Tag Team Your Vision?

Visions germinate from awe inspiring moments.  We ask, "Wouldn't it be great if..."

"Yes, that would be great," we  answer back.

Some years ago, I wanted  to help downward transition neighborhoods to increase the market value of homeowner properties.    At the same time, I knew three bankers who had that very thought in mind.  With my background in community development block grant programs and their network in the financial industry; we found that we had a match.  We formed an ideal consultant firm to advance our vision forward.

Separately, making sense of the other's maze would have taken an elaborate amount of time and leg work.  Collectively, the four of us advanced our vision through both resources quickly, with greater confidence, and whose results rewarded us with a nice profit.

This is just one example of  how  tag-teaming with another visionary's goal can be.  Sears started out as Sears Roebuck & Company, recall?  American economic history is saturated with conglomerate bodies who prosper vastly once they see the  benefits that someone else can bring to their marketing table.

As with any marriage, teams who wish to tag each other's vision need do so with reflection.  Primary questions to ask:

  • Does it make sense?
  • Are background checks adequate to convert the proposal into marriage?
  • Will burdens  lighten and profits be increased  for all parties?
  • Are you compatible, can you work together covering the other's missing-part-of-the-puzzle?
  • Do you have legal and Certified Public Administration services in place to render the tag team well-founded? 

Tag teaming may or may not be your next move. Like any marriage,  it is a serious decision.  However, should you find The Right One--well, there you go!
