How many of us know a good partner when we see one? What Makes a Good Business Partner?

A friend once asked me to partner with him. I just said "Why don't you just take all my money, punch me in the face and never talk to me again. It'll save us the trouble of going through a partnership."

LOL, yeah, that's a partnership for ya!

Pretty similar to what it's like hiring friends too!

I agree, My brother needed some extra money so I brought him on some gutter cleaning jobs. They only take a hour so I never need help. After doing a few he proposed I get jobs, let him use my equipment and trucks, he'll do the work and split the money. Wow what a offer. When I can just show up and make all of it.

What's your view on why partnering just doesn't work out too well more often than not? Is it just that everyone wants to be a boss or is it more that there isn't enough experience for someone to really fulfill the role of the boss? Or maybe something else?

It's a lot cheaper and a lot less headaches to just hire help if needed. Not so easy to get rid of a partner if things don't work out. Not to mention you have to work twice as hard yourself when it's an equal partnership to make the same $$$.
