Your business must have first place priority.
This helps you communicate your vision clearly, as your members can see clearly how passionate you are about your business, and gives them a head start on what is expected of them.
Ensure to build a family of your team as you progress.
Your team should include people that provide you with support, advice, and customer network. Your team members should go beyond people on your payroll.
