When I first started I did not think the people mattered that much. Turned out my partner was a jealous egotistical intregitless lying self server. Despite all the ways he screwed me, it was my mistake for deciding to go into business with him.


  • The best lesson I ever learned – do business with people who know right from wrong. Contracts only go so far.

    • That’s right. Lawyers want $10k retainer just to start a lawsuit, no guarantee of wining and even if you do, legal fees could eat it up making the time and emotional toll of a lawsuit simply not worth it.

  • YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I’ve been through similar and I think many other founders have too. Unfortunately it seems this is the only way to learn this lesson. From now on, I will only go into business with people I feel really good about and I will still get a cofounders agreement signed before I do any real work.
