When you think about becoming an entrepreneur – just having your first idea can be challenging, creating a strategy can be a huge headache as well, but nothing compared to the stress of having everything set and not being able to find the right people to execute on it.
I am not talking about finding employees – that’s something everybody can be. I am talking about #achievers.
