YOUR TEAM OF PIONEERS
Your first few employees will be crucial for the survival of your business. You should look for strong-willed individuals to be your pioneers.
Ask yourself, who will be willing to take the risk to join you on your business journey? In most cases, it’s someone you’re familiar with.
They can be your ex-colleagues, partners, clients, schoolmates, etc.
Keep your options open, some of them may not commit to a full-time job, so consider starting them on a part-time basis. It’s crucial to keep your operation costs at its lowest especially when you’re just starting off.
