How To Do Hiring The Right Way
One of the goals of hiring is figuring out how you can increase the average talent with each hire.Oftentimes founders think that they are like the smartest people in the universe. Founders tend to be pretty smart but also very willing to take on risk.
Your first couple of employees should be a lot smarter and just a little bit more risk averse than you are. If when you're hiring someone you don't think you're increasing the average intelligence for the company, you made a mistake because those people are basically your hiring advertisement.
If those people are smart, other smart people want to come to your company. If those people are not smart everyone knows.
If you can't hire someone who is smarter then you just do it yourself.
