I started working with a guy and his food business
. When we first started working together , it was a verbal agreement that we would be business partners. I believe he'll try to say we misunderstood the word "partners". but I acted as so, I created logos,
flyers, his business cards, acted as personal assistant and partner by means that during the 75 days working with him I was not paid on the weekly basis as agreed up.. He was supposed to pay me basically $10 per unit sold. so our quota was 30-40 but on some
days we would not meet quota due to him either, not providing as many units to sell or not wanting to work. I spent over 12 hours a day working for this person, being hands on.. making deliveries and promoting day and night. Before he started working with
me his following was 300 not even able to sell 10 units a week .Now its at 2k and ive promoted him to where he's now able to work 5 days a week with consistent purchases. Now I am no longer working with him because he says Im not an asset anymore. But has
yet to pay me whats owed. I only charge him for 10 weeks at $200 a wk= 2000. Has paid me 1250 in small installments and now owes a balance of 750.. He's now saying that he does not owe me anything . I want to take him to small claims. but i would like advice.
Because i acted as if it was my own company and worked just as hard as him if not more, would i be entitled to a percentage of company. Ive sat in meetings with his, gave him business advice, went to the bank to open accounts and even helped him register his
business.Is it worth fighting for as i have text messages, screen shots and plenty of proof of the work i did? or just make him pay whats owed and go separate ways
