Did you have prior experience as a business owner and what's your approach to working with a Co-founder?
I was a first 100 employee at Advertising.com which eventually was sold to AOL. I also founded Quintessential Realty, a boutique real estate brokerage company along with The Quan Group, a private real estate investment company which I both exited out of to go into full time church ministry where I helped re-kickstart a church campus plant.
As for working with co-founders, my preference is to first be on the same page from a greater-purpose perspective, a lot of grace comes when you know ultimately what is the most important. I also think humility and trust underpins the co-founder relationship. The best co-founder relationships are preexisting ones where you have a good sense of how you work together and have experienced a common sense of purpose before.
