My brother had the idea of creating a greeting card company and now he wants me to help him. I’m not sure why he wants my help. My brother has always been the one in the family with the most business sense, so anything I could offer him would be minimal at best. He didn’t see it the same way that I did, and said that I could be a great asset in helping him get an office for the company. All I have to do is use my skills of persuasion to get a good office rental deal.
I’m not sure where he got the idea that I have any persuasive skills, but I agreed to help him anyway. My brother and I haven’t been living in Singapore very long, and only knew about a few companies that had offices for rent. Fortunately for us, we did have a lot of friends, and a lot of those friends had business contacts that were very knowledgeable about offices that were available for rent. Through our long network of friends and friends of friends and a little bit of negotiating on my part, we were able to find a place that had offices for rent at an affordable price.
My brother has been renting his office space for about a year and a half now and his business seems to be thriving. He and his team makes some really good greeting cards, all with a nice personal flair. I really don’t think I did that much to help my brother create his business, but he really thinks I play a crucial part in its success. He says that I didn’t help him find the office, his business would have no where to make greeting cards. I guess he does have a point.
