Ask an Adviser: Bringing Someone Into Your Small Business

I started my retail florist business 4 years ago. Its growing and I am paying off a $50,000 debt slowly but regularly. My boyfriend came on board 7 months ago and is doing more hours than getting paid for. I am still protective of what i have grown on my own. There are some issues starting to occur. He wants some sort of financial guarantee just for the extra hours he does which might be 20 to 30 per week depending on what jobs we have on. I know we need to go and get business advice but want to know from who? How do i protect what i have built but look after him also? thanks for any advice.
