Intro to JV's

What are JV's?

JV Partners like Referral Partners, except instead of introducing you to 1 person at a time, they're introducing you to their entire community.

JV Partners are win/win partnerships, where often you each promote each other.
Your JV Partner is your “business friends with benefits." -Jenn August, Lifetime Thrive Member

Why are JV's so great?

1 highly influential JV Partner could completely fill you up with high-paying clients.
5 less inflluential JV Partners, could also completely fill you up with high-paying clients.

How do you find JV's?
Take advantage of the JV Directory where other entrepreneurs who are looking for JV's connect.

What are Embedded JV's?

Embedded JV's, as our friend Charles Byrd defines it, are JV Partners where your free gift is a fixture in their business. For example, at every Summit, we give the gift of Penelope Jane Smith's Financial Freedom 101 Event as a bonus for signing up for the Philanthropy Club. And, she gives Full Scholarships to the Summit as a bonus for coming to Financial Freedom 101. This means we each "promote" each other 3 times per year.

What's the secret to great JV's?
The secret is to make your long-term friendship more important than your short-term desire to have them promote you.

There are thousands of people who you could partner with. So, choose to partner with only your favorite people.

And, then be super generous. The more you lead with generosity, the more likely your partner will want to be generous with you.
