Establishing a business with a partner (or partners) may seem like a great idea on paper. Typically, like-minded individuals come together and their combined strengths seemingly set up operations for success right out of the gates. In some cases, this is exactly how things unfold. In others, however, certain negative traits once unseen in your partners can quickly rise to the surface, making progress and growth more difficult.
In other words, think wisely and know EVERYTHING you can about those you look to partner with.
In Episode 7 of The Business Equation Podcast, Nick Bogacz goes back in time to bring you the story of his original partnership at Caliente Pizza & Draft House and how quickly things unraveled.
