On this episode we talk with Jason Blumer the founder of Thriveal and the topic is the power of collaborating. In this episode Jason explains why we need to focus on our strengths and focus on finding others who have strengths where we are weak and when you blend those things together it results in the fasted growing organizations and the healthiest businesses. You can get things done easier, faster, and better. You can collaborate, too, when you’re a solo practitioner so you don’t need to have a business partner necessarily. You can collaborate with others through an outreach plan where you reach out to complimentary competitors and your network. You can even take collaboration to the point where your employees, vendors, and people throughout the organization are all working collectively to leverage each other’s strengths to grow faster, better, and healthier than ever before. Welcome to episode 80 of the Grow My Accounting Practice.
