- Hire Remote Employees
Remote employees mean you have truck full of talented people to choose from. They are a no-cost perk and are a smart choice for you. Just in case these remote employees are not sufficiently reasonable for your company, you can offer them adjustable working conditions like that of working from home twice a week and three days from the office, by doing so you are benefiting both, the employee as well as the company.
- Bootstrapping Attitude
Every employer wants someone who has initiative and vision since you are not going to have time. Priorities change with time. Keep in mind to choose the one who has an innate entrepreneurial spirit and can spare time at moment’s notice. Prioritize with the one whom you think can accept changes and can take risks. You should keep in mind to hire the one who can grow and learn quickly, when you have intellectual individuals in the room who can adapt and transform you will always be ahead of the curve. There is nothing better than being helped by the one who has the same thinking style and attitude that you have.
- Make Them Demonstrate
