What are your responsibilities?

Remember your obligations.

We don’t know why people say most partnerships fail. We can only guess. Values, directions, whatever. We have never asked nor researched. 

When we decided to work together as business partners, we had already worked as colleagues in DDB for six years or so. Perhaps that helped in forging the teamwork and understanding. 

Importantly, we think two things made our partnership work well so far.

One, the feeling of obligation and responsibility to the other. Not wanting to let your partner down should be something that you are conscious of daily. Otherwise, it is easy to take things for granted.

Two, believing that it is difficult to measure qualitative things. Don’t compare who is doing more or less. For example, Long would do most of the presentations and Wan Hoon would do most of the financial paperwork. One is standing for two hours at most, the other is two days of excel sheets. 

Treat your business partner how you would like to be treated.

Have you done your work today?
