Without a doubt. Were I starting over today from scratch. And was trying to optimize my chances for long term success.
I would immediately begin to form as many power partnerships (aka) mutually beneficial Joint Venture (JV) arrangements as possible. This way each partner and myself could systematically leverage each others strengths.
And help minimize each others weaknesses. Plus this proven approach allows you to not only
benefit from all the current resources, contacts and assets they already have. But the ones they’ll have
in the not so distant future.
