Mike Janda & Tom Ross // How to Collaborate

Episode 355. Aired August 26, 2020.

Can you imagine COVID without the internet?

WHOA that is like a horror movie. Let’s move on, can’t even think about that.

But you know why this all matters with what we are talking about this week?

It is because this week is about collaborating. I love collaborating but I have a lot of questions about finding the right project to collaborate on, and finding the right person to collaborate with.

Who better to ask then two fellas who did just that. Asked people to do a project with them.

Have you wanted to collaborate? Do you understand the advantages of collaboration?

What really is the difference in collaboration and delegation? Can you have one without the other?

I am excited to have my friends Mike Janda and Tom Ross on the show. We are going to be talking about collaboration. How do you find a good partner to collaborate with? Who makes a good partner? What are red flags to watch out for? What kinds of projects make great collaboration projects? Should you have an operating agreement for collaboration. I can’t wait to see you at this LIVE Design Recharge.
