Should I join my friends venture?


A former colleague with whom I have a good relationship has started up her own business in the same industry. She has invited me to join her at a lower salary, but with the incentive of being able to build the business together. I enjoy my job, but find it a bit too hierarchical. Should I take a gamble on joining my friend’s business, or stay in the secure environment of my present job?
