Business Lessons From The Olympics - Work With The Competition
I’ve been enjoying watching the Olympics. Of course, each individual athlete wants to win, but outside the sports arena, the athletes are often good friends with some of their competitors. They even help each other as long as it doesn’t jeopardize their own chances.
The cycling is a good example of this. Cyclists on long road races often take turns to sit in each other’s slipstream to give them a rest. Athletes train with coaches from other countries or play sport for them in non Olympic times.
How can you collaborate with your competition or partner with complementary businesses to benefit both your businesses?
Two restaurants using a double sided business card, (one side for each business) is just one example. Any others?Tags: Beijing Olympics, business lessons olympics, home-+-biz-+-notes, home-business, partnering with other businesses, yvonne russell
