Your greatest asset

is not people. It’s the right people. People that might not be optimally suited for your company will make you waste time, money, and energy. Great people will create a great company. Average people make average companies. It might be hard to say, but this is something Marissa Mayer is doing at Yahoo! So if you are a small start-up, this is even more important. Convince the right people to come with you, and then let you be led by them. Their goals will excel.

Problems

We face problems every single day of our business life. Most of the problems in organizations arise because we are people. And people in your company have fears, hopes, their own way of working, different personalities, needs, and some things you will never know. As companies grow, the number of problems also rises, and its nature starts becoming a political battle. Try to avoid them.

Whenever something comes up, deal with it asap. Don’t defer it. In your small organization that some day will be a big player, if you start ignoring what happens, in the future you risk your competitive advantage and survival. Ignoring what surrounds you is not a good idea. Getting too personally involved isn’t either. But rather try to make the sources of the issue confident and self-sufficient to find a solution. This will make the difference in the future.

Remember: everyone is on the same path. Either you move as a group or you lose.
