As a Small Business owner you know the value of finding good talent and keeping that talent. One thing you need to watch out for especially in a company which is driven on sales, is your young hot shot talent using your trust against you.

I have seen in the past where a top sales guy leaves the company either voluntarily or involuntarily only to start a brand new company. Then uses his or her experience gained from you to take your employees, customer, and ultimately the business you worked hard to start.

Make sure you have you attorney draw up a good employment agreement and do not rely on at-will Michigan employment law because there is no non-compete without a contract.

A reasonable non-compete clause can help protect you from a pirate who takes your business right out from under you once they leave.
