Find the right person for the success
[Gregory’s Work and People]
Many business people launch their businesses with a lot of partners in the world, but they have some experiences to be disappointed with partners’ betrayals.
According to my experiences, it is very difficult to find right partners. 10 years ago, very rich Chinese businessman was my big customer. He has had Huamao Foreign Language School and resorts by his foundation, and I heard that he had renovated his firms and businesses. At that time, I suggested that he would adopt my business proposal, and he allowed me to provide with online ESL classes to Huamao Foreign Language High School. It was fantastic. However, failed I in my collaboration business with Chairman Xu because of the technical matters. I think the business had been succeeded in the present techniques.
There are many partners for me nowadays. I want to tell you that the right partner is not the good person. Good people make good works for the human-being, but good people are not good partners. We, business people, need the good partners, so must find the right people. An old proverb says “We can get the world if we have an only one best friend”, but I don’t agree with the proverb. It is better that you have a lot of right partners.
How can you find the right partners? First, you must wait until the partner shows his or her mind in front of you. Second, give the partner good opportunities first, and check up the partner’s reward. Third, show your philosophy and look at his or her face and attitude. Nobody can hide his or her mind and the view of value through the person’s eyes.
For three years, I met wrong partners. Of course, some partners devoted for me, but some partners exploited my human network. After my good and bad experiences, I have the right partners. It is my luck. I believe that I can make the good business opportunity with the right partners.
