  • 0:00 - 0:03
    Another key resource are people.
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    We sometimes use the fancy word of human resources or HR
  • 0:06 - 0:10
    and I kind of think of people in a start up as two separate categories.
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    One is finding qualified employees. The other is for you to find them.
  • 0:14 - 0:19
    How do you find mentors or teachers or coaches or advisers for you.
  • 0:19 - 0:21
    What's the difference between all of these?
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    Well let me start with the last first.
  • 0:23 - 0:28
    Mentors, teachers, and coaches advance your personal career.
  • 0:28 - 0:33
    If you want to learn a specific subject you find a teacher
  • 0:33 - 0:40
    but if you want to hone specific skills or reach an exact goal, I suggest you hire a coach.
  • 0:40 - 0:45
    That is a specific subject as a teacher, specific skills as a coach.
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    So for example if you want to learn something more about ??? architectures,
  • 0:49 - 0:52
    You can bring in a teacher or take a class
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    but if you want to hone specific skills like how to create great presentation
  • 0:55 - 1:00
    or how to manage people, you hire a coach but the one that sometimes founders forget
  • 1:00 - 1:05
    is that you want to get smarter, better over your career.
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    You want to find someone who cares enough about you to be a mentor.
  • 1:09 - 1:12
    Mentors are very different from teachers and coaches.
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    Mentors are actually a two way street.
  • 1:16 - 1:19
    The only people who tend to want to help you are those who personally think
  • 1:19 - 1:24
    they could actually learn something from you and then they simply liking you.
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    So most of you in your career would have to go on to be mentors
  • 1:27 - 1:31
    but think about the type of people who you've encountered in your career.
  • 1:31 - 1:37
    Implicitly you have been giving something to them while they have been giving something to you.
  • 1:37 - 1:41
    The last category in mentors, coaches, teachers are advisers.
  • 1:41 - 1:46
    Now advisers are people you need to help advance your company success.
  • 1:46 - 1:51
    Mentors, teachers, and coaches know about your personal success as a founder
  • 1:51 - 1:55
    but advisers really kind of bring generic advise.
  • 1:55 - 1:59
    Sometimes to you but also to your VPs and your staff etc.
  • 1:59 - 2:02
    So what you want to have is experienced advise
  • 2:02 - 2:05
    to help you figure out whether your vision is a hallucination
  • 2:05 - 2:11
    but getting specific you want to put together as early as possible an advise report
  • 2:11 - 2:19
    and that's really the idea of expanding your circle of accumulated wisdom as just your investment.
  • 2:19 - 2:27
    A mistake that founders make the first time is thinking that ??? or ??? investors ???.
  • 2:27 - 2:30
    Yes they are your advisers but they are also your boss
  • 2:30 - 2:35
    and so you want to be very careful about limiting your advise to just that circle
  • 2:35 - 2:39
    and they may not have this specific domain expertise you need.
  • 2:39 - 2:43
    So make sure you're expanding your series of advisers available to your company
  • 2:43 - 2:48
    and typically that's done by offering them a small percentage of equity
  • 2:48 -
    in exchange for some of their time.
