I wouldn’t take on a partner for any reason. In any business. I know I would go to prison for homicide. And I am pretty non-violent. This little account gives one example why I feel in this manner.
My brother in law was a half partner in a successful automotive repair shop. Fairly good size operation. He is a hayseed and didn’t like the rush. But, he was the glue(mechanic)that held the real key to the business. He and his partner were best freinds.
My brother in law was a elder at our church. He had put his “rough and rowdy past behind him”.
Until the pressure of the business and his partner’s greed reared their ugly head.
Then my church elder/Brother in law, beat up his partner and was about ready to choke him when he came to his senses.
He sold his half. Moved back to the country and set up shop in his hometown of 1,000 people, and repented of his actions. He is ok now. His partner got control of the business, a few minor abrasions, and a badly chafed neck…and is still having ulcers over the business. At least he isn’t dead though.
