I am currently consulting for a company. They would like to offer me NQSOs now, or I could receive ISOs when I become a regular employee in about 6 months.
But, I might never become an employee.
Should I take the NQSOs now or wait for ISOs?

If there is a chance you might never become an employee, take the NQSO “bird in the hand.”
