Hi, The lowdown: In the quest to find someone to work with in setting up a design agency, I ended up going against the rules and befriending a client. A young ambitious kid who runs a marketing company(middleman business model), but has no design skills or knowledge other than sales. Going back a year I cut him a good deal on a website and nutured the guy. I'm the director of a fairly large ecommerce setup (6 figure turnover), which is now at the point where I don't actually have to do much work, and thus have a lot of free time on my hands. Hence setting up of our agency (something I've always wanted to do & never have found the correct person to partner with). However we have a problem. This guy doesn't pay his bills to me (no matter how small) - even small bills such as £5/month for the hosting of his site. (A charge I set to test his integrity). I have to chase him for money. He cancelled his SEO service (the only time I've ever done this - which was a site redesign in HTML5) with no say-so, just stopped paying. Though, he finds funds for a holiday. He also took credit for my work, which came as a suprise. He's suggesting we launch a new website (which is already made by yours truly) and go 50/50 as a JV on an offline web design agency. So, would you get rid of him? Or acknowledge his flaws, but keep him for his sales enthusiasm. + He is good and consistent with sales. (He bagged me a job with one of the stars of a popular British television program). - The above paragraphs. Help much appreciated.
