What are the Challenges Going into Business With Friends - Mike Germano

In Chapter 2 of 16 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, social media expert and Carrot Creative president Mike Germano shares the big challenges starting a business with close friends.  He notes how the hardest part is when personal things come up that force you to choose between being a business partner and a friend.  It runs counter to focusing 100% on the business but Germano notes that friends all come first and that long-term it is best for everyone involved.  Germano is co-founder and president of DUMBO, Brooklyn based new media agency Carrot Creative.  Before Carrot Creative, Germano ran for and was elected to public office in Connecticut.  He is a graduate of Quinnipiac University.
