Hard times is when you see what people are made of.
You can spot your weaknesses, and you can the flaws & strengths of others.
That’s the best way to find partners.
Notice your own weaknesses and look for people that complement you.
And see people for who they truly are, so you don’t choose folks that buckle when the chips are down.
Choosing your partners is the most important ingredient for success.
That’s why hard times are the best of times.
