John Warrillow originally shared:
 
Some of my fondest memories are debates with my dad about whether or not to share equity with my key employees.

I would go to my dad for advice right before giving someone equity and every time he would talk me off the ledge.

We used to have raging battles but every time, I would listen to his sage wisdom and decide to find a different way to make employees feel like partners without actually giving up any equity.

In the end -- as is the case with most of my parental squabbles -- he was right and i was wrong. I can hear my father's voice in this article about things to do before sharing equity with a partner.
