    We would need more context. It's important to know what the main topic of the piece is before we can work out what it is that's "going".

    three reasons everything goes better with partners

    Successful entrepreneurs and innovators might be strong-willed individuals with unique dreams, but they aren't do-it-yourselfers. Leaders might be singled out for their accomplishments, but the best of them walk hand in hand with strong partners. Even "solopreneurs," a new term for people who work alone, need a support system.

    OK, thanks. In that case, it's simply "everything works better", "everything is improved by". We use "goes" in various situations to mean a lot of things.

    Hi, how are things going?
    Is dinner going yet?
    Have you got that fire going?
    Studying is going really well.
    The car is going OK at the moment.

    laurinha, it would make life simpler for evrybody if you provided the maximum amount of context at the start. We shouldn't have to drag it out of you.
