Opposites Attract.. At Least In Entrepreneurship

I recently read an interesting article on The Daily Grindstone about how entrepreneurs should look to partner with those who are their opposites when founding a business. We often hear that opposites attract in romantic relationships (which I don’t think is true, but that’s another story..), but not so much in the business world. Wouldn’t it be more beneficial to partner with someone who mirrors your working style?

Look no further that this blog for proof that working with someone different from yourself can be beneficial. While I am generally quieter, more sensitive, and tend to think creatively, Shikole is not at all afraid to speak her mind, is excellent at networking, and is always the life of the party (those who know her can attest to this fact).  These personality traits do not make us complete opposites, but I do see them come out in our writing style and the way we run this little blog. We balance each other out, and since we share the common goal to make this blog the best it can be, we virtually never step on each other’s toes.

I would definitely suggest checking out the article if you and a friend are considering starting a business, or even blog, together.
