So often in business, we find ourselves in such a lonely place. Where you know, out in the grind, out and doing what we’re doing and we feel isolated sometimes. We’re too focused, too busy with our tasks and solving our own problems.
There’s this saying that is really inspiring in a way – “There is not one thing, there is not one problem within your business that you cannot solve with the people in the room.” So true. Two heads or more is so much better than one.
And you know, those in the real estate space, it’s like you go! Go! Go! And sometimes we put our head up and we go, “Wow! am I going the right direction?”
No matter how well we have our direction mapped out for us, no matter how carefully we plan our week, month or year, sometimes we encounter setbacks and detours that we don’t anticipate.
So, what we can do is share some of the challenges, and also have our fellow team members gather around the table to actually give us advice. Allow them to give us strategies and to give us support.
Facilitating a workshop is also a great idea. Businesses collaborating together to help one another, through workshop where different ideas and different strategies are shared.
So, I think the more we can collaborate, the more we can share, the more we can grow. It is by working together, by sharing ideas that we can improve on our current strategies. We get a fresh perspective. A new way to tackle the problem. A different set of eyes to see areas for improvement.
Each one of us bring different experiences, different strengths into the table. I might have a good idea for the business – you might also have a good idea for the business. Imagine what will happen if we combine our ideas and work through the challenges together. We are going to be unstoppable!
Entrepreneurship does not have to be a long and lonely journey. Very often, we find ourselves travelling the same road – with some already far ahead while others lag behind. We just have to be willing to work together, to listen, encourage, and lend a hand when necessary.
Ask yourselves today, “Who am I collaborating with? Who am I working with to strategize my challenges?”
And when you realize the importance of collaboration, I guarantee that business will improve and achieve a bigger success.
