Hi all, I recently took the plunge and left my full time agency job to go freelance full time. I am still in the early days but I have a few clients and I am being proactive re networking and looking for work. I have just been approached by someone I used to work in agency with, who has also being freelancing for the past year. She has asked if I want to partner up, full time. The thought of this excites me in terms of collaboration and more brain power, and also her strengths are illustration and editorial so that would be a good balance, but terrifies me in terms of having to earn double to pay both of us; and the commitment to another person. I am enjoying the freedom and flexibility of freelancing, being my own boss, and I am worried partnering up will take this away. I have expressed my concerns. I don't want to miss out on an opportunity, as we both have the same principles and ethos, but I don't want to be naiive on the fact it's going to be an amazing dreamy journey either. I am trying to be realistic about partnerships. Does anybody have experience of partnering up? Part of me thinks maybe to suggest partnering up but in an informal way (but still have contracts etc) and still take on our own work, to see how that goes. But then that could be missing an opportunity to really just go for it re a joint business name, website, job proposals and social media. Any thoughts or opinions would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
