    It's possible, but you should be really great leader
    People should be inspired by the idea, you must make them believe in it.
    Also, you should have a very close relationship, so people trust you and spend time on you.
    Simply put, you must infect the idea, and promise that you will spend your time well, maybe even with a beer or a console once a week

    Like most of the replies on this thread, you'll likely have to offer shares if you can't do a salary. However, you'd obviously want to know what those people are capable of. You're not going to give out equity without knowing what kind of partner you'll be getting.

    A better first option is to contract out work in the early stages. Use whatever cash you have to pay for projects. You won't be required to keep salaries and burden on employees and you'll likely get work done efficiently and effectively. Don't consider your first hire or partner until you're absolutely necessary you need them.

    Of course, the best approach is to supplement salaries with company equity. If employees feel confident the business will take off. Then they will probably be willing to accept lower-than-market wages, as long as they're getting stock! :-)

    You should always prefer that person who has a grip over his work and you think that this person might be a boss of his business if he takes some risk.

    Not sure what you mean by this. Can you elaborate?
