One of the most toxic ways early stage companies fail is picking bad co-founders.
Building a business is hard, and if you expect to ever make it anywhere worth mentioning, you're going to need help. Anything past a cute business that makes you a couple hundred bucks a month is going to have more work than you think.
There is simply too much to do alone.
My suggestion: Do your best to find someone you can work with. The best business leaders find ways to bring in diversity of thought. Assemble your team to fill in your gaps. If you think you have none, you're being dishonest with yourself.
Take your time with the search. Picking a bad co-founder will take you nowhere fast, like you've seen. Start with Angellist, ask a lot of questions.
After encountering so many who can't, it's great to finally meet someone that can. Thank you Amir for your expertise and insight!
Had some questions around electronic control units. Amir was great, answered every question. Thanks Amir
