Hello- My father stared our business 35 yrs. ago and has retired and my brother is now owner and I run our crews, I would really like to go out on my own but I'm afraid of stepping on toes. Our name in our community is very well known and I'm afraid it could cause problems. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. Mic71

Or, you could consider talking to your brother and seeing if there is a way for you both to work together. In my experience, I see your opportunity as potentially disasterous for you both. That being said, most partnerships end in disolution. Sooooo, try talking to him about your life goals, and see if you can potentially work together, even if your companies are seperate.
