Connecting people is extremely rewarding, especially when the two parties are good people. As an observer, you might be able to discern the possibilities that neither party could from their respective points of view. Sometimes it takes a third party. It’s better when it’s a third party that cares about the outcome of the newly formed relationship. It’s ideal when it’s a third party that isn’t concerned about being involved.
I had lunch with two great people today and suggested a partnership for them that could potentially work out for everyone. It’s interesting that neither one thought of the possibility. Now the seed has been planted. Hopefully, they continue to discuss the potential. I am a big fan of each of them and would be their biggest cheerleader if they join forces. The joy of connecting people is real.
