A business partner must share your passion and vision and one that you can trust. How do you go about finding that person - one way is ask friends or go to an employment agency and see how many are looking for work in your field.
Sit down and talk with them about who they are and what drives them - remembering that a partnership is easily fractured for either vision or creative differences and don't forget the work equation - what type of worker are you - that's want you want in them.
A cfo should not be a partner unless that person knows the accounting and financial field, will not spend all their time with numbers And will tell you exactly what's going on.
Accouting is my back ground and am doing a web site bout it.
