Preventing the bozo explosion
Years ago while I was trying to figure out how to get my first company off the ground I read Guy Kawasaki’s book, “The Art of Start”. One concept that stuck with me was “preventing the bozo explosion”. The theory states that “A” players hire “A+” players, but “B” players hire “C”, “C” hire “D”, which ultimately leads to a company full of bozos.
Makes sense, but I’ve always struggled...
