My cofounder and I have been working together for about 2 months. She is a close friend and prior to me bringing her on as a partner, she never expressed interest in starting a business but I think seeing me make progress woke up her entrepreneurial spirit.
So we’ve been working together but I found out through a mutual friend that my cofounder has been planning to start an Event Planning biz (it’s non-conflicting with our company). When I confronted her she got incredibly defensive and said it was just gonna be a side business and nothing has been started yet. She said she didn’t tell me because she didn’t think it mattered.
Not sure what to make of if it, but my instincts are going with ‘shady’. Am I wrong?
