There is always a vision behind the start of a business. As you see your idea getting funded, you envision your product being used by everyone, and the financial success that comes with it. However, when on this journey, think beyond simply hiring a team.
As a founder, you have to hire the people that are just as enthusiastic about realising your visions as you are, and you have to lead those people to actually accomplish your goals. However, managing a team and ensuring everyone is happy takes effort, which many ignore to focus on increasing revenues.
What’s important is to be the leader, and work with people who believed in you through the toughest first phase, to accomplish your goals together. Every person has different motives, which become even more prevalent when you work in a small team. Hence, it is crucial that you know how to properly align people’s interest and motivation – in other words, how to lead those people and have them want to work as hard as possible to accomplish your common goal.
