When you're doing your best to grow a business, surround yourself with people who will not let you fail.

In any sort of enterprise, project, collaboration - you need people to help you. You can't do it alone.

You know this.

The idea that you can't success without the help of others is so familiar - it's a cliche.

I first came across the phrase "people who won't let you fail" within the SOBCon community on line in 2012. (Read fine blogpost by Steph Montreuil)

It shook me.

"Who are the people I will not let fail?"

I realised my list was tiny. I couldn't be there for everyone. The people I will not let fail are few.

It's hard enough trying to prevent myself failing. The amount of energy I have in my tank for "people I will not let fail" in limited.

(No omnipotent fantasy please.)

Growing your business is great.
It's satisfying. It's a challenge that develops & realises your potential. It's your legacy.

You need marketing skills to compete for affection, desire & sales. You need more meaningful marketing to make an impact in the crowded marketplace.

But you need more than skills. If you surround yourself with people who won't let you fail - you have a much better chance.

Here's your job today :

Make two lists :

(1) People I will not let fail

(2) People who will not let me fail

After you've compiled both lists - you'll feel a whole lot better.

That's great work for a Saturday (when it's raining in Cork).
