When you are considering a partnership or partnerships, what do you look for? Do you have any requirements that are must haves? Have you had failed partnerships? Are there any red flags that you know to stay away from? Have you ever asked someone to sign a no-compete before you would work with them and reveal you awesome idea? My closest partnership is working with authors to create their children's books and it's very hard to get them to sign anything. I take it as a red flag if they won't commit to the business exchange if they won't agree to share royalties or credit or a no-compete. I had one when I first started who took my black and white sketches to another artist who was willing to do the same work for only $500 and no royalties. It was a legal mess. Now I don't sketch until they've signed an agreement. So I was wonder about your experiences? Have you been burned or has it been mostly successful?
