Recently my business partner & I put our first property under contract (as a team). The outcome of this transaction fed my soul & definitely improved my relationship with my business partner (who happens to be my son). I learned to let go (not be mom) and trust the system to take care of finding the flaws in a deal he took the lead on. I think this helped my son fell like he was working with a business partner & not his mom, and that he was capable to do his end of the deal without my involvement. Though the outcome was not what we wanted, & we had challenges with the transaction, he said he learned valuable lessons. This was huge for us as we had not been seeing eye to eye well since I introduced him to the FB weekend and we signed up as a team 2-1/2 months ago. I learned to use his enthusiasm (instead of feeling like I was being rushed all the time), to trust that with time, we would both learn to appreciate and respect each other's style of work, and to be conscious of treating him with more respect as my business partner as opposed to seeing him first as my son in business. He said he learned I had a vital and involved job of paperwork that he had not anticipated, and personally, he would take more time evaluating & crunching numbers as well as establishing negotiating room (after inspection) with a seller during the process of making a verbal offer. I know we will be better as partners in transactions because of this event. I am grateful for FB because this only brings us closer as a family! Thank you!


Shout Outs & Testimonials

Tim Rosenthal has been instrumental in helping me to see the work process in a different light. His gentle spirit with great insight has helped me to re-think how I could make my business relationship with my son a more positive experience. His first call to me was not his last, and he has reached out without being in a coaching session with me. FB kept an eye on us to make certain we succeed and asked him to help along & he called me not as a coach. FB, I am so very grateful for your true caring. My business partner (& son) haven't completed our first transaction together, but we are moving forward. Thank you again!
