Shortly after I published my book "Uncensored Truth About Money", I was invited as a speaker in business networking dinner with about thirty entrepreneurs/business owners. I shared our life journey and of course I focused on certain factors that impacted our life and I gave major credits to my wife Olivia. I told the audience that I would not be on the platform if my wife was not supportive and encouraging through our ups and downs, especially during crisis.
So, chose your life partner carefully. Your partner can make or break you. It is true. I have seen a lot of marriages that are destroyed. In many cases the major issue was money. For some marriages the issue was the lack of money. For some, believe it or not, too much money, and these are the cases where a partner cheats and stuff like that.
So, one of the main factors for the success in my life is my wife, Olivia.
The most important factor though is God. Yes, God. There is the spiritual side of life that many are not aware of. I am not talking about a vague religious concept of God and believing that there is God. I am talking about a relationship with God and applying His principles in life. I wrote a lot about this relationship in my book "Uncensored truth about money" and the subtitle of the book is "From the curse of poverty to the promise of prosperity". Why did I use strong words like "curse"? Because it is true. We were not aware of the curse for many years and we suffered a lot financially. But once we realized that the financial curse was active and God has provided in His Word the way to stop the curse through His powerful principles, our life turned around.
So, during the same dinner event, someone raised his hand to ask a question and it was interesting. The guys asked, besides God and your wife, what other factors contributed to your success in business. I paused for a while and answered him, strategic partnerships. We are living in a world that is so dynamic. We cannot be doing business in a traditional way. Traditional methods of running a business are too slow. So we realized, for us to be at the top of the game, we need strategic partners. We cannot be good at everything. But when a few parties comes together and put their strengths to work as a team, wonders can happen. We are blessed to work with great strategic partners.
Did you notice that actually all the three factors that I mentioned are about partnerships. Partner with God, partner with my wife and strategic business partners. I trust that you will consider seriously who do you partner with. All the best to your success.
