In short, you do! But what does that really mean? We’ve never understood why most networks say the word “ownership” but never truly explain it. Do you really have true ownership if you have:
- a time-vested schedule of ownership in your own agency?
- a Non-Compete or non-solicit?
- a buyout fee when you leave?
Newsflash… NO ONE owns a client! That’s why we don’t restrict you if you decide to leave.
To us, ownership means you own the relationship with your client without restriction… period. If you decide to leave, you are welcome to move that relationship with you.
