The business is a Limited Liability Corporation. I want to keep the business. It is not mutual; after bring on this business partner, I have come to the conclusion that we are going in entirely different directions. Basically, for the past 2 years, I've done the majority of the work, but he still claims to want an equal amount of ownership. I've also brought in all of the company's money and I have all of the business contacts. I believe that I am better off continuing the business alone. The business is Education Support services: workshops, training and technology services.
Absolutely and I'm past the point of salvaging anything. Again, there is not a partnership agreement.
I want the business as an LLC but I don't want him as a business partner
No board of directors. I am right now the only active operator for the most part. When we started we both were under the idea of bootstrapping and making this work.
we're both listed as partners
