The opportunity

Building a successful business can create life-changing wealth.

We fund, teach, and support our Operating Partners in building a million-dollar business, and help them benefit financially from its success. Although money can’t buy happiness, it can increase life satisfaction and well-being. Having money in the bank can eliminate stress over everyday expenses and improve living standards and quality. If you want your future life to look different than today, take steps now and change your future.

Path to a better life

For those dedicated to completing the Operating Partner Program, there are significant financial benefits. These take the form of annual compensation, profit sharing, and other business perks. These benefits are summarized below in 1, 5, and 10 year milestones, but every year in between (and after) provides increased financial benefit. There is no limit to your opportunity with Better Together Brands!

Salary, Bonus, and Commissions

Salary, Bonus, and Commissions

Annual compensation comes in 3 forms – salary, bonus, and commissions. Each Operating Partner starts the business and wealth building journey at $35,000 base salary and has the opportunity to earn a lot more based on business results. Expected minimum annual compensation looks like:

Year 1 $50,000 or more
Year 5 $75,000 or more
Year 10 $100,000 or more

NOTE: These financial benefits can be realized sooner based on business results.
By year 5 (or earlier), an Operating Partner could buy a home worth $225,000 or more, send a child to college, start a nest egg for retirement, and take some really cool vacations!

Profit Sharing

Ownership

Operating Partners earn into the ownership of the business as a direct result of their contributions to business performance. Ownership follows a vesting schedule and is expected to generate significant financial benefits over a 10 year period. Operating Partners work with a financial planner to create a personalized Wealth Building Plan that lifts them to the top 25% of wealth by reaching specific financial goals:

Year 1 $10,000 or more
Year 5 $125,000 or more
Year 10 $400,000 or more

NOTE: These financial benefits can be realized sooner based on business results.
By year 5 (or earlier), an Operating Partner could buy their own business, send a child to college, invest in a retirement account, and take some amazing vacations!

Business Perks

Business Perks

One of the benefits of small business is that certain expenses are allowed to be paid out of the business, as long as they are directly related to the business. Our Operating Partners appreciate these additional perks which benefit them but are paid for by the business. These include:

  • Company vehicle
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • Business wardrope
  • Team meals and events

Other Intangibles

Other Intangibles

You will learn to develop your own leadership style as you slowly build a team to achieve business goals. You will learn to outreach within the local community and develop relationships with stakeholders who can help you succeed. Finally, you will develop a personalized Wealth Building Plan designed to bring you financial security and lifelong wealth.

Mentorship & Support

Outside of the classroom, our Operating Partners continue to learn and receive valuable feedback on their leadership and business performance. The support they receive comes from many sources including:

A BUSINESS CONSULTANT

Each business concept has a dedicated consultant who is always available to answer questions and provide guidance. This person will be invaluable to Operating Partners as they learn to navigate their unique business model. Asking questions is how we learn … there’s no such thing as a dumb question!

A DEDICATED COACH

Each Operating Partner is assigned an experienced person responsible for maximizing their success. Your coach will schedule regular sessions with you to ensure you are on track to reach the business goals, recommend ways you can improve business results, and help remove obstacles that are in your way.

A NETWORK OF PEERS

You will have access to other operators in the same (and different) business concepts that you are building, and you will come to rely on these relationships for camaraderie, best practices, and support. When possible, conferences will be offered so Operating Partners can further expand their peer network.

A FINANCIAL PLANNER

As part of your apprenticeship with Better Together Brands, you will create a personalized Wealth Building Plan to secure the financial future of your dreams. Working with a professional financial planner helps you take the right steps today to reach your income and wealth goals tomorrow. It is our goal for you that by the end of the Operating Partner Program, your income and wealth will be in the top 25% of all Americans (that’s annual income of $100K or greater and wealth of $400K or greater).

With Better Together Brands, you are NEVER alone. We are here to mentor and support you during every step of your business and wealth building journey so your financial dreams come true. We believe we are #BetterTogether!

Unlimited opportunity

Unlimited opportunity

Unlimited financial potential is available to Operating Partners who successfully build a Better Together business to a million dollars in sales.

After $1,000,000 in unit sales is achieved and Operating Partner training is completed, Operating Partners have the opportunity to “double down” and buy additional ownership in the business. Or, they can add a second business to their General Manager responsibilities. Then a third, then a fourth, then a fifth, etc. “Doubling down” is a great way to multiply your wealth building potential with Better Together Brands.

Is your current environment holding you back? Step up to a new life of unlimited potential where the only thing holding you back is YOU.

There is no limit to your opportunity with Better Together Brands!
