In 2002, my Strategic Management professor described synergy as a practical operating space where 1+1=3. This interpretation has re-shaped my thinking into accepting that one of the most important roles that any business advisor, entrepreneur, parent, sibling and in fact individual can hold is that of supporter. When you become a supporter of an entity's goals you are inspired to accept the inter-dependent nature of the relationship and life itself. You accept that creating value for the entity can only be achieved at a superior level if every member uses his or her talents to the best. Since 1990, I have provided business advisory services to some 80 entities and am proud to say that it has not always been a smooth journey but the dis-ease and pain combined with the joy and pride have made this synergistic entrepreneurship lifestyle rewarding.
