Maybe you’ve just secured a round of funding or onboarded some high-paying new customers. You’re excited about this major milestone and can’t wait to start scaling your business. Gradually, though, it dawns on you that you aren’t exactly sure what that means.
Sure, you’ve had internal discussions with your team about people you’d love to bring on, and you’ve assured investors that a chunk of that fresh cash would be used to hire the best and brightest minds to take you to new heights. But talented people aren’t always easy to come by — and you may need lots of them — immediately. Worse still, hiring the wrong people can instantly kill your momentum; and uncontrolled, unsupervised growth can leave you with a company that bears little resemblance to the one you started.
