I read about a story of a #Founder which really inspired me.. I #wish I could be a #Part of #Such #Teams in near #FUTURE
For 6 months, I paid my entire team through my personal credit card. I was tens of thousands of dollars in debt, but I kept it all as a secret.
My operations manager knew we were struggling financially and asked me why we won’t just let go of some of our designers. She told me ‘you have to take care of yourself first before we can take care of the others.’ In a way, she was right.
I worked long hours just to make sure that our business would stay afloat. It was horrible, but I had no intention of letting anyone go. When I find someone incredible, I invest in them.
If they’re unicorns, why would I want to give them away to another company? Paying them with credit card SUCKED, but it was my way of investing in my team when times were hard. Now, we’re doing better than ever.
We’re having the opposite problem of having too many leads and clients for our team to keep up with and can’t seem to hire fast enough. I have my dream team and I would’ve given all of that up, had I not kept them around.
The point is to invest in your team. They will provide you better ROI than any other investment, without them, there is no company.
