I used to think you make your own success; your drive, hard work, making your own luck. That you can be ‘self-made’
I was wrong. Very wrong
You can not do everything. You can’t be everywhere. You can’t correct all your faults. No one can
You need great people. Great friends. A great team. An extended network. Smart advisors & partners. Support & community
A B team beats an A player every time. A team of A players can carry you to great heights & you can achieve miracles & mastery with a great team that you lead/inspire or at least find your own part to play & value to add within it
My business partner Mark Homer just saved me £27,700 on ONE insurance quote yesterday. He has helped save us millions in wasted expenses.
He has taught me to manage money better than I ever knew. He has grounded me when I needed a slap, and taken off the reigns when he knows to let me run with it.
He made sacrifices and decisions that self negate for the good of the long term, the businesses, community & our partnership. The power of just one amazing partner is not 2x or even 10x, it’s almost infinite
I’m an accident that would have happened long ago without Mark, the greatest business partner that ever lived, the right match for me, and taken in case you try to nick him.
Here’s to ten great years & another 60 more, my business partner and best friend
