I had the exact same situation

http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=112342
READ my thread from seven years ago
Same situation
-worked for a friend
-used my own truck and money to get his business going.
-at one point he owed me 15k
-friendship was my top priority ( i was dum)
-I grew his business to over 150 clients.
-I went weeks without pay or less pay
-My bills were late,his bills were on time
-I paid interest on loans,he paid off loans.
Conclusion:
-Stopped working for him
-money was tight
-it took him five years to pay me back
-any other job was better than working for free
Current situation:
-I figured if I can run his business and make him in a better situation,why not do it for myself
-I have a profitable business now
-my employee gets paid before I make my own mortgage payment
-My business outgrew my friend's business
-my friend's employees are complaining about work with no pay
THE IRONY is me and that guy are still friends.
NEVER MIX FRIENDSHIP WITH WORK.
NEVER NEVER NEVER PARTNER WITH NO ONE
