Business partners and a FREE Zappos Gift

T0day, I was fortunate enough to get to speak to an audience regarding co-branding and business partnerships!  To draw out core concepts, I asked the group the following questions and thought they might help you consider your essentials of partnering:

  • In your personal life or in business, where have you accomplished more because you partnered with someone else?
  • Who was/were your partner(s)
  • How did you select them?
  • What competencies did they bring to the table?
  • What was their level of investment?
  • What reward did you derive?  Was the reward known/discussed going in?

These questions set a foundation for broader distinctions between those who are business partners in name only as opposed to those who integrate with our own business processes.  While I will expand on these types of distinctions in future blogs, I would love to hear your answers to the above-referenced questions and the insights you gain from considering them.

I am grateful for those who have partnered with me through the years and as such offer you the following free preview of my Zappos Experience book.

Upon review, I hope you will share your honest thoughts online (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc).  Again thank you for your partnership
