With the children’s help, we’ve got five companies we plan to approach to talk about creating a partnership. Mr. Divine’s guy came back and cut the number down to three because the other two gad bad business practices which included and but was not limited to, dodgy associates. By that, I mean people that can get you thrown into jail or killed. That made things a lot more simple.
Over the next few weeks, we set up meetings to speak to the people in charge of the businesses we wanted to deal with and started to draw up contracts about what would be expected by both parties. We tried to keep things basic as we still needed to have a proper chat with the people we planned to approach.
The first guy we spoke with was the guy with the paddle board business. He was interested in what we had to say but wanted us to explain how the business would exactly benefit him. As passionate as I was about the possibility of working with partners to boost the business I didn’t want to give too much away.
Mr. Divine did most of the talking, with myself adding in bits and bobs as we went along. By the second presentation we had the process down to a T. Two of the three people we approached were interested and we worked with them, continuing negations to get the way how we would link the businesses established. The kids, because they were smart, figured out what we were doing and added another company into the mix.
By the time we were done, we had established contracts with three companies and were setting up a one month trial run to work out any potential problems we might encounter. We are all eager to evaluate the outcome so we can move forward. Another step along the exciting path to discovering one’s full potential.
