Louise discusses how she would determine when a partnership was successful
Well I measure impact in a few ways. And I – this is part of what I teach also at the boot camp … how do you know you’ve had a successful partnership? Well one is you actually stay for the whole project. If your partner’s actually stick and stay for the whole project something good happened there. If you’re wanting to work together again. That to me is a good partnership. And then I mean outside of that, that’s sort of internal validation, then you want some external validation, so I think if other people, if word gets around, you know, work with these people. They’re cool, then that to me is kind of also an impact that you’ll have in the longer term. You know, do people say, is it part of the buzz you know that, oh, they’re cool to work with and they understand this stuff.
