That goes the same for business as it does in life. And I don’t just mean a business partner where you start a business together.
I’m talking about a partner at work who makes you better at your job. Someone who gets what the mission is and knows that by working together, you both can achieve success.
As an author, I found that partner in my illustrator, Jeff York.
My mission? To write an M&A business book from a survivor’s POV. One that was satirical. Yes, I know, tall order.
My words painted a clear picture of the journey and the comical aspects of M&A. His illustrations brought the stages and M&A personalities to life. The final book, NOW WHAT?, serves as both a M&A practitioner’s playbook and a survivor’s handbook. And it does so satirically.
Find a partner who not only believes in your vision but who comes to the partnership with an expertise that makes your vision even better.
