Had a chance to read his very brief autobiography plus his buddy’s (Warren Buffett) take on partnership and business association. Great insights and ardently yearn to strike one such business partnership. The basis of the partnership is to meet one who has similar tastes, ambitions, wit, intelligence and courage. In this partnership, you can have disagreements but no arguments, never flaunt in your buddy’s actions, decisions and intelligence but be mindful of him investing his money and time for your & his sake. Critical indeed to compound money with compunction for mistakes that do creep in while betting for a cheap and best run company with a long term prospect. Essentially most of your traits that you see in another equally or better gentlemen of similar gentry.
I do have a wish to pursue multi disciplinary activities apart from same professional work monotony. This is important to hone your skills to give that multi-faceted insights into a problem or investment or whatever that requires attention and decision. This pursuit requires a stable income or rather surplus and freedom from working for someone. Hence a business venture as a co-founder that can take off to greatness is a sweet spot to be in. I believe in best of both worlds, cultivate a strong business acumen and render your services to good offices of the neighborhood, society, nation and international diaspora.
Occurrence of such association is random and do happen for good, providence has it’s own ways in establishing them or not but hopes are something we should never lose.
