So this is like a reiteration of my previous blog entry about selecting your business partners!! After building rapport & trust with the individual who shares your passion, you must work to continue to build and maintain that relationship as relationships define life!
And this goes beyond sipping wine, cocktails, paying for them at a five-star restaurant, or baking them treats. While it is still part of the equation, a big chunk of it comes from tolerating their shortcomings by meeting them halfway!
In the business world, there are always secret clashing between partners on their objectives or on how they handle things. Sometimes we become so embroiled in our personal feelings regarding our business that we fail to see the bigger picture: working together to make a difference in the world! This goes way beyond generating revenue, although that’s your ultimate goal.
It can be such a pride expenditure to not execute the blueprint of an idea loaded with finesse only because your partner disagrees with it. However, if you want your business to thrive then you must be willing to meet them halfway! As once again, life is defined by relationships!
