One of the biggest barriers to getting some kind of business idea off the ground for many people I feel is the sheer fact that many people don’t start. The fear of failure or lack of belief in themselves is just too much. So many times to solve this people often go looking for a business partner of sort as they feel that would provide more confidence and security to start something. In many ways though I would imagine that’s like entering into a relationship with someone thinking that will solve whatever internal issues you are dealing with.
But like with business ideas I have seen some examples as simple as people wanting to resell items on a site like Ebay or Amazon. That really is a one person job for small items. But like here I often see people trying to seek out for people to partner with them as they are too afraid to do it themselves. In my opinion fear isn’t really a reason to seek out a business partner of sort. It should be a matter of two people bringing something valuable to the table to enable them to create great things that they wouldn’t be able to do alone.
I tend to think if you are looking for a business partner to lessen your personal fear or to act as like some person who will motivate you to actually do the work then maybe you aren’t ready to start something yet in general. Funny enough, maybe even working at a job in something related will help to boost your confidence where when you feel you are ready then you can give it a shot.
