As Americans, our business relationships tend to be distinctly divided between our work associations and our personal friends. Americans believe that it’s best to hold mutually beneficial partnerships instead of close friendships when it comes to building rapport and relationships with other important individuals. Dinner, golfing, and networking events are all ways in which businessmen can network and build partnerships. Most o the time these relationships never leave their work-life. Americans build walls within their lives to segment their relationships into different sections. In Latin America, the lines of business and personal relationships is blurred.
