The three founding management team members will be our sole employees during the start-up phase until we go live at the beginning of May. They will not take a salary until the second year, because they will be under a profit sharing agreement.
Starting May 1 we will add one sales rep per month starting on the first of each month in May, June, August, September, October, November, and December. We will continue contracting more representatives in 2006 to reach 15 salespeople by mid-year, and then 25 by mid-year 2007. Our sales team members will be contract employees paid straight commission, with no expenses reimbursed or benefits. As contracted labor, their commissions are listed with other non-inventory costs of sales in the Profit and Loss.
Our sales team will be recruited from our network of contacts within the arena of post-acute-care clinical salespeople.
Beginning in September of 2005, we will hire a part-time office manager from a temp agency at $12 per hour for 20 hours per week. This will move to 30 hours per week in year two and 40 hours per week in year three.
