Importance of choosing great partnerships for your business
If you want to make big things, do them by yourself. If you want to make extraordinary things, do it with a team. This article is intended to show you the importance of surrounding by the right people and choosing the best partnership for your business.
“It is essential to work with the right people that aspire to the same things, search for success as you are doing it and contributes with ideas that will make your company grow up”, advised Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
But how to know if you are associating with the right partner? First step and maybe the most important one is to trust that person, by trusting your instincts. If you ever think of making a partnership with a person who is highly recommended but you do not feel you can trust him, stop before it is too later. Putting everything in writing is as important as finding the right partner, so always make sure both sides know where the boundaries are, which role you will play and your compensations. A clear contract agreed by both parts is essential before you start any partnership.
Getting a new partner for your business will be, somehow, similar to marrying a person, you have to date him or her to know each other better before you take that very important decision of joining, and the same goes for business, if you want to know if your possible business partner is trustworthy, you must know him for at least one year.
If you have decided to get partners for your company, it will be recommended not to get more than two; many different opinions and way of thinking can cause trouble at a company.
“Partnership should be a tool to make your company stronger, get someone you really trust in, who has strengths that will complement you and ideas that will make your business become more successful”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
