Hello, I have an online startup and some really great volunteers. My partner and I have a solid business plan and are approaching investors and potential advertisers. I highly value the volunteers who have helped develop the company, and now one has approached me about payment for his commitment. I don't know what I can offer him to keep him on board with the project. I know he enjoys his work and believes in it, but how long can I really expect a qualified worker to "volunteer" or "intern", right? I am looking for ways to compensate him and others until the cash flow comes. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated, as I don't want to lose my staff but can't afford to give them salaries yet. Thanks so much!
