Sole proprietorship at the moment. But I will be changing it to a corporation or LLC soon. This is particularly important because I want to create limited partnerships while still being protected from liability. I'm not quite familiar with him at the moment. Hence why I'm first having a meeting with him and why I'm writing the contract. I will also be watching him very carefully. I will spell out a few rules in the contract as well and consequences of not following those rules, etc. Not much. Just his time, basically. He will also be liable for any work that he does- that is, he will be a general partner. The plan is for him to get in easily so that I can keep control of ownership and high profits while still be protected by certain terms in the contract. You mean making him pay for the lawyer? Huumm... that might be a good idea.... :scrachin: Why not? I can certainly support myself with the business. Besides, growing the business is THE way to make things happen. I won't be able to create a business that support itself, myself, my wife, my kid and my partners without taking risks! You see... the greater the risk the greater the return.... and the greater the knowledge, the lower the risk, so in order to maximize return and minimize risks, one must be knowledgeble of the potential risks and systematically decrease or elminate the potential of such risks. One way to do this is by writing a contract. A better way to do this is by having it reviewed by a lawyer. An even better way to do this is by having a lawyer writing it for me. However, if the later is used, I must be fully involved in the process as some situations may apply more to me then to other of the lawyer's clients. So either way I must be highly involved in the process of writing the contract. Hence why I'm considering to write it and having it reviewed. That's probably because I didn't SHOW you my business model in the first place, maybe...? Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
