  • Please read my testimony, it can bring solution to the problems you are facing in life. I met this spell caster Dr Mojo online and read the testimonies of many persons witnessing how he has help them solve problems of any kind such as fibroid without surgery, Infertility, cure of diabetes, breast cancer, weak erection, regulation of menstruation and pains, stroke, HIV / AIDS, successful interview and work examination, political achievement, recovery of lost money, quick sales in business or commerce, choice of good marriage partner, power to bring your ex back, stopping your man or woman having affair outside your relationship or marriage, power to win pool, lottery, visa approval, reduction of sagging breast, gun protecting spiritual ring, promotion at work etc ... I contacted him through his WhatsApp instant messenger with the phone number +27797427509.I was absolutely desperate to have my husband back. Life without my husband was a pain for me and my children. I wanted a drastic change and I thought that only magic can be the only solution because he was so cruel towards me. After discussing my problem with Dr Mojo, he gave me hope that my marriage shall be restored. He gave me confidence that he will make my husband to come home and he did It! It was a great miracle, He never asked for money before helping me, all he requested for was some few items i had to purchase, and i provided these items immediately, he performed the spell and my marriage was restored immediately. His help is invaluable! I do not know what I could have done without Dr Mojo, he does his job well, his powers are so real and effective, I think he is the best caster I can count on when it comes spells, although at first I never believed in magic until I had to try, I think there are many who are depressed, desperate and want this spell to return their happiness, so I have to use this medium to reach all those who are facing one problem or the other. Contact him immediately and I can guarantee that your problems are solved. You can also contact him via emailaddress; website;, for quick response call him or message him through Whatsapp instant messenger with his number+27797427509. Good luck, i hope you find your heart desires.

  1. Wealthfront Equity Plan Playbook for Owners
 March 8, 2016
  2. How do you attract and retain the best employees?
  5. Plan approach must be rational and equitable
  6. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 6 Over the past 25 years…
 • Our founder, Andy Rachleff, designed a plan that accomplishes both goals at an appropriate level of dilution • The plan has become known as
 The Wealthfront Equity Plan • Simple, transparent & fair, it has now been adopted
 in various forms by a number of companies at
 varying stages.
  7. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 7 Example: Startup in Hypergrowth 
 • Company • Consumer internet • 50 employees • San Francisco Bay Area • Staffing Goal • Grow employee base to 100 by end of the year
  8. A compelling equity compensation plan has four types of grants PROMOTIONS PERFORMANCE EVERGREENNEW HIRES
  10. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 10 New Hire Grants • List all functions & expected number of people to be hired • Next, determine the market rates to hire these individuals • Let’s look at some examples

  12. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 12 New Hire Scenario #2
  13. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 13 New Hire Scenario #3
  14. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 14 Example New Hire Budget Create an “equity budget” to calculate total dilution for new hires
  15. Next, let’s focus on promotions PROMOTIONS PERFORMANCE EVERGREENNEW HIRES 1.92%
  16. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 16 Promotion Grants • Employees who have been promoted need to be at market rate for their new position • Two scenarios • The person being promoted has equity below today’s market rate • The person being promoted has equity above today’s market rate.
  17. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 17 Promotion Scenario: Employee has less equity
  18. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 18 Promotion Scenario: Employee has more equity
  19. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 19 Example Performance Budget
  20. Now let’s focus on performance PROMOTIONS PERFORMANCE EVERGREENNEW HIRES 1.92% 0.5%
  21. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 21 Performance Grants • Give additional equity to a limited number of people to reward performance (Top 10-20%) • Bump needs to feel large, but maintain equitable nature of the entire plan • 50% of equity grant for their current role, if hired today
  22. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 22 Performance Scenario
  23. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 23 Example Performance Budget
  24. Finally, let’s focus on evergreen PROMOTIONS PERFORMANCE EVERGREENNEW HIRES 1.92% 0.5% 0.125%
  25. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 25 Evergreen Grants • Goal is to retain employees for the long term • Avoid vesting cliffs so employees to avoid artificial anxiety points to stimulate interest in new opportunities
  26. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 26 Evergreen Scenario
  27. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 27 Evergreen Scenario • Start offering additional grants at 2.5 years. Predictable. • Give 1/4 of current market offer for their current role / title. • In this case, 0.018% per year
 (0.07% ÷ 4) • Vests over 4 years • Grant every year avoids cliffs
  28. ©2014 Wealthfront Inc. 28 Evergreen Example Budget
  29. Add up all grant dilution PROMOTIONS PERFORMANCE EVERGREENNEW HIRES 1.92% 0.5% 0.125% 1.4%+ + +
