    Hi all, and thanks for having me.

    So – I’ve been running an online (& offline) Retail (& wholesale) business for about 2.5 years alone – and looking for a change. It’s come to a point where I need to either go hard, or go home.

    Coming from a Creative/Advertising background – I have the creative strategy, experience in ecommerce, marketing skills, branding/design experience, understanding of multi-channel sales, technical skills, and ability to develop and manage websites. I have an eye for products that sell, and have established connections with great suppliers, and drop-shippers (both local and international).

    What I’m not great at is admin, operations, bookkeeping, and financial control, making decisions – and sticking to them. I don’t consider myself the “Business-Type” – and therefore think that the only way forward, is to find a partner that has the “other-side” of my brain. Someone who could help out with decision making, investing, financial control, ease the stress, and allow me to have more of a work-life balance.

    Any suggestions or ideas?

    Hi Mr D, and welcome,

    There are probably a few people around here who share your frustrations :)

    I’ll be interested to hear the kind of advice you receive.

    All the best,
    Jayne

    Looks like youre already getting some bites, but something you may want to consider posting is your location, (if that matters, in the world of telecommuting you might not care if your partner was in another state) and if you would expect a financial contribution from a partner to join the business.

    Best of luck
