This is an excellent article that teaches you how to not only build a business bestie relationship but also how to maintain a successful relationship as well.

WE DIVE DEEP INTO TOPICS

Business besties can’t be shy about the details. Talk about your struggles. Share your wins. Share numbers and details and the lessons you learned. Dive deep into your experiences. These are not relationships where being shy is going to behoove you.

Then listen. Be a really good listener and learn to ask good questions. Help your bestie dive deep, and they’ll do the same for you.

WE ASK FOR AND GIVE EACH OTHER HELP

The best business bestie relationships have a basis of reciprocal assistance. You help each other.

  • Hey, tell me about that new platform your using – should I use it too?
  • What’s your biggest struggle right now?
  • What’s your next step forward?
  • How can I support you?

Use your business bestie relationship to help you move further in your business. Be each others’ sounding board and accountability partner. Brainstorm and plan together.

NOTE: If you’re asking for your business bestie to do time-consuming work that’s based on their expertise, either do an even trade of goods or services (talk to your accountant), or pay them. Business besties don’t just trade tips, sometimes they trade work for money. Don’t burden your relationship by assuming you get work for free.
