Finding Partner: Problems of Cooperation

When you reach a definite point of success and there are more worries about how to accomplish all the orders than where to find them, you begin to think of him. The Partner. Someone to rely on, someone to share your work with. You wouldn’t lose profitable orders anymore. The two of you could divide your assignments and salary in half. Just imagine that – you could go on holiday and actually get money for this whole period of time, because your partner would accomplish orders for you. Surely, you would gladly repay him with the same kindness later.

These dreams are sweet, but we live in a harsh world, my friend. I have cooperated with several authors myself, and in some cases it was indeed a pleasure, in other – pure hell. I have to admit that in general the idea of having a partner is a good one. Nevertheless, the devil is in the details.

Rule number one: don’t cooperate with a friend. You might know his/her personality, but you also might have never faced his working style. It’s a pity, when relationships are destroyed just because of unfortunate cooperation. Choose a colleague as your partner. You may find him on professional forums or… by placing an order on a custom writing service. Find a good author and offer him cooperation.
Rule number two: talk everything through before the actual cooperation begins. Decide on the ratio of salary distribution, define the amount of work each of you has to accomplish within a week and dispense your holidays. Not a single thing should be let out or you will be sorry about this later.
Rule number three: be careful. It would be perfect to sign some kind of a contract, but when it comes to custom writing it’s out of the question. Especially if you two decide to work from the same account, which is comfortable, but pretty risky. Don’t try this experiment with someone you barely know - your partner might change the password and steal all your achievements. I also wouldn’t recommend you working under the same identity with someone, whose writing style is distinctively different from your own.
Anyways, if you think you know the right person and that it won’t be hard to cope with all the problems - good luck.
