- If you want something done right, you do it yourself, and
- Too many cooks spoil the broth
However, we seldom see that entrepreneurs also have partners whom they can rely on and trust. Entrepreneurs know their weaknesses and their limitations. They seek people who can back them up. They seek individuals who can provide the expertise that they don't have.
How do they do this? An entrepreneur's mind works differently. In my previous blog, I mentioned that entrepreneurs are people or persons who add value to something. It is natural for them to seek out people who can strengthen them and provide them the needed lift to get to their vision.

In GreenRides, my partner and I have agreed to take on certain roles. She is primarily handling the admin and finance side and I am handling business development and product expansion. Although we both handle marketing, we have agreed to debate, consult and support one another. There may be shouting matches at times regarding some ideas we want to try and implement, in the end, we always know and have agreed that we just want the company to expand and grow.
For those things that we don't know anything about, we have agreed that it would be best to outsource certain tasks. Once we decided to do this, we can focus on what we are good at.
For those who want to venture on their own, I suggest you seek a partner that will complement and complete your skills. If you decide to make on your own, the probability of failure is much larger. Even Donald Trump had some help in constructing his famous buildings!
