Throughout the past few years I’ve had the pleasure of being able to work with multi-talented people from all over the world, from the UK to America to Canada to South Africa and beyond. These people from all different walks of life with different skills sets have taught me a lot about business & life in general however what I’ve learnt that I think is the most important is how to manage online projects successfully.
It’s not easy when time zones don’t match up or when an issue arises and the other person isn’t available for a face to face talk. The energy you feel when you’re in a room full of people who are all passionate about an idea is not there and when it comes to motivating yourself to put your head down and get shit done, some of the time it’s tough to do without your partner egging you on which is why I think a lot of remote based partnerships fail. Today I want to talk briefly about my personal experience working with individuals from different countries, what to avoid and how to make the partnership successful.
