Dos & Donts of Establishing
a Professional Relationship

Do bring people into your business who can do the job better than you.

Dont trick yourself into thinking that only you can do everything
in your business.

Do use freelancers and trial hiring periods for both parties to


decide if they are a good !t.

Dont be discouraged if someone you want to partner with says


no. Try again at another time.

Do hire for character and train skills.

Do make sure that you can trust anyone that you partner with.

Dont forget the importance of open communication at all times.

Do make sure that there are bene!ts for BOTH parties.

The best way to begin a relationship with a potential joint


venture partner is to !rst be a person of value. You must !nd
ways to add value to them !rst before ever asking for something
that YOU want. The more that you can make their life easier,
save them time or make them money, the more likely that they
will want to begin a business partnership with you.
