Ask the Virgo Girl: What to Do When Your Business Partner Doesn’t Work Out

We are so excited to partner with Dr. Walter Hidalgo with a goal of being more socially aware. Here, he answers your questions and shares advice on life and wellness while living in a social media driven world.


My ex-husband is also my business partner. We broke up because he cheated on me and lied about it. I’m trying my hardest to forgive him however I don’t know if I can. And its a constant struggle with our communication in business and personal aspects of the relationship. If I can’t forgive him – do I have to part ways with him in business or is there another way?

Advice from Dr. Walter Hidalgo: Like the old saying goes – You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure.  It boils down to this.  Are you willing to start over with something new (including a job) if you leave your business venture? The upside to this is you will not have the presence of your ex around and everything (wrong) that comes with it.  On the other hand, if you decide to keep the business venture with your ex can you handle the emotional ramifications that come with that (i.e. making irrational decisions that are related to the business)?
