> First, don't.

No one got anywhere by doing nothing. I would think its better to try and fail.

But lots of people got nowhere from doing the WRONG thing. Focusing on finding a cofounder instead of on furthering the product could definitely be one of those mistakes.

The ultimate question of business is about deciding between alternatives and asking which is best for the company:

1) If I carry on with the product, can I keep quality and speed to improve sales significantly or will I quickly hit a wall which will cause my customers to leave? 2) If I find a good founder instead, will they help me with stuff I am not good at and give me the space to keep quality and speed or is it a distraction?
