What is an acceptable investor return when the start-up company is service-oriented?
I source and sell organic ingredients by locating suitable suppliers and facilitating purchases. I am accepting financial help from someone with extensive experience in the organic industry, who also provides advice, leads, etc. from time to time. He changes the terms of our original agreement on a regular basis. Most recently, he requested one-third to one-half of the profits I earn, although we orginally agreed on 1 percent. I would like to make an educated counteroffer and need direction.
