A Friday series exploring Startups and the people who make them go. Read all If the Shoe Fits posts here.
How many members of your team have been “bloodied in combat?”
How many have worked successfully through multiple economic (upturns/downturns) realities?
Who would you ask if you needed dynamic (question/discuss), as opposed to static (online postings), advice of “the been there/done that” variety to
- land a candidate;
- sell in a recession;
- tweak/kill a marketing campaign;
- beat the competition; or
- Layoff a team member?
Don’t ask me; I’ve answered this question multiple times in varied forms.
Instead, ask millennial Tom Goodwin.
Maybe you’ll listen to him.
