The first hire an Entrepreneur should make

Building a business is a challenging and exciting time and all too often entrepreneurs get focused on the administration aspects of building a business. Costs are a major issue at the beginning but get some support as soon as you can to enable you to focus on the areas you excel in. Even if this means getting a regular temp to sort out the backlog twice a week, you will be glad you made the investment. Over time the role may vary and when you are more established and know what the business needs, that is a great time to make a permanent hire.

Think about it. Your single most valuable asset in the early days is your senior team and presumably, nobody is more valuable than the founding team. And you’re bogged down in expense claims, booking hotel rooms, scheduling meetings, dealing with a leaky toilet, processing payroll, ordering computers, etc.”
