"The reality is if you are not clear on the best approach to partnerships, you risk creating a partnership that's a liability, which isn't good for you or your business." – Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas

“You have to be willing to cut partnerships quickly that are not serving you. It's not personal, it's simply business, and there's a way to exit that relationship while centering the other person's humanity.” – Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas
