Finding the perfect middleman in a business is like finding the right mate to spend the rest of your life with or the right house help especially when it is a live-in house help. It can take a lot of time and trust to understand your mate- a few test runs have to be made and sustaining the relationship takes honest commitment from both parties. This is the kind of person you have to be totally open with when it comes to your expectations because the more you hide what you feel or not being happy with the services the longer you prolong your hurt and eventual break up. I find this especially true when getting into a business venture while working with someone from different parts of the globe, not only can e-mailing be misunderstood, but can talking the phone. Tradition, cultural differences and accents can come into play.
