A Tip from Jackie: B-to-B Relationships…a Must for Solos

When I say “hire the help you need,” I do not mean “hire employees.” I mean that your business contracts with another business for provision of services. This is a b-to-b relationship. Business-to-business. When you create that kind of transaction, you become the beloved client not the oppressive boss. When your business hires another business to provide services you have a contract, a clear description of what you are buying and for how much. You have an agreement about scope of work and terms. This type of relationship allows you to devote the majority of your own time to making or doing the work you do for money.
