I was working on a new way to go about my partnership. I was thinking about having the guy who is planning on buying half the company out, working as an employee instead. He will be making 10 bucks an hour or somewhere around that. He will then gain a percentage of the company at the end of each year. He will help in the shop and with all the advertising and such. This will all be done on his own time. What would be a good percentage each year eventually working up to 51-49. I would imagine it should take atleast 5 years or so before he is half and half with me. Also, what do I do in year 2, if he owns 5% plus is making 10/hour? A lot of confusion there. Sorry about that. Any input will be appreciated.
