Time for a new CFO - the problem is, from looking at the filings, you made a deal with the devil and cannot remove him easily - probably not the smartest business decision to not have the ability to change management but we all make mistakes. The capital structure awarded WAY too much ownership to someone that has proven quite ineffective in 4 years.
I will email you directly with some suggestions for new financial management, an uplisting, and also have a strategy to create a new entity with an uplisting without involving a capital structure that is disadvantageous to you. I'm fairly certain your "partner" will not step down. This company is yours and this is YOUR brand, not someone elses.
You do need to do something to get bring back value to all of your friends and family that were involved in the original subscription - don't forget about them.
Will be contacting you directly soon.
