Relationships are everything in business. Successful CEOs often thank their partners-;that network of outside supporters including investors, mentors, business partners, and even the local community. They’re essential for successful businesses.

Alan Gannett, CEO of TrackMaven, a marketing analytics company, explained how the recent loss of a mentoring board member showed him that “the people I surround myself with are the single most valuable resource in my life, personally and professionally.” He added, “The first step in growing a successful business is building that network of great people.” 

Partnerships not only provide you with critical peer feedback, they can also present opportunities for business development. Do you have a network of partnerships you can fall back on or go to for insight? Are you building relationships that will lead to business opportunities? How are you involved in your community?
