That does not always work when you also need capital to start along with an extra hand for the workload. Stagger and decide if you need more hands on help as an administrative lead or as an actual working, most times you need both.

I don't have any partner yet. I'm a doctor and working as house surgeon. So, I don't need to have business partner. However, I'm in need of a life partner. :) Hope she will be with me soon. :)

It nice and fantastic idea to have a partner in the freelance business. Some times you might be busy and your partner will be there to carry out the business. Thus, in this way you'll have time to enjoy too. It will lessen the burden too.

In my opinion there are disadvantages of having a partner but working alone can be a lot of work and you have no one to take over when you are sick or needing a temporary break for days (i.e. vacation). Right now I am weighing things about getting a business partner or not since I asked a lot of people for their opinions regarding this matter.

No, I don't have a partner. Working in partnership with someone can work, but it's not for me as I prefer working solo. That's one of the reasons I went freelance.

No, I don't have a partner, nor could I ever envision having one unless I was running my own business. I work best alone, but can see how having an extra set of hands might be useful or necessary for bigger jobs.

I'm very leery of taking partners ever since my step-brother was defrauded out of hundreds of thousands by one of his partners years ago. I agree that it can be nice to have someone else to share the burden, but remember that also means you have to share the profits too.
