Advice is something you really need when you are an entrepreneur. A large part of my working life I have had my own company even when working in a normal job I still had a company next to it. It was and is for me an expression of freedom.
But I have to say freedom comes sometimes at a high price. I think most people who have their own company recognize it when I mention partners. And I am not talking private but business partners. To start something together is often a real thrill. Do we get it all sorted? Can we get the contract? How do we fund it?
In my life I had several business partners. Some are still friends others…well let’s say they are no friends anymore. What strikes me the most is when you have decided to part ways it is most of the times agreed in a good way but afterwards you see bitterness coming in. Or sometimes complete denial when you have left a company. Is it good or is it bad? I personally see it as pain of an entrepreneur which you have to endure to get that feeling of freedom back.
I hear you thinking… and now…have you learned a lesson? Well yes and no. It is always exciting to start a new business and it is very exciting to do this together. I learned my lesson well again in the past decade with changing goals and changing ideas of business partners. But I can also say I found some business freedom an happiness again. I got wise and found myself a lifelong partner and agreed good terms. It is liberating, it is freedom and it us.
Change of business, change of scene, change, sometimes it can feel very good and it gives a relief to change as only then you can see you went the wrong direction.
