Not a problem.
If you are entering onto a partnership and he is taking care of the computer side, make sure he has considered all of the risks (eg back ups, technical support etc)
As it looks like it will be a small operation to start with you really want to think about protection of your data as a minumum?
Have a look at my site (www.goitil.co.uk
) - its about IT service management for small businesses. Its only WIP at the moment so Im not trying to sell you anything..... if I can help you structure any IT questions to help cement the partnership in a fair way, let me know. Im happy to help FOC
