I wanted to get a discussion going on the Pros and Cons of Business Partners and Co-Founders. I have been involved in many businesses with partners, and some without. These are just a few off of the top of my head. I'm curious what you guys can come up with. Pros: Motivation, inspiration and someone to help keep you "driven" Split costs Have different areas of expertise (teamwork) Divide responsibilities Less time commitment, depending on responsibilties Cons: It doesn't go as planned and they don't put in the time, or money that you do It can cost you 50% Power trips/power struggle They make a big mistake that costs you You don't see eye to eye on all issues What are some other Pros and Cons?
