( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

SkipHuffman no offense, but if your idea is so great then why aren't you pitching it to investors who can give you the capital to actually pay people?

Or if you're worried about losing control of your company then why aren't you at a bank asking for a loan? Many banks will loan you money if you have a decent business plan and a plausable way to make money. At the very least you could be researching the countless programs that exist to help get small businesses off the ground.

Honestly I wouldn't do it because, besides not getting paid, you have no plan and you don't seem to have tried awefully hard to make a plan or to obtain money from somewhere, doesn't exactly inspire much confidence in your assertions that the stock will be worth something someday ...

You'll be lucky if you find anyone willing to work for free, its likely that if you do find someone they aren't going to be all that good ... buggy software is a sure way that your idea is sunk before it even gets off the ground.

So my advice, do some research, make a real business plan and find someone to invest in your idea. Its risky enough for someone to take a job with a startup that does pay a salary! Give someone a reason to actually work with/for you.
