What to look for in a business partner

Hi guys,

I got a brilliant idea to crowdsource your collective knowledge.

The problem I've been recently facing is that, after several years of reevaluating my life, I feel that I finally have a clear view on what and how to do for my dreams to come true.

OK, that is not the problem yet

The real problem is, I cannot do it alone and I need to carfully choose partners.

And here's the challenge: I have no idea where to start.
I feel like a restarted android with no data.

When I think about the way I evaluate people, it seems I subconsciously ask myself whether they could be a good friend of mine. That's all what it comes down to.
But that might be a total miss in this case.

What if I need partners whom I would hate in a private, nonbusiness setting?

What to look for in people you need to work hard with (and you have no whip on them like a contract you pay for or authority) ? Is there any magical formula for this ? Any quick quizz to apply ?

Don't tell me there is not, the intrnet is full of advice on how to find a romantic partner, isn't that even more trouble ?

TL;DR:

What 3 personal characteristics would you seek in a business partner ? (----- now that you know you have ADD with all its +s and -s )

1. Honesty
2. Intelligence
3. Motivation

That would be my top 3.

Re: What to look for in a business partner

Don't ignore that subconscious feeling, though. They don't have to be "friends", but it would be horrible to work with someone you genuinely dislike.

also, someone who is very good at aspects where you are less comfortable.

years ago I had to work with another assistant when our firm was hosting some event,and she came down to sort out how we'd do this and she had already made a list and suggested taking care of the one thing I was dreading ( setting up airport transfers). she was extroverted and fearless and I was better with the documents and emails. it was like a dream team!

And it's nice if they have a good sense of humor.
