Are you considering going into a business partnership? It is imperative that you count the cost first.
In order for a startup to thrive, certain prerequisite skills and resources must be in the picture. Most times, it is difficult for just one individual to have all these skills and resources. This is why business partnership is important. So, having someone to start a business with you in partnership is a blessing because you get to pool resources (both tangible and intangible) to make the business start faster and grow faster.
