When venturing into entrepreneurship, it is important to recognize the value of relationships. The ability to forge meaningful connections at opportune moments can unlock opportunities that surpass our initial visions. This becomes especially true when contemplating the launch of a small business since these connections have the potential to foster strategic alliances that can propel your venture to heights you may not have even dared to dream of.

Entrepreneurship is not a solitary journey but a collaborative endeavor that thrives on the power of relationships. The individuals you meet, network with, and form alliances with can become instrumental in the success of your business. They can offer guidance and support, opening doors to resources, partnerships, and mentorship that can significantly impact your entrepreneurial journey.

On the latest episode of Private Practices in Maine, Michael spoke with Michael Royer, MST, CPA, about why he left a Fortune 100 to pursue entrepreneurship in Maine. You’ll hear:

  • Leaving a Fortune 100 company to become an entrepreneur changed Michael’s life forever. He wanted his work to matter, and it didn’t at the Fortune 100 company.
  • The power and value of strong connections with clients and business partners and how it impacts the ability of a business to provide comprehensive services 
  • Michael began working in the dental industry when he hired a young woman who worked for another accounting firm that worked with dental practices. She brought some of those dental practice relationships with her, which created a network his business could further capitalize on.

One thing is for sure: If you’re an entrepreneur, every relationship can have greater value down the road than it does at that moment.
