One of the biggest crossroads a startup will face is making their first hire. Hire too soon or too late can cost you business.
Scaling slowly is important in business, but there comes a point that you can’t grow unless your business grows…people-wise.
Whether your start-up is tech or non-tech many founders are imagining their first hire to be an expert in another aspect of the business.
This isn’t smart.
If your business has attracted its first clients and you are growing, your first hire should always be a VA.
Because, if you are at the point that you can hire then it’s clear you are successful on your own or with your co-founder(s). What is needed most is more time to continue doing what you have been doing.
How do you get more time? You delegate!
Many founders will look for a head of sales before they’ll hire a virtual admin to handle minutia. That seems silly: your time is more valuable to the company than anyone else’s, so you should free it up in the least expensive way possible.
Here’s where we shamelessly plug LaBlaq Creativ: Your Remote Secret Weapon. There’s plenty of tasks that take up your day that you simply don’t have time for or don’t want to do. Delegate! Free up your time so you can get back to business.
