In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose reminisces about a meeting with his mastermind group, in which a member posed the question: "How do you know if you should take someone on as a partner, and if they are worth pursuing?"

Rose's fellow mastermind members responded that if a new partnership exacerbates a point of low self-esteem and low confidence for you, you should think twice. A fruitful partnership should not make you feel limited or force you to rely on the other person. Feeling stifled will only hurt your business and your potential to find a better partner.
