Hi guys, I'm in a special position so I need to start with some history. I have a side business as a webdesigner and I help local businesses get their offline business launched in the online world. I'm registered at a company such as hostgator/godaddy (let's call them "dealer") as a reseller for hosting services and domain names. Of course I buy my services at a cheap price and then resell them at current market prices. I'm actually quite competitive with my prices compared to my competitors but of course no where near the prices of my "dealer". At the moment, I'm now lucky enough to be considered a partner (via shares) in the startup of a new business. I would be in charge of IT infrastructure so I'm setting up a typical installation of webservices and systems this company would need. The thing is, my partners are starting to close in on me to disclose how I do things, and I don't like that. They ask questions like "what if you are no longer in the company and something happens, who do we call then for help"? Problem: the company hasn't been founded yet, so there are no shares nor papers signed yet. So I don't have any guarantee that I'll be part of the game once it all starts. I don't feel tempted to have full disclosure about my sources (which are of course cheaper) without the guarantee that I'll be in fact part of the company. On the other hand I also understand their concerns. They do indeed need to have a solid understanding of how things will work and who to call in case of an emergency (e.g. Holidays, Not reachable, I leave, I die, I retire, etc...) so that the company is not in jeopardy. So imagine I do indeed have a written agreement / shares, then I would happily give up my sources (with their own support team etc...) but then they will also realize that I inflated the price in my quotations/proposals. Any advice on how you would tackle this?
