Harsh title? But, here’s the truth: There can be power in numbers.
1+1+1 = 10
Thats the goal, and collaboration can deliver that.
Can you team up with 2 other individuals and take your ideas or product launch to a new level? Can you find someone who’s got a different set of skills that can make your product or service 10X better by collaborating?
The key is finding the right people - people who are willing to share their expertise and want to use that expertise for mutual success. It can be a big ask. It’s impossible to ask for something like this without providing some kind of value in return. You have to build a relationship of trust and you have to lay out everything upfront to manage the expectations.
I definitely think Collaboration now easier than ever before. You can connect with anyone in the world. You can communicate instantly and you can build global businesses and global brands. You have to do the work to find the right people. It comes down to how much you want it, and how hard you’re willing to work for it
What is your unique proposition?
Are you giving more than receiving?
Are you that person who can bring someone’s project to the next level?
Are you willing to give your time and resources to let someone else be successful?
Collaboration works both ways. Be open to collaborations from others while looking for collaborators for your projects. Either way it’s bound to open some doors.
