Givers and Takers – Part 2

I received some interesting responses to my Givers and Takers posting, and, as always, I appreciate them all. Every day we are confronted with choices, and giving or taking plays an important role in all our decision making. Over the past month, I have been involved directly and indirectly in two dramatic episodes impacting the fate of a couple of the several partnerships that we’ve been building. It has been a telling manifestation of giving and taking. And I can’t tell you how much I appreciate our good fortune, especially when it is challenged.
On the one hand there was our elation over the remarkable sale of our FedCloud initiative, Autonomic Resources [http://tonywalkerpost.com/2015/02/21/now-that-was-a-ride/], and, on the other hand, there was the contraction of our Consilium One partnership [which, unfortunately had to rely on the protection of the bankruptcy court]. For all of us who are involved in our G8 Partnerships, the good has always significantly outweighed the occasional embarrassment.
And now, propelled by the successful sale of Autonomic Resources, we will be venturing forth with the Advantage Business Exchange, FedDROP, and Cloud 9 Resources, our three new ventures that will build on all our past and current successes [while always learning from our intermittent missteps]. These three new partnerships will join an incredible lineup of resources that include our Capax Global and AP Professionals partnerships [not to mention all of the resources of the Advantage Co]. The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades. Thanks for being a part of it.
