Ready, Set, Go!

We’ve been having fun this summer: playing golf, working on an event Conserving Nature’s Resources and otherwise expanding our horizons. I think we have learned a few things about one another: 1. We enjoy working together, but we still want to kill each other just about every other day. 2. You better like the person you work with otherwise you will kill them. 3. You had better be able to figure out how to communicate or you will kill each other. 4. Being to busy is no excuse for ignoring your blog.

We didn’t kill each other, although it was touch and go there for awhile, and now we’re back in the saddle. Seriously, we have learned that we both need to be better communicators, especially when you’re in business together and working together almost everyday. We’re also on a learning curve of one another’s strengths and weaknesses, who is better able to perform what roles. While we had a successful event October 7, it nearly killed both of us.

We’re here for you if need advice on not killing your business partner. We’re also here for you if you are interested in planning your first event, we made plenty of mistakes and are happy to share our experiences.
