I chose to collaborate as a path to create my dream job.
I didn’t want to make this journey all alone.
I desired friends and collegaues to struggle the struggles and highs of entrepreneurship. At Caroline & Rusty’s wedding last May. I was blessed with the opportunity to work with a nothing short of amazing planner. Her name is Shelley of Events with Shelley.
I admired her work ethic and pleasant demeanor. Just like that feeling you get in grade school I wanted her to be my friend.
Reasons I chose to collaborate with other vendors to build my dream business,
- It connects me to other professionals. Since I work from home it is important to build relationships and network. It prevents feeling isolated.
- It gets me out of the house. Meeting with other is something I look forward to each week. It is a highlight of my work week.
- Change of environment. Meeting for coffee or to work on projects in a visualing appeal environment is way to keep those creative flowing.
- Two heads are better than one. I value the judgement and opinion of industry professionals. Their insights and knowledge is a valuable resource.
