received was not to have partners. This came from the seller, my accountant, and my attorney. 14 years later, they were right hands down. This is a marathon, not a sprint. So it takes a few years more to grow - but it is all yours.

Lot's of disastrous things come with partners - even good ones. Someone could get divorced and the ex-spouse gets half of her business share, and then marries a psycho communist who wants to milk her share. Or, even more likely, after 5 years, you guys just have different objectives and the business becomes strained.

Unless you need it to survive, go on your own.
