When I first started in real estate a few years ago, I did my research and took the courses and seminars and spent the money to do it.  No one believed in me or wanted to know anything about it.  Well, after I bought my first property at an auction my sister jumped on the band wagon and "me" turned into "we". 
Being my twin, she is the other half of me and I just could not say "NO" (ahhhh, the family ties that bound an gag....) Well that was two years ago and I am happy to have her as my partner.  She pushes me and keeps me on track.  She is the organized one and I am the creative one.  We bounce ideas and plans off of each other and remind each other that we have bigger and better in store for us when life (a.k.a. our 9 to 5) gets in the way. 
We still have a ways to go before we are where we want to be financially speaking but at least having the same goals makes it all the more easier.

Marital bliss and economic productivity are not necessarily synonymous, but when these two qualities coincide, it could lead to a richness beyond the emotional context. 

Who you marry (as it relates to your future success) is so critical that Thomas J. Stanley dedicated a whole chapter to the subject in his best selling book "The Millionaire Mind".

I'm partnering with my sister (she's a lawyer) on a case by case basis. I think it all comes down to delivering what you say you're going to do. I offer her an opportunity to make extra money with very little work. She ponies up some cash and lets me do my thing. So far so good, but as i said its only on a case by case basis. If you do what you say you're gonna do, shouldn't be a problem. But i still signed a contract to make sure we each knew our duties and how we'd split the profit.
