Should Your Partner Be Your Mentor?
Sometimes, he’ll say you aren’t ready
This can get uncomfortable. If your partner is much further along in your industry than you are, then remember that he has perspective that you may not. You may think you’re totally ready for an opportunity, but he actually knows what it takes to get there. Of course, when he tells you—you, with your head full of steam—that you aren’t quite ready, you could get angry with him. One day, in a few years, you’ll see he was right, but that doesn’t stop the fight happening right now.
