FORGING A PARTNERSHIP: “FINDING YOUR KIND”. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you INYANG SAMI-ORUNGBE (PARTNER – AVERTI PROFESSIONAL MANAGERS).
A partnership is an agreement to finance and operate a business. In running a business there is always conflict. You have to reach a consensus, everybody has to feel they have won. In dealing with conflict, are you ready to admit you are wrong? Understand your strength and weaknesses, be strategic in your partnership. In a partnership, you have to be patient, monitor and measure. Celebrate when things go right.
Find a partner that shares your values, faith. A partner that can bring skills to the business, a partner that has little or no personal baggage. Find a partner that can bring in resources and credibility into the business.
Be transparent and very open, choose a partner that is financially stable, someone that has good business ethics.
Respect and Honor: You have to respect your partner, you have to be able to represent your partner.
In conclusion, ask yourself why you want a partner, choose wisely and be discerning. Thank you.
