You need a great team to do great things. If you have a B team, you cannot get A things done. That’s life. Be realistic.
Building a superteam is not easy. Excellent players have several options, where they usually will be paid higher salaries. You can only convince them by sharing the vision, making them feel that they will be part of it. Not only feel, but being part of it. Shares. Responsibility. Think in the long term.
The key thing is that everyone in the founding team must have passion for the product or service. Passion makes a résumé 1000 times better. No passion, no greatness, no success.
