    I'd weight out the pros and cons of each. Does your business have potential to really grow? Even if you do choose her, would she be supportive of anything else you want to accomplish later on?

    Hey Nick, first I would suggest you get clear on yourself.

    Really know and understand what you want in life.


    Do this First:

    1. Assess your Priorities and Values in Life. What is important to you and why is it important?

    Is this business really that important to you? If so, WHY is it important? What are the underlying reasons you want to build it? Is it to build your character and self worth? Do you want financial freedom?

    2. Assess your Relationships. How important are relationships with your friends, family, and significant others?

    You must realize that building a business takes a lot of your time and commitment. As a result, your relationships may suffer.

    Really think about your priorities and what you want out of life, than you can make better decisions. Once you make a decision, commit to it and try not to go back and forth. If you don't do this, it won't be fair to others as you can't fully focus on them and you won't be able to focus on your business. Hope these suggestions help.

    If she's serious about this, I don't think she'll be supportive of you in the long run. Sometimes it can help to have the right person by your side supporting you.
