>> WELCOME TO BUSINESS

PARTNERING FROM THE HEART.

>> OH, THAT'S CUTE.

>> I'M REALLY HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

HERE--YOU LIKE THAT?

>> YES.

>> WE'RE HAPPY TO BE HERE.

AFTER SHEKINAH AND I TALKED, WE

DECIDED TO GO TO A BUSINESS

RETREAT CENTER.

MAYBE THIS CAN HELP OUR

PARTNERSHIP.

>> ALL OF YOU IN HERE HAVE

CHOSEN TO WORK WITH ONE ANOTHER

AS A BUSINESS PARTNER.

IS THAT CORRECT?

>> NO, SHE BASICALLY DOESN'T

BELIEVE I'M GOOD ENOUGH TO BE A

BUSINESS PARTNER, RIGHT,

BECAUSE--

>> HEY, HEY, SHE DIDN'T SAY GO

THAT DEEP.

JUST, YOU KNOW--

>> I JUST WANT TO TELL HER

WHAT'S GOIN' ON.

>> OKAY, SO LET'S DO THIS.

I'M GONNA ASK YOU TO PUT YOUR

HAND ON YOUR HEART, SAY YOUR

NAME, AND THEN TELL US WHY YOU

ARE HERE.

THIS IS WHAT WE CALL THE TALKING

STICK.

IF YOU'RE HOLDING THE TALKING

STICK, YOU GET TO TALK.

>> WHEN CAN I HOLD IT?

>> OTHERS WILL BE QUIET AND JUST

LISTEN.

WILL WE ALL AGREE TO THAT?

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> THANK YOU.

>> SO FAR, EVERYTHING'S GOING

PRETTY SMOOTHLY.

I CAN SEE THAT SHEKINAH'S A

LITTLE BIT TENSE, BUT I THINK

AFTER THIS FIRST EXERCISE,

SHE'LL LOOSEN UP A LITTLE BIT.

>> MM-HMM.

>> OKAY, THANK YOU.

WELCOME.

>> HI.

>> HI.

>> MY NAME IS SHEKINAH, OKAY?

I AM A HAIRSTYLIST.

SHE STILL IS MY CLIENT, OKAY?

HOWEVER, SHE'S TINY, AND I'M

SHEKINAH, WHICH MEANS SHE'S A

SINGER.

SHE'S A MOTHER.

SHE'S MARRIED TO A RICH-ASS MAN.

SHE'S RICH AS WELL, SO WHEN

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT GOIN' IN

BUSINESS WITH THIS YOUNG LADY,

IT'S ALWAYS--SHE WANTS THE,

LIKE, 90, AND I'M SUPPOSED TO

GET, YOU KNOW, 10.

>> NO, IT'S NEVER THAT--

>> YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO SPEAK.

I HAVE THE STICK.

>> BUT YOU ARE LYING.

>> YOU WERE JUST LYING!

>> OKAY, CAN WE--

>> I DID NOT INTERRUPT YOU, NOT

ONE TIME.

>> OKAY, SORRY.

>> TELL HER SHE'S DISRESPECTFUL.

[Tameka, indistinct]

[bells chime]

>> SO WHEN YOU HEAR THE BELLS,

I'M ASKING EVERYONE IN THE ROOM

TO PLEASE BE QUIET.

AND I DO WANT TO ASK AGAIN, CAN

WE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINE OF THE

STICK?

>> OKAY.

IT WAS MY FAULT.

>> THANKS.

SO SHE FEELS LIKE, YOU KNOW,

IN LIFE, BY HER BEING TINY, I'M

SUPPOSED TO TAKE 10% OF WHATEVER

SHE HAS TO OFFER, AND THAT'S NOT

FAIR.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I THINK IS COOL.

I'VE CAME UP WITH GREAT IDEAS,

AND I'VE PLAYED MY POSITION.

SHE'S NEVER ON TIME.

>> YOU ARE NEVER ON TIME.

WE JUST GOT IN HERE, AND

WE'RE ALREADY ARGUING.

I THINK THAT THIS INSTRUCTOR'S

GONNA HAVE HER WORK CUT OUT.

I DON'T REALLY SEE HOW

ANYTHING'S GONNA CHANGE.

>> MAY I HAVE THE STICK?

>> I'M NOT THROUGH.

>> YES.

>> I'M LEAVIN' BECAUSE I'M NOT

EVEN DONE, AND IT'S NOT FAIR.

>> CAN YOU FINISH UP IN ABOUT

TWO SENTENCES, PLEASE?

>> YES.

AND I LOVE MY FRIEND DEARLY, YOU

UNDERSTAND?

AND IT'S NOTHIN', BUT, YOU KNOW,

FAIR IS FAIR, RIGHT IS RIGHT,

AND WRONG IS WRONG.

>> OKAY, ONE MORE SECOND OR

SENTENCE.

>> WELL, I'M DONE.

>> NO, WRAP IT UP.

>> I DON'T WANT TO WRAP IT.

IT'S ALREADY A WRAP.

WE'RE WRAPPED.

>> OKAY.

>> I'M DROPPING MY PHONES.

>> IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE NOT

FEELING APPRECIATED AND VALUED.

I THINK OUR EXERCISES TODAY

WILL ADDRESS MANY OF THESE

THINGS.

I HOPE THAT WE CAN ALL AGREE TO

BE OPEN AND BE WILLING TO

RECEIVE FEEDBACK.

>> YEAH.

>> SHE CAN'T.

>> AND WE'RE AGREEING TO FOLLOW

THE GUIDELINES, THE TALKING

STICK, THE BELLS--ANY TIME YOU

HEAR THESE BELLS--

[bells chime]

>> OOH, GIRL, THAT IS THE WORST

SOUND.

>> EVERYBODY, PLEASE STOP

TALKING.

>> SHE NEED TO GET RID OF THEM

BELLS.
