    I think you shoud stick on your own if you can there to many things that can go wrong if you have got a partner he does not drive ,different cleaning methods ,age, money are just a few

    He needs you, you don't need him.. Also 50/50 is same as on your own.. And trusting someone is another thing too

    If you want to expand why not get people working for you (employees)

    window cleaning on own isn't easy. it can be great working wit@ someone, someone to help motivate, plan, and encourage.

    but if it goes wrong, it goes horribly wrong. and you will earn less.

    I'd go it alone myself........

    I'm same as this, i had a business partner for 4 years and went solo for 6, never again.
    Too much of a struggle even if your on same level.

    You have to have 100% trust... The best part about window cleaning business is that your the boss... and your own boss at the same time.
