In this episode of “The Seed,” I shared my experiences of collaboration and partnership in the business world. I highlighted the importance of reciprocity in such relationships and reflected on past encounters where this principle was lacking. I discussed a positive meeting with Deon Stubbs, emphasizing the alignment of our missions despite gender differences. I contrasted this with a negative interaction that left me feeling disheartened due to a competitive approach. Through self-reflection, I acknowledged the need for mutual respect and giving in successful collaborations. Overall, I emphasized the power of influence, the value of connecting with like-minded individuals, and the importance of maintaining a positive mindset in business interactions.
