In an S-Corporation, all connected parties are basically either employees or directors (board). I would treat yourself as an employee and set a reasonable salary that you can start paying yourself through your S-Corp. You can also control where the money in the organization goes (saved for further use as retained earnings or paid out in bonuses). I would ensure that your salary is on the lower side especially if you want to bring on investors in the future as they will likely spend extra time around the employee and director compensation piece as an area of interest.
