Anything good that has ever happened in my work has been a result of relationships. People run businesses. People are the ones who make decisions. Then why do so many of us forget this simple fact when we enter into a business partnerships (small or large)?

Do everything you can to be nice to people and create win-win scenarios with your work. The truth is, people change jobs and careers often and you never know where your friend will land next or how much influence they have as they continue through their career.

Build business relationships that are founded on a sincere care for others. It’s the relationships that matter most.
