Ever since I started my own business, I have always been aware of the importance of collaboration. There is no ‘i’ in team after all!
There are a few local businesses we work collaboratively with. Some of you may recognise one of Halesworth’s long standing business owners, Alex. He runs the wine shop in the Market Place.
He very kindly lets me put my Bounce Magazine stand outside his shop for people to collect, and in return I give him a small advert in the magazine. We both benefit from the arrangement, plus it makes for a positive working relationship.
I think if more people supported each other in business, we would all get ahead. Try it and see what kind of results you get. I am really keen to work in this way, so if you have any propositions, i’d be happy to hear from you. Get in touch with me here.
