Start Up Diaries – Going Into Business with Friends

Friends in Business

I once went into business with two good friends, the type where you spend your weekends in each others houses; families together, food, drink, laughter, and even tears. You find out a lot about people when you spend that amount of time together. But you only ever get to see inside someone’s soul once shares are issued and you’ve signed your Articles of Incorporation. Like a marriage, there’s no amount of time you can live together that will prepare you for tying that knot. I have two less friends now. And while I’m not advocating that you avoid going into business with friends, I am suggesting you accept beforehand that the friendship might not outlast the business.
