Hello My father is going to be scaling back his lawn service next summer and plans to give a friend and I those jobs so we can continue the business. The original plan was to do a partnership between the friend and I. I would buy the equipment and he would pay me off till he paid off his half. I am having second thoughts now. If I'm going to be fronting the entire cost that's not a partnership. If I can afford the entire start up myself, whats the point in doing a partnership? I only wanted to work a specific amount and he is wanting to do more. So he wants to use the equipment I bought to do work on his own on the side. That is not a partnership either. What say you? Thanks.
