For many business owners and prospective business owners, it often occurs when you consider the possibility of forming partnerships with other entities. This entity can be another business, individual, or a group of individuals. This article discusses issues of partnerships with other individuals. Whether you are an existing business owner, or think of starting a new business, at a certain stage, consideration is often given to go alone, or form a partnership. There are many reasons for people to form partnerships; Generally there are shared goals, or recognition sharing potential certain opportunities. For partnerships to succeed, there must be more than a common goal for those involved. The important component is trust in both parties, in relation to voice communication between the parties. Below is a list of advantages of partnerships.
Finance – Investment and loans can be distributed
Workload – Workload decreases by sharing between two
Planning – Planning can be increased by having two heads see ideas
Stress reduction – stress running a business can be reduced
Focus – Better focus can be provided by separating responsibilities for various fields
Opportunities – Better positions to see opportunities

Workload – may not spread evenly among partners
Planning – Partners may not approve the direction of business
Stress – can increase because the difference mentioned above
Focus – lack of focus and settlement of tasks by a partner
Opportunity – like with focus, one pair may always pursue the next big thing than the task
Growth – Business does not have growth due to the above problems
So why are both the same? There is a dichotomy between advantages and disadvantages in partnership. What can be an advantage on the one hand, can, if it is not implemented properly loss.
Why does the partnership fail
It is a well-known fact that many partnerships fail, even successful. The reason for failure is as much as the amount of failure, but I will give you one here which I think is the main reason for most partnership failures;
