We Can Do More Together Than We Can Do Alone

March 1, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

I recently attended Heroic Public Speaking (, hosted by Michael Port. The conference focused on speaking, but there was a lot of discussion of business. The business of speaking, but also the business of business.

Michael Port’s President, Walt Hampton (, talked about the business of speaking being the business of business. Speaking businesses aren’t that much different than other business. What was interesting is a common theme in the conference, and a common quote was, “We can do more together than we can do alone.” Think about that.

I find that to be so true. When I’m talking about The Three Laws of Empowerment ( I’m often talking about making plans, preparing yourself and protecting yourself for greatness. One of the common things I talk about is building a team so that you can do what you’re great at and they can help you, so they can show you the blind spots, and so that you’re not reinventing the wheel.

It’s the same theme. You can do more with others. You can do more as part of the team. You can do more as part of something bigger than you.

What’s been your experience with utilizing others? How is that gone? Have you let others help you? Where could you use help? Discuss with us in the comments below.
