you need to catapult a concept
from good to great!
Partnering works best if ideals
and work ethics are similar.
Having diverse skill sets that
compliment each other
are also a big plus.
For example, your
marketing ideas are genius
and she's a social media guru!

Quality control during growth is
crucial, so remember....you're
only as trustworthy as your partner.
and clear communication
are the keys to maintaining trust
and staying on track.
A TALE OF TWO BIDDIES
Living in a rural area, we have a wide variety of wild critters visiting our property. They include birds, chipmunks, groundhogs, foxes, deer, coyotes and even a black bear! Some are more evident than others and this Spring, we noticed an increase in wild turkeys. They make their rounds every morning and again around dusk, partaking of the bird seed we supply as well as foraging for bugs and other tasty morsels.
Flocks of turkey hens visit with a few toms making an appearance - fanning their tail feathers, flaring their wings and puffing their chests to impress the ladies.
There is one special hen that has caught our attention and captured our hearts. Her legs and claws are deformed, so she walks on the knuckles of her feet. The daily routine of feeding herself and keeping up with the others is difficult. Her curved feet are obviously painful to walk on and she often uses her wings and tail feathers to balance herself as she feeds.
Ron and I have grown very fond and protective of "Our Girl."
Despite her extreme handicaps, Our Girl makes the arduous trek to feed in our yard, often squatting for long stretches of time to rest her exhausted legs. Although she can fly like the wind, she is extremely vulnerable to predators while earthbound.
Mother Nature has an amazing way of adapting and providing. One of the other hens has taken on the role of buddy and protector. She faithfully accompanies Our Girl and even after straying to other parts of the yard to feed on juicier tidbits, she always circles back around. While Our Girl takes extra time to feed or rest, her buddy risks her own life, yet never leaves Our Girl.
