I was thinking about this aloud to myself and I thought that it would be a good idea to those that are thinking about going into a partnership with a business. Why not split services being offered and you both own a seperate business yet provide each other with your services. For example: Guy #1 could own lawn care & snow removal Guy #2 could own fertilization, aeration, landscaping maintenance Both of them then sub-contract the other work out to each other for they are still kind of in a partnership, but not really. Both still have ownership of their own business. So if there is any type of conflict, the other could just move on and not worry about splitting up the business. This also could cut down spreading yourself to thin in areas where you are not educated in and also spending extra money on equipment that you would hardly use. What is everybodys opinions on this?
