Let's face it:
There are a ton of challenges with starting a business, especially if you have never done it before.
That's why having a business parnter with complimentary skills can be so helpful. Someone to help you stay focused, bounce ideas off of and ultimately shoulder the load.
However, what happens when that business parntership fails? Can you stay friends? How do you dissolve a business partnership peacefully?
To explore these questions, we talked with Joe Mellin, who use to actually be my original business partner.
We met each other when we were both grad students and then started a company together. That company would eventually become Proven.
We broke up as co-founders a couple years after that. We are still friends to this day.
On today's episode of Small Business War Stories, find out first hand how and why our business partnership came to an end and how we remained friends.
