Jobs and Wozniak, Hewlett and Packard, Ben & Jerry, Walt & Disney… there’s a reason these famous business partnerships resonate with us. These companies were found together by friends.
We have heard stories of friends who suddenly had the eureka moment and started a business plan.
With Friendship Day coming up this Sunday, we at Crazy Hippos will tell you what’s unique about having a friend as a business partner.
#1 YOUR OFFICE.. YOUR RULES
Working with friends is always fun. So many inside jokes, laughters, pulling each others legs and what not. The whole process of running a business becomes more easier. When one is down and feels stressed, the other is always there to brighten them up.
#2 YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR EACH OTHER
Every friendship is built on the foundation of trust. This in turn allows you in building and growing your business. Making decisions during legal matters becomes easier, since you bhoth have known each other forever. In the earlier stages of the business, it is very important to not doubt the other person and stay united. When the friendship is already on top gear, all problems will take a back seat.
#3 KNOWING EACH OTHER IN AND OUT
The best part about starting a business with your friend is you know each other’s weaknesses. We know what the other person is better at and their hidden talents. It becomes easier to unleash the talents and superpowers in them .
Often successful business partners are those, who complement each other’s weaknesses and strengths. The greatest example is that of Walt and Disney. While Walt was a creative person, Disney was a sensible financier. What’s more better than having a co-founder who loves doing what you are hate… and even better if he is your BEST FRIEND!
When you are friends, you understand each other — both your similar values and your different preferences. By understanding your differences, you never step on your co-founders’ toes. In fact, you will always be incredibly relieved when your friend happily steps up to tackle the tasks which you are dreading.
#4 PILLAR OF SUPPORT
A “friend is need is a friend indeed” holds true even in the business aspect of life. You know that you are not facing a problem alone when your friend is the co-founder. You believe that together you can find the precise solution for every problem being shooted upon you. Having a friend by your side provides stability and also gives many emotional moments which are later turned into funny events to narrate to your family & friends.
#5 TOGETHER WE CAN FIND A SOLUTION FOR EVERYTHING
Being friends for at least a few years, you would have already solved plenty of problems together. Though the process of finding a solution for the problems may be tireful and annoying, you know that you can do it because you have faced even worse scenarios in the past.
So what are you waiting for? Call up your friends and start thinking if you should start a business together this friendship’s day. HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY FOLKS!
