"For a large part of the last decade I've managed my own joint venture relationships and strategic partnerships. It was a pain. But it was an even bigger pain to outsource my strategic partnerships to a capable affiliate manager. After several failed attempts at putting my business and reputation into the hands of lazy and irresponsible wannabes, I lost hope and stopped looking. Then, by sheer coincidence I heard Michelle, who I knew by dealing with a long time joint venture partner who has extremely high quality standards, is taking on clients. I pounced on the opportunity to work with her immediately. It's now been 6 months since we started and she has proven to be invaluable to the success of our recent offer. Best part, I keep getting complements for hiring her from my new joint venture partners!"
