4 Tips On Finding The Perfect Business Partners
April 2, 2016
I’ve seen people struggle with pretty much anything in business, but if there’s one thing that terrifies business owners, is trusting other business owners to co-own and co-run their business. Partnerships are essential if you’re interested in not only growing an existing business, but also finding and exploring the qualities of other people. So here are some tips on finding the best business partners you can find:
TIP #1 – Trust
Do not, under any circumstance, get a partner that you don’t trust 110%. The last thing you want is have someone destroy your business, and worse of all without you even knowing. This happens more often than you can imagine.
TIP #2 – Better Half
Make sure that your other partner has strengths that don’t necessarily match with your own. You want to use that partner as leverage to grow a much bigger business by bringing in a different set of skills and experience. Avoid finding someone just like you.
TIP #3 – Communication
Communication is key in business, and in life for that matter. Make sure you can communicate and understand each other properly. And not only that, but also be very clear about who is in charge. There’s only one CEO, ever…
TIP #4 – Networking
This is probably the best tip when it comes to prospecting for a new partner. The more connections you have the better, your best friends will most likely not lie to you. So make sure you have the best, best friends you can have, that will not only tell you the truth, but can also guide you towards the right person for the job.
