I'm opening a small start-up consulting business and would prefer to be paid in equity. It's unusual, I know, but it's my preference.
What is the simplest way to structure an equity-pay transaction with a client? I want to make it nearly as easy for the client to pay me in equity as it is to write me a check. Apple iPad easy.
Finally, what is the best way to structure equity payment when working with a client who isn't working towards a large exit, such as a local dentist office? Do I negotiate equity that receives dividends? Or just common shares that benefit whenever the business is liquidated.
Thanks for your thoughts on these 2 questions.
