I know a decent bit about SEO and internet marketing by this point; I haven't run any successful campaigns yet, but I'm confident that I can (will, and need to) earn a living from internet marketing by the end of one year from now. I have a friend that's in a bit of a bind and who's willing to work on projects with me, but he knows little to nothing about SEO or marketing. He's intelligent, and I know he could learn quickly, but my question is this - is it worth taking the time to educate a potential business partner when you could manage your projects on your own? Rather, is dividing the work and pay among two people really worth the effort, or do the potential gains from what I can manage alone outweigh what two marketers could accomplish together? My concerns arise from profit sharing and eventual tax management. TL;DR: Would YOU work with a long-term partner who can bring only the same skills from a different viewpoint, or is it pointless to work with someone who can't provide a unique set of skills?
