well your friendship is now bussiness... -----Original Message----- From: Alan McCoy [mailto:a.r.mccoy at larc.nasa.gov] Sent: Wednesday, November 15, 2000 10:26 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Three Buddies Dot Com... Greetings, all!! A couple of friends and I are talking about starting our own multimedia design firm (I refrain from using the term "startup"...don't want to jinx ourselves. ;-). As I think about the endless possibilities of starting a new venture with my buddies, I'm a bit concerned about any issues (whatever they may be) that might pop up and potentially ruin a company and a good friendship. Has anyone else started a design shop under the same or similar circumstances? Right now, I'm starting to pick up an increasing number of freelance clients and would really like to share the load with my two friends (a 3D animator and a Director/Authorware developer) We've done countless number of projects for our employer, but we'd really like the flexibility of taking on some more adventurous and (dare I say) "hip" jobs. Any wisdom/sage advice/warnings/anecdotes would be much appreciated.
