Holding Up Your End

If you want to survive in business, you have to hold up your end. You only exist inside any company to do a job. If you don't, you get fired or go bankrupt. If you do your job, you make money.

Now, that's never just a one way relationship. I mean, all the responsibility isn't one way. Your employers must provide you with the tools you need to do the job. Some training would be nice, too. My point is that in any business relationship, both sides have responsibilities and obligations.

As an employee, it's a simple matter. As a consultant, it gets a bit more difficult.

As a consultant, I need you to hold up your end of the bargain too. It isn't entirely a one way relationship. I can do my job much better when you hold up your end. In my case, it's little things, like paying your phone bill so your internet doesn't shut off or not ignoring my emails about your expiring domain names.

With both of us holding up our ends of the bargain, it's amazing how much easier everything can be. It's not my policy to pester you or drive you crazy with TechnoGeek. I will only email you if it's important. I promise. And you need to pay your telco bills.

But everything is much easier and less painful when you do your part. I will hold up my end of the bargain. I need you to do the same. And then we can both make money!
