Depends on how connected you'll be in the business (are you partners, or are you just getting hired out on occasion?). It also depends on what the business is.

The one I described was more like: "dude, I've known you for years and I need a second shooter: join me! We'll split the profits 70/30: whoever the project came from gets the bigger piece of the pie."

Yeah, it's very simplistic in nature at this point--but I'm currently making a budget, projecting revenue and expenses, and trying to figure out how many projects I'll need to do to "break even" where equipment is concerned within a certain period of time.

On a side note, I also have a stake in a company that does events organising and graphic design, so there are chances for work coming in through there as well.
