I am planning on growing my business to where I can bring my dad on full time next spring. I have some questions as it won't be as simple as working by myself: 1) Should I have my dad work for me, make him a partner or what? 2) How should I compensate him? Pay him hourly or salary? 3) I want to take good care of him...but need to be careful to not overpay. I almost don't like the idea of a partnership, as someday I may want to sell the business or if something happens to my Dad I would have to buy his part from my brother. That isn't cool! What is fair for the both of us? It would be much cheaper to hire someone and pay them $8/hour...but I want to bring my dad on to work with me as we make a great team. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
