The reason we make this work is because in today's society the world we live in is so virtual. People all over the world conduct meetings virtually either by conference calls or Skype (or another video program). The need to meet in person is no longer necessary in the business world. This is how successful global partnerships work all over the world.
Therefore, I found this infograph (which are becoming more popular also) on the benefits of having a virtual partnership and other information related to having a virtual partnership. I've found it successful in my work with the students in Texas and want to share with everyone that it is possible to enter into this new business world.
