MBA1940 Q&A Wednesday: How to Approach Partnerships With No Evidence of Success

When you have no reputation, why should anyone trust you?

It’s the age-old challenge for a brand-new business. And it’s especially problematic for one of our listeners. 

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and this listener has a business that depends heavily on partnerships with other companies. Unfortunately, this fledgling business has no track record they can use to prove their value to potential partners.

It only takes one mistake to change your life — or someone else’s — forever. You’re out with friends. You’re putting back a few drinks. A few becomes a few too many. It’s time to go, and for a moment you think of calling for a ride. You tell yourself you’re a good driver, you live nearby, you can make it home ok. What’s the worst that could happen? You get pulled over? Lose your license? Lose your job? Total your car? Kill someone? Play it safe and plan ahead to get a ride. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
