Most businesses survive or falter on partnerships...

...and in my experience the quality of that relationship is at the centre of most business success.

My past business reputation was down to the people I employed, the suppliers I maintained and the clients I served.

Even now I can see that how my clients success reflects on my business and the work I do benefits greatly from the work my suppliers do.

So, lets praise them and refer them to others when they do well and support them up when they need it. I have given many companies a first chance to shine because I got help when I started off.

I don't advise going with the lowest price and neither do I believe that the highest price must be giving the best service. My advice is always to ask around people you trust to find someone who has a particular skill.
