I have been speaking with a former co-worker who has expressed an interest in working with me. I want to bring him on board, but I cannot afford to hire him until at least April or May. In the meantime, I would like him to do some designs for me. I would like to send him out to meet with potential customers and put together designs. I would then work with him to put numbers on each of the jobs and it would be up to him to sell from there. I am spending the majority of my time following up on hardscape leads. I would have him follow up on softscape leads that I don't have time to pursue. My question is, how would you reimburse this person until he is full time? I have some ideas, but I am looking for imput.
