My liberal arts degree did not prepare me for this.

I run a very small professional services firm. The firm has had a great first couple years and has built up a solid client base and some decent cash reserves. I have long been considering bringing on my first partner to expand the kinds of services we can offer to our clients. Now that I have found the ideal candidate, I find myself struggling with the details around how to structure the partnership.

Do Goal Buddies Work?

I've often read that the way writers can maintain their momentum is to get a 'goal buddy,' someone you'd meet with or talk to once a week so you can encourage each other and kick each other in the butt and give advice. Have any of you done this? Has it worked for you? What was the secret to staying on topic and staying motivated/focused instead of getting distracted and talking about gossip/family or general complaining?

How do I get the intimacy back?

I've been going out with my partner for almost 5 years, about 2 1/2 years ago she told me she'd been sexually abused as a child. I've supported her through her counselling and depression ever since, ironically she wouldn't have been able to unpack a lot of her issues without the safe enviroment I've provided for her for the first time. I'm in counselling myself, my partner pursuaded me that I needed some help to keep myself standing, and it has really helped. But I'm starting to loose hope that things are ever going to be better again. [more inside]
