About Slicing Pie
Slicing Pie means paying the people who help you with equity in your business instead of cash. This can be a very powerful tool that in some ways is better than cash (but not all ways, unfortunately). Slice the pie properly and you will compensate the people who help you in a fair and equitable manner. Slice the pie improperly and you will destroy your business and burn bridges with the very people who came to help.
