Genuine understanding that the partner role is about funding the business. You can write a check to cover the costs of the business (aka, payroll) or you can build a book of business that is sustainable in both up and down markets/situations. The book of business is just a proxy that you know your market, have clients’ confidence, have built capabilities that are relevant, know how to commercialize these capabilities against tough competitors, and you’ve built a team that can deliver the goods without you being the day-to-day project manager.
