Sorry for the delay to answer you guys (did you see?...time!) and thanks for your input, they bring me new ideas, new choices.
I`ve got a friend of mine that wants to join me as a partner, but hard to convince him to jump from a employment when he has 3+1 kids and his wife to support (she can`t work, 4 kids IS a Company).
I told him THAT is the very reason he must jump to grow by himself, but this is a shoe no anyone wants to use.
A partner for me is the inmediate solution since I can share with him all my extra jobs I have, I can inject advertising, take a time to bring more customers by harvesting references that I`m not exercising, and grow together.
A partner means for me: brain-storms new ideas, win-win scenario in all the mean, for us, for our customers that are suffering a long time wait for service, my friend will do more income than working the same amount of time (extra hours, never a vacacion) working for himself, we all know this.
Paper still have to wait as a second priority. Then I think, after run a while as partners and also polish diference between us that I know might arise, I will consider again to hire someone else, because my type of business requires Hight Tech Computer guy and its payroll start at $3k/month as a minimum.
Yes, you guys are right. An employee is not yet the right decision to make.
At the other hand, get outsourcing on phone or paper (VA) won`t help too much, because I need someone actually ON THE FIELD instead of me to do it. I can handle calls, but I can`t help them (customers) all.
That`s where partner come along for me.
Also I hear always everywhere: employees don`t care for the business as a partner will do. An employee aim to his/her payroll (99%) and probably a little(1%) how he/she can help to grow the Company where belong. And that scenario won`t help me too much, at contrary.
Partner for the other side, I think, he/she will aim to both ends (50%grow, 50% profit) .
I know there always exceptions to the rule, but I know my friend is almost a brother for me and we both know we won`t do anything to hurt each other, including in business.
Now that you help me to see new points, new questions arise:
How much should I push a friend to join this `adventure` since every decision in lifes is a PERSONAL win/loose situation?
For me, the worth scenario would be to come back and get a job and pay debts (doesn`t it sound familiar?) and THAT is not a choice.
But not everyone think in that way. Even my friend wants to grow, but...seems no strong enough emotion, or pain.
And after months pushing him (in all the positive ways only), I think, it`s time to let him go on his own direction and look for new partner.
