We had a listener ask the question: should you start a business with a friend? And while this might sound funny coming from us, our answer is a resounding HELL NO!

But if you’re really considering it, there are a few questions you need to ask. Sure, business partnerships can work, but it’s going to take a lot of extra thought.
