I have 3 websites I hope to design and develop, I am not able to pay the web developer designer outright, and as such have decided it would be much better for me if I could locate a willing partners who will develop and design this site and would have 25% of the earnings of the web site for the life span of the site.

Now I get to see the negative effect
