“Hire somebody that can do what you can’t.”

For the last 20 years I’ve been in business, as a CEO and entrepreneur, I have discovered what it takes to build successful companies. In the ever-evolving digital and business markets, it is not realistic to expect that you can be the best in every area of a company.

As a leader, it is important to realize not only your personal strengths and weaknesses, but also those of your team. As Gary Vaynerchuk says in the above video, “the fundamental answer to everything you’re not good at is to hire somebody that is good at it.” This has been my philosophy for as long as I can remember.

You don’t have to be the skill expert across every department within your company, but you should understand the craft well enough to know if your hire is doing a good job.

Building a diverse, dynamic and bright team is something I look for when building a business. Recognizing individual strengths and tailoring internal strategies to match your team’s innate capabilities creates a recipe for a company’s success.

Ego is a giant vulnerability when it comes to hiring and finding people who can do the stuff you’re weak at. The truth is, it is a good idea to hire someone who is better than you.

The moral of the story is: don’t let your own ego hold you back from hiring an all-star team that will help you succeed. Let them do what they do best. Sure, you can be powerful on your own, but forming a team of strong go-getters will make you unstoppable across the board.
