My co-founder 'Bob', and myself have been working out of separate locations for about 2 years. Bob and I built the business together and we both own an equal share.
We are looking to get an office together in order to more efficiently handle an increased workload. Bob strongly insists on me using his office full-time. However, a one way trip takes ~1 hour of my day and less than 10 minutes of his. In addition, the office itself is shared with other people, whom have nothing to do with the business. Bob has good relationships with them. I feel like this makes him reluctant to leave, although he won't admit to it.
I've argued these points and I've suggested that with increased supply for office space, we could easily find an affordable location which works for the both of us. Unfortunately, Bob is very persistent and I am not willing to give in to this. I would like to avoid a power-struggle situation as this could really put a strain on our relationship.
Thank you for your input :)
