Are you entwined?

Would you agree with me if I said that the success of your business is dependent on the success of other companies you have relationships with?

My wife and I own a vertical gardening system where we are growing cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce off our back patio. The other day while picking some of the cucumbers I noticed that the vine had begun digging into our home’s siding. Another vine had wrapped itself around the power cord to the pump that supplies regular watering.

These vines were seeking support and willingly entwining themselves with whatever resources they could find.

It should be no different in business. Your business relationships should be so strong and interlocking that the success of your companies move in kind. Your vines should be able to support one another.

Many entrepreneurs go into business for themselves. What they don’t realize is that, while working for themselves, they are not in business by themselves.
