Why I Don’t Have A Business Partner Anymore


Published -

How do you find a good business partner?

What should you consider when making a formal business partnership? What are the pros and cons of having business partners?

In this episode, Chris is at the AIGA design conference answering questions during an intimate roundtable discussion.

One gentleman asks Chris about starting a formal business partnership with an associate and Chris discusses his experiences with working with partners in the past. There are pros and cons to be aware of because, like personal relationships, you should be careful before making a big commitment.

What are some of the potential benefits of having a business partner?

As a successful entrepreneur, the decision to have or not to have a business partner can have a significant impact on the growth and success of your business. After careful consideration and several years of experience, I came to the conclusion that having a business partner was no longer the best option for my company.

Initially, having a business partner seemed like a great idea, as we were able to combine our strengths, skills and resources to create something amazing. However, after a few years of working together, we found that our visions were no longer aligned, and we had different ideas about the direction of our company. Our priorities had changed, and we could no longer work well together.

Furthermore, having a business partner also means dividing profits, responsibilities and decision-making power. This can lead to disagreements and conflicts on key business decisions, which can ultimately impact the success of the company. While it is possible to resolve these conflicts, it can be time-consuming and take away valuable resources from the business.

Being a solo entrepreneur allows me to have complete control over my business, without the added pressure of managing someone else’s vision and expectations. I can make decisions quickly and efficiently, without the need for multiple conversations and approval processes. This level of autonomy has allowed me to focus solely on the growth and development of my business.

Additionally, having a business partner can also result in challenges when it comes to finding the right person. Finding someone with similar values, work ethic and passion for the company can be a daunting task, and the process of finding a suitable business partner can take a lot of time and resources.

In conclusion, while having a business partner may have its benefits, it is not always the best decision for every entrepreneur. After evaluating the pros and cons, I decided that being a solo entrepreneur was the best path for me and my business. It provides me with the freedom and autonomy to make decisions quickly, without the added pressure of managing someone else’s expectations. Ultimately, it is up to each entrepreneur to decide what is best for their individual goals and aspirations.
