I hardly ever find one that I possibly could get my father, or most other men, to read. I possibly could get my father, or almost every other men, to read. For most of us men, that’s a no brainer. When it comes to engines he could be a genius. Take the spark plug. For some good reason, we fail to apply the same logic to our relationships.
I know this because I’ve done it myself. I’m still susceptible to want to bolt when it gets rough. This power struggle is a predictable piece of relating with your loved one totally. The very best news is that the only path out is through. Sometimes we just need some basic tools and good skills.
With an apparently inexhaustible amount of cash sitting safely in the lender, the founders happily set to work turning their prototype into something they can release. 1. They pay him the smallest salary he can go on, plus 3% of the company in restricted stock, vesting over four years. They spend just a little money on a freelance graphic developer also. How much stock do you give early employees? That varies so much that there’s no conventional amount.
If you get someone excellent, really early, it could be smart to give him as much stock as the founders. The main one universal rule is that the amount of stock a worker gets decreases polynomially with age the company. In other words, you get rich as a charged power of how early you were.
So if some friends want you to come work for his or her startup, don’t wait several months before deciding. A month later, of months four by the end, our group of founders have something they can release. Gradually through word of mouth they start to get users. Seeing the machine used by real users-people they don’t really know-gives them lots of new ideas.

Also they find they now get worried obsessively about the status of their server. Of months six By the end, the machine is beginning to have a good primary of features, and a small but devoted following. People start to write about it, and the founders are beginning to feel like experts in their field. We’ll assume that their startup is one that could put a huge number more to use. They need to spend a lot on marketing Perhaps, or build some kind of expensive infrastructure, or hire paid salesmen highly. So they decide to start speaking with VCs.
They get introductions to VCs from various resources: their angel buyer links them with a couple; they meet a few at conferences; a couple VCs call them after reading about them. Armed with their now somewhat fleshed-out business plan and in a position to demo a real, working system, the VCs are stopped at by the founders they have introductions to. They find the VCs intimidating and inscrutable.
They all ask the same question: who else perhaps you have pitched to? Among the VC firms says they want to invest and offers the founders a term sheet. A term sheet is a listing of what the deal conditions will be when and if they do a deal; lawyers will later fill in the details. By accepting the term sheet, the startup agrees to show away other VCs for a few set timeframe while this firm does the “due diligence” required for the offer. The homework discloses no ticking bombs, and six weeks later each goes forward with the deal.
