Team Building

Wondering if I need to change my blog name from “Good Angel” to “Good Founder” ;) So excited to be building BetterWorks with amazing people. I think maybe next week we’ll disclose a bit more about the team. But until then I just wanted to make a quick point here — It’s all about the team, right? But how do you find amazing people? Over the last week I’ve had a couple recruiters hit me up and while I won’t disparage the business of recruiting – it certainly has its merits – I’m not a big fan of recruiters in the early days of building your team. I can’t remember who said it recently, but as a founder you need to recruit your A+ folks. And if you can’t recruit people, maybe you should be asking yourself if you’re fit to be a good founder?

BetterWorks is “Making Work Rewarding”

Heads down on my new company BetterWorks – we’re “Making Work Rewarding” – more to follow. But, I’m simply jazzed to have an incredibly awesome cofounder, George Ishii (former adobe, paypal, Geni & Yammer cofounder). Incredible dude and I’m blessed to have people like George in my life. I’m constantly asked “What are you working on?” – people man, it’s all about awesome people. Yes, I’m out there doing the sand hill roadshow and even that’s a real blast watching people’s eyes light up. But #1 for me…it’s all about awesome people who love our vision.

So, if you’re an A+ player and want to join a fun group of folks launching something beautiful and profound here in LA hit us up. George and I are looking for killer technical talent (experience in B2B platforms ideal), and looking for some sales & service professionals with strong SME / local & online sales experience.

And yes, we’re still being a little bit “stealthish” – not to mess with any of you but honestly we’re heads down and driving towards an incredible vision that we hope will effect the lives of six millions business owners and seventy-million employees. We want to change the nature of the workforce and we’re both excited to follow our dreams thanks to all of our awesome friends and cohorts.
