Sometimes we take on partners out of need. We need their expertise, we need their resources etc. Sometimes we are even willing to settle for bad partners who can bring value to the group.
At least in my experience when we bring on bad partners it NEVER WORKS OUT. While they might bring some value to the group, the negatives always seem to end up more than offsetting the positives.
Just something to think about when looking at partners.
Have a great day!
