Getting real about partnerships from Business to Freelance

Running a business is hard. Running a business with a bad cofounder or partnership quickly becomes a nightmare. The “myth” of the solo-entrepreneur has sexy allure, but we all know it really takes a team to launch a successful venture or project. So, how do you find the right person or team to complement you? How do you keep things healthy when things get hard (because they will). How do you end things (with as few bodies as possible) if things go sideways?

Whether you’re a startup founder looking for (or having issues with) a co-founder, or a side-hustling freelancer trying to find the right clients (or shake the wrong ones), we are so pleased to have Jaime Roth (mediator, lawyer, and partnership expert) with us in March. Jaime used to get called in as an attorney when things had already broken down beyond repair, and people in conflict just wanted to wage war.

She realized there had to be a better way. Today, she helps entrepreneurs craft meaningful agreements, navigate difficult conversations, and confront conflict productively.

She’ll share THE critical questions to ask before getting serious in any business relationship — and if you’re already committed (but the honeymoon is over), you’ll learn actionable steps to address difficult issues while keeping things constructive.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to:

• Take action to filter out the wrong relationships in your work life 

• Set boundaries and expectations to bring about the best outcomes 

• Create agreements that can help avert disaster 

• Get more comfortable with conflict so it doesn’t throw you off your game 

• Invite the people and situations that will help you maximize your potential

Jaime is an attorney in private practice at Roth Legal Solutions LLC, where she provides general counsel services for growing businesses and employment law counsel to companies and individuals. She is also the Co-Founder of True Connect, LLC, where she helps new co-founders establish a solid foundation for their business, and helps existing business partners navigate change and conflict.

Jaime formerly litigated workplace disputes as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York and served as in-house counsel to the Hudson River Park Trust in Manhattan. While Jaime is a skilled advocate in the courtroom, her passion is helping people build amazing things together, rather than helping to tear each other apart. Jaime honed her conflict resolution skills at the New York Peace Institute and has since mediated and facilitated hundreds of difficult conversations between neighbors, parents, divorcing spouses, and business partners.
