Today on StartupSmart, we look at how to build a happy business partnership.
While having someone to share the load when starting up is invaluable, rifts are common. We speak to those who have been on the frontline of warring partnerships to find out how to maintain harmony.
Elsewhere, environmental consultant Richard Nicol warns against ‘greenwashing’ in your marketing and mentor Martin Nally untangles the difference between employees, contractors, sole traders and freelancers.
Finally, the 2011 StartupSmart Awards are being held tonight at Crown Metropol in Melbourne. We look forward to meeting the contenders tonight.
We will be publishing details on the winners tonight, with a must-read wrap-up of the awards tomorrow morning. Don’t miss out.
