In the business landscape, our companies are rather like children. We do a lot to take care of them, and though it can be challenging, exhausting, and complicated, we enjoy every minute of it. We make sure our companies are healthy and strong. We make sure our companies have "friends" to rely on and cooperate with. We make sure our companies get along with all of the other companies (most of the time, anyway). Luckily, good companies have a lot of people looking out for them, so they can grow up with all of the support and wisdom they need to become successful.
