I am open to new partnerships
Theme of the Day
When you see yourself in a positive light, it attracts others of like minds.
Welcome to Day 28 of the challenge. If you’re jumping in right now, be sure to check out the Welcome to the Triple Dog Dare to get started. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post with a hyperlink.
Some people are content with working alone and this works well for them. Other people thrive in the presence of others. As a business owner, there will be times when you will not be able to work alone. It’s going to be important to work with others. Working with others will allow you to take your business to the next level.
The best partnerships aren’t dependent on a mere common goal but on a shared path of equality, desire, and no small amount of passion. – Sarah MacLean
During a discovery session with a potential client, we looked an area he wanted to focus on: business growth. Several questions later, it was discovered he was trying to do everything himself. When I say everything, I mean everything: content creation, making appointments, building his website, and social media management. This left no time to network or build relationships with people.
While most start-ups need to do the work on their own due to budget constraints, over time — if you want to grow — it’s important to create partnerships with others or outsource the work. Business cannot exist in a vacuum and nor is it a one man/woman show. Two of Cups reminds you that business requires transactions and communication with other people.
Perfect partners don’t exist. Perfect conditions exist for a limited time in which partnerships express themselves best. – Wayne Rooney
If you have been operating as a one person show, step back and ask yourself why. When I posed this same question to the potential client, he mentioned that he didn’t trust those he interacted to do as good of a job as he did.
We worked on a strategy to where he could delegate his social media to an expert in order to free up some time for him to go out an network with more people. At first it was hard, but he saw how his social media presence increased and so did his network.
When you’re building a company, you need to continually strengthen every component – finance, strategic partnerships, executive team, and relationships with every last constituency. – Michael J. Saylor
By him setting the intent of trusting the universe, he was able to find the right social media company for his small business. When you see yourself in a positive light, you’ll attract like minds and your business will grow.
You have TWO Triple Dog Dare Challenges today. Read the challenges and close your eyes to connect with what the challenge is asking of you. Allow yourself to walk through the experience and be sure to capture as much as you can with your words as well as intent.
Triple Dog Dare Challenge #1: Is there something in your current business that could benefit from an outside team? If so, take some time to explore some possibilities of outsourcing some tasks. Be sure to talk to someone and see if it would be a strong benefit.
Triple Dog Dare Challenge #2: Attend an unconventional networking event such as being a volunteer for an event or perform some type of community service. When you volunteer for a cause that means a lot to you, then more than likely you’re going to meet others who think like you.
