“Where Two or More Are Gathered …” Transforming My Sole Proprietorship into a Partnership

The more I have delved in understanding my personality type, its strengths,  weaknesses and my natural preferences, I am in the process of writing a job description for one of the three partners I will be bringing into my company. The first to hire will be someone who complements my strengths and fills in for the tasks I really don’t enjoying doing and therefore are considered natural weaknesses or challenges for my personality type.

How will I pay for hiring someone? Ah well, it really is quite simple. My complement and first partner thrives on connecting and talking  with people. His or her job description will include public relations, fund-raising, and sales … wholly on commission … because he or she thrives on the challenge.

This particular person though isn’t in it just for the money, they are compelled to making the world a better place with a social business venture dedicated to transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle.

Raised funds and sales will mean a salary for both of us and when profit is high enough then I will be recruiting two other partners, one who will manage operations and logistics (I already have a person in mind for this role) and one who will be the executive administrator.

The three partners will be required to buy equity from their salaries, all will be paid equally, and their total company equity will not rise higher than 35% , in order for me to retain 65%, some of which will also be used to establish the foundation and an innovation/education/mentoring facility.

My primary focus will remain creating product, books, and services around the core concept, as well as heading the team, until I pass responsibility onto the management team. Once the management team is at the required level of expertise and the desired income level, then I will move onto other endeavors because I have realized and accepted that what I excel best at and am happiest with are creating something from nothing to solve problems and to help people.

A special note to anyone interested … please wait until the job description is posted in order to get a clearer picture of the role and responsibilities, plus the directions on how to apply. Thank you.

It’s going to be an interesting, dynamic, and fun year!

“The Class Pay Gap: Why It Pays to be Privileged” … STILL HAPPENING in 2019

” … the key issue is that when the following wind of privilege is misread as merit, the inequalities that result are legitimised. This leads those who have been fortunate to believe they have earned it on their own, and those who have been less fortunate to blame themselves.”

When we realize not everyone has to like us for us to be okay, we are freed to be the unique person we are. We are also empowered to develop healthy relationships with people who do like us, encourage us, support us, and overall, accept us for who we are … and vice versa.
