If you’re a solopreneur, chances are you’ve fantasized about finding a partner who would take on all the challenges of running a business. For these lucky pairs, the fantasy became a reality. In part one of this two part series we talk to Jessica Geller and Virginia Toledo about how they make it work and how you might find a partner of your own. In this episode we learn: - consider placing an ad to enlist help in your design firm, if it’s a great fit, then you can talk partnership - when the economy slows, it’s important to reassess who your clients are and appeal directly to them - you don’t necessarily want to choose a friend or family member as a partner - vet carefully anyone you want to introduce into your business; hire them on a project basis first - assign specific tasks to each partner, look for complementary skills - if there is an issue with your partner, deal with it directly - consider a non-designer as a partner, perhaps a contractor, builder, architect or landscaper It’s time to take control of your business.
