How do you find the right business partner?
I am very good at coming up with ideas and pitching for clients but when it comes to selling - that's a domain I am always not comfortable with.
Countless projects lay in ruins just because I couldn’t be able to sell and bring them into fruition.
For example, I will start a project, launch it successfully but I’ll become a total wussy when it comes to selling my ideas or projects. I mean, standing in front of people or customers selling my ideas is really hard for me and I normally can’t take any project further than an initial mail or contact.
I came up with an idea - why not look for a partner who can sell - someone who can take a project and then take it further?
That’s when I had to make an ad in the daily newspapers looking for a partner.
It took a week before I got my first call for a potential partner.
We met for a beer as an interview ( I wanted to see if we have something in common before committing down the line) and discussed a lot of ideas that night - and as they say the rest is history.
