Ep 21: Co-Founder Conflict – The Number One Reason Early Startups Fail

In this episode I share the number one problem for startups – “co-founder conflict.”  Co-founders launch their startups full of hopes and dreams, yet I’ve seen first-hand what happens.  I share three examples where none of the founders ever imagined the turn of events that lead them to conflict.
