    She says, \"We need to talk\". This can\'t be good...

    So I'm talking to my new buisiness partner this morning before going in to the office and she says "Don't come in today". Then she says, "We need to talk". This can NOT be a good thing. I guess she's going to be calling me this afternoon for this "Talk"... What do you think? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    This is your PARTNER?

    If I had a business partner tell me "Don't come in today, we need to talk" I would tell her "No problem, meet me at <font color="brown"> (insert favorite breakfast place here)</font> right now and we can have a chat." If it's that big of a problem then it's better to get started on figuring it out right away before someone else tries to "fix" it. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    It sounds kind of ominous. Is it your birthday, anniversary or anything???


    Turn on the TV and see if there are any interesting "Breaking News" stories. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    No can do. She also has a husband and they are at a doctors appointment right now. He has cancer... This may have something to do with it...

    Nope...

    Something is wrong here. Very wrong... I don't know what but I'm going to get to the bottom of it this afternoon. This may be the end of a partnership... Boy that didn't last long... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Are you Incorporated or structured as an LLC? Could there be any liability issues with your business?

    Good luck and I hope it all works out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah, i'm curious too. i just barely squeaked out of a partnership with a post-menopausal woman a couple of months ago, and it wasn't easy. (but better in the long run)

    It didn't....

    I went over there Yesterday to have this "Little Talk". Instead of her being there and answering the door, her husband, (whom I can't stand) came out with a check and a piece of paper saying that it's just not going to work out, she wasn't there at the moment and sign this paper and here's a check for your trouble.

    We were going to file an LLC later in the month once we got delivery of our products. Now I find out after all this planning that she never even ordered them....

    Oh well... Back to the drawing board and no more partners... Ever... Especially female partners... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Man, dude that blows! I agree with not going with any more partners, if you can't afford to go into a biz by yourself then don't do it.

    You must not have been equal business partners I take it. She held at least 1% more than you did?

    So she bought you out? What's so bad about that? I'd continue with the business plans despite her backing out!!
