Which one is better for Rat, sole proprietorship or partnership?

On one hand, Rat people are tactful businessman; they usually keep their emotions under wraps and act in confidence, giving others the impression that they can do it on their own. And indeed, they are adept in making plans, setting up goals, and organizing detailed activities. In addition, they are not the discussable kind of people. Therefore, they are more suitable to do business alone in the way they like.

On the other hand, interpersonal relationship plays a significant role in business operation, from personnel affairs to product sale, which is not Rats’ specialty.

Asked by Tammi J from UNITED STATES | Mar. 21, 2023 19:45Reply
Will I see a surge in my income in 2023?
I am a water rat. I was born on December 1, 1972 and it seems that money is always coming and going in my life. I’ve acquired big sums of money, but it’s gone just as quickly as I received it! Usually through bad investments, a sudden major financial crisis, or a failed business.

Miko, you should keep the positive attitude towards the current situation all the time. You need to believe that the situation would change into a better stage. The career will be stable this year and then the wealth pressure will be released a lot.
