It is proven that companies that are successful in building strategic partnerships grow much faster with less costs and less financial risks. They are able to enter new markets and face up to competition much easier.
So why there are so few business that have strategic alliances?
Working together requires a specific skill set , the right mindset and more important, you need time and energy to make it a success. It’s a long term strategy and most partnerships fail because of the above.

Tip from Cindy
When you want to build a successful partnership, you need to invest time and energy in it. It’s like a love relationship. The first time you get to know your wife, soulmate, you need time and effort to get to know each other, understand on what is important for both parties and make clear agreements. If you don’t invest in your love relationship, it might happen that your husband or wife cheats on you.
This is exactly the same with a strategic partnership. The reason why so many partnerships fail is because they haven’t thought clearly about why working together, if the values are compatible and about the win for both parties.
Partnerships is a long-term strategy which requires time, effort and energy but if you do it right, it can make a difference between struggling many years with your business and working hard or becoming successful much faster and working smart.
Her motto is: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
