Determination, resilience and support are vital for entrepreneurial survival. Learn the best tip Kim Vopni shares from her mentor that changed her business and how she views all aspects of her life to achieve success.

When Priska and Dana set out to start a company from scratch with a patentable, complex manufactured product, they couldn't do it all themselves.  Listen to their story of how choosing partners to work with in your business, whether manufacturing, distribution, legal, sales or marketing is critical.  Also, what to do if you've got the wrong partner.

I won't spoil it, but their product, the Bare Bottle, is available in Babies 'R Us locations across the USA.  Think they figured the partnership thing out?
