  • Decreasing your tolerance for people who are not that good and a misunderstanding of what the roles look like that you need to hire is important.
  • Don't take advice from people who are one step ahead of you because they might not know.
  • Find somebody who's built multiple of the types of departments you're looking for scaled it for a long period of time and then that person will be able to share what the requisites are for the roles that you're looking for.
  • It's easy to know when someone is not a stud, but it's harder to know if someone comes in and starts as a stud and then goes down.
