The strength of your partnership has a big impact on your business results. CopreneurCPR helps you steer toward success by strengthening the foundations of your relationship – communication, agreements, expectations and accountability. We help you work on what makes your relationship thrive, so that together you can create the business you want.
When you strip away the extraneous, you’re able to focus on what’s essential for making sound business decisions. We help you work on the business of your business – identifying profit levers, evaluating growth strategies, removing business blockages and understanding the financial implications of your decisions and actions.
The CPR Baseline consists of thirty-six statements that provide insight to your relationship as copreneurs. You and your partner will respond separately and when completed you’ll have a picture of how you individually view your business and personal partnership. We recommend that you schedule time to compare your results and discuss what they mean as a business couple.

Working and living together presented challenges that quite honestly we hadn’t counted on. We thought our shared interests were enough. What we realized is that we needed help to make us business partners. The CPR Baseline was a huge help in getting us started in a new direction.
The goal of owning a business together felt right, but we found our actions didn’t always match up with our expectations. We knew we needed an outside perspective. Ron and Margaret helped us define our roles and communicate better.
The CPR Baseline helped us step back from the day-to-day to focus on all the aspects of our business and personal partnership. We were drifting before now – I’m not sure we would have even known where to start. We have a much better handle on our issues now and we’re making progress.
