That's an excellent point, the differences between employee and  partner.  
I'll have to add that into my considerations.  One more  angle to mull.......

We work alone here, so take  this for what it's worth, but I would say that 
working with a new partner is a  whole different thing than working with an 
employee. The issues involved in  the former include decision-making, 
levels of financial investment, sharing  risk and profit, and a lot more. To me, 
it makes the latter seem easy, in  comparison.
