More about this course

As a business law attorney, I've worked with all kinds of businesses. I've worked with startups and companies that have been around for decades. I've worked with sole proprietors and companies with dozens of employees. Consequently, I've learned a lot about when people work well together and when they don't.

And people usually come see me when they don't.

But it doesn't have to be this way. By taking the time to vet and understand prospective collaborators and project partners that you want to work with, you can avoid the pitfalls, challenges, and litigation that so many other people face.

Who Should Take This Class:

  • Creative collaborators
  • Business owners
  • Business consultants and advisors
  • Talent managers and advisors
  • and anyone who wants to work on projects with another party

What You Will Learn:

  • How to conduct a proper Google search, social media analysis, and general inquiry
  • How to ask and what questions to ask prospective partners
  • How to assess prospective partners using the partner questionnaire information included in the course
  • The common pitfalls and mistakes that are made with collaborations
  • How to conduct more in-depth research with the assistance of the collaborator
  • The financial and legal considerations that you need to know about

The course project

The Class Project:

For the class project, you'll conduct an assessment of your current and future goals, values, etc. so that you will be able to compare them to the information that you obtain when you assess the partner questionnaire. By having both questionnaires available for review, you will be in a better position to determine whether a prospective partner or collaborator is a good fit.

You will be uploading as little or as much of your questionnaire as you would like so that others can learn and be inspired to build successful partner and collaborator relationships too.
