How to go it alone

At least two of my entrepreneurial ventures started as partnerships with other people. The first time that happened was with my first business and it was because I just couldn’t imagine starting a business on my own. I didn’t think I could have everything I possibly needed to start a successful business. What I was overlooking was the fact that I am strong, stubborn, really wanted my own business and never shirked from hard work to make something I wanted happen.

Looking back, those qualities are all the reasons I should never have started a business with someone! I found myself spending time trying to convince the other person to do it my way, and after time I realized it’s easier for everyone if I became a solo entrepreneur passionate about a vision, rather than half of a partnership experiencing conflict with direction.
