We're presenting a business plan for our startup, and I wonder if we should include our own compensation in the financial projections. I mean, our compensation is distributed on a "as-available" basis, meaning that if on a given month we have money, we get paid, otherwise we don't (or we get paid only a small amount). Anyway, we'll handle our compensations in a very flexible way.
We have some (mostly fictitious) sales projections that should generate some revenue. Should we include our own compensation based on these sales projections, or is it better to just say that we get paid at the end of the fiscal year?
Note that this business plan is oriented to advisors, not potential investors.
