I have been with a new publishing startup (7 people total, 4 of which are contracted – e.g., marketing, managing editor, etc.). I am the sole writer, making me the only one who is unexpendable (I write all of the content, am essentially the voice of the whole thing). When I signed my contract last year, it was a basic independent contractor form.
Now that I know that the company is seeking funding and has established an advisory board, I believe that I should not only ask for more money, but also seek some kind of equity in the company. But I am a total startup newbie and have no clue what my demands should be.
Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks 🙂
