Hi, I would like your advice on my serious problem. I and my parnter (friend) are a startup company with %50 each. We are developing a software project for about 2 years. My problem is my business partner is taking my energy so much, i feel really scared to continue for the following reasons. I have knowledge in software development. I was working with a very good salary in a software company and I financially backed up my partner for 1 year. What I mean by backing up is giving nearly all my salary for him to write the core part of the project. Of could I could hire someone but I thought it would be hard to investigate or contribute to that kind of work if I am working at another company. I needed someone I trust. While I am working at another company, I spent countless nights working on the coding side also. Because my partner had some debts, I also paid all other expences like company registration because I had faith in the project. After the project was fairly working, I told my partner he needs to find a job so I can continue backing up project for marketing etc. (We had agreed on that at the beginning) We have started some sales and it is not going bad for now. The problem is my partner didnt contribute except a few days for the last 7 months after I stopped paying him. (I also gave him a few more months salary for him to help him find a good job. he didnt work on our project in that timespan too.) I cant talk about that with him because he is repeating some ****ty reasons like i cant focus because of my debts or family problems or problems he has in his new job. He doesnt even get the job done if I create a whole module spending a week (which was his job) and all I need from is to add it to some project folder on the server. I also have communication problem with him like I cant even start to brainstorm, because he would say "if you know better why do you ask me? " I feel like an idiot now (and you also think like that probably) but he was really excited about the project at the beginning. And I kept spending just to secure my previous payments. Now I come to a point the business is starting to be successful after 2 year of hard work but I am really tired of going to his home for 30 seconds of work, I am also very uncomfortable because at some point I have to sign contracts for providing future updates (which my partner has to take roles on). Would you continue with this kind of startup? or just ignore all the hard work and sleepless nights and start over with your own?
