Go out and go by your self. You can take whatever jobs you want, you can turn what you don't down. If you wanna get bigger you can. Its just overall easier. When you are alone and want a new piece of equipment you can just go get it, if you have a partner then you have to split it and ask if they want it too. Just an overall bad idea. Get a helper instead. if ya smell what i'm cookin.

So far its been alright for my partner and I, but im pretty sure that next year ill go solo and just have him as my employee. There are just too many situations where i want the final say and to have control without being a jerk, or situations where i feel like he isnt doing enough.

I you both have a hard work ethic...both agree on pricing..and both want a successful business in which "you can make stacks" and your both highly skilled in all landscaping areas..

then there is no reason why the both of you cant run there own successful companies..

it only ends one way.. crash and burn!!! If i want to take off tuesday to rock with my family.. i really dont want to hear **** from someone that knows less about grass then me lol

And this is where it will get ugly. He will want you to buy him out for a ridiculous price and he will never work as hard for you as when he had a vested interest in the business. Splitting a partnership is worse than getting a divorce.

every one and i mean every one strongly agrees on this, so that must mean something. I think i will follow all y'all advice on this. It just sound so fun to be partners and work together.

Ever wonder why companies have one CEO, one President, one Chairman? Kingdoms only had one King. Get the idea.
