Hire Your Weakness
“As soon as you can afford it, hire your weaknesses.” – Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx
I heard this interesting quote on a news interview today, and Sara is clearly right on the target. She means that you look to hire people who fill in skills that you don’t have, where you’re weak.
Makes sense, right? But all too often we want to hire people who are like us. That makes us more comfortable, it makes us feel like we can “get more done” because things are going to work smoothly.
When two of you think the same, one of you is redundant.
Get out there and find people who are different, who fill in your gaps, who make you uncomfortable. Your business will be healthier for it.
