  1. Great advice guys. I can’t seem to find Reva Systems. Would you be able to post a link?

  2. Sorry Lawrence you’ve been knocked off top spot episode ! This was an awesome episode which I am sure many like myself can relate too .. in fact Id rather pay income tax than partner tax! Clear concise and enjoyable to listen to always.

  3. Loved this. My first two companies failed largely due to partner troubles, unnecessary jealousy, differences in work ethic, yadda yadda. Great perspective here.
