    In any business I form, whoever puts up the money, buys control of it. There's no such thing as a partner putting in no money but getting shares in exchange for "future work". That's just not going...

    Never equal partners. SOMEONE has to be in charge and make the big decisions. My rule: Whoever is risking the most money owns the most shares.

    Yes, you can do it all yourself without software, but it's a royal pain the butt. Lots of forms, deposits that need to be made to the IRS and state, lots to keep up with.

    There's really no "self-employment tax". Basically, if you're an employer, the employer pays half the employee's social security and half their medicare taxes, the employee pays the other half. As...

    Assuming salaries match the work you do, profit disbursement is usually a return on the investment. As such, as everyone else is saying: 5:1 is "fair", because that's the level of risk being taken...

    I agree with this. What I don't agree with is being afraid of being sued. It'll happen or it won't. Being afraid doesn't change that.

    So... that said (written?), don't use their logo to promote...
