I saw companies with large teams and thought that if I hired large teams I could be just like them.
Plus, there’s something nice about creating jobs and expanding.
The problem is that the larger your team, the more quality suffers.
Even with a tight process, you still have less time for each team member and have your time spread across more projects, plus unanticipated administration costs.
Every successful entrepreneur I know started with a small team of super high-quality people- folks who would walk through fire for you.
Don’t make my mistake of hiring anyone short of amazing.
A billionaire I know said that his criteria for hiring a person was if he’d be willing to work for them.
How about you?
