You need others to help build your business, but as you build your team, it is important to distinguish the different roles in your corporate structure. Are you dealing with co-founders with whom you started the company? How do you divide up the equity? Do you have a board of directors, and if so, who is on it? Did the board appoint any officers? Do you need to hire employees, advisors, or contractors to help carry out the company’s objectives? Answering questions such as these is essential to running an efficient and successful corporation.
