Who Your Startup Needs

Bookmark and Share

A business needs two kinds of folks.

  1. Those who bring in business.
  2. Those who fulfill that business.

That is, you have a sales dude, and a task dude.

Without the ying and yang, your business: Kaput.

Now, you're thinking:

"Who in the mofosoko should I hire?!"

When you start your business, you either do it because:

  • You're one talented rainmaker.
  • Or, you create awesome stuff.

So, ask yourself:

  • "Am I a salesperson?"
  • "Or, am I an operations person?"

In other words:

  • What do you prefer to do?
  • What excites you?
  • What motivates you to perform?

Likewise:

  • What do you dread doing?
  • What bores you?
  • What scares you?

Choose the former; get help for the latter.

Your Todo List

Depending on who you are:

  • If you're a rainmaker, get a doer.
  • If you're a doer, get a salesperson.

Balance The Bizo

  • A company run by two folks who are awesome at building Project XYZ will suck if it can't sufficiently generate enough sales to sustain business.

  • Likewise, a company run by two people who can bring in business in droves will suck if it can't fulfill that business for their customers.

Rock both sides. Thrive.
