When we were in corporate life we could consider ourselves lucky if we had one good work friend who shared our workspace or who we worked on projects with.

Whether you’re a corporate escapee or an accidental entrepreneur, one of the dreams you may have had when you started your coaching, consulting, or other expertise-based business was that you could work with people you genuinely like, even love.

So imagine the fun, the excitement of building a business with your best friend.

Even in the struggles, you’ve got someone to share the ups and downs, to lighten the load, and to help maximize revenue.

But what happens when it suddenly ends — and it ends because of a tragedy?

In today’s episode you’ll meet Everett O’Keefe the owner of an agency called The Solution Machine.

Listen in and you’ll hear him share…

  • How he dealt from the loss from a business standpoint and shares tips for how you can begin planning now for the worst
