Top Signs (Green Lights) You're Interviewing a High Achiever
First off, did I just blow your mind about not hiring an entrepreneur?
"But Klyn...I'm an entrepreneur and look how great my company is!!" I can hear you say.
Right...but how great were you to your last employers?
You did your own thing.
You couldn't be managed.
You worked for them and dreamt of "getting out".
You weren't 100% in love with the path your life was on.
So you dreamed of how to change it.
Probably lost a few sales here and there but were using your employer for education instead of a long-term match.
Did you listen to directions well?
Sorry. But most times, hiring an entrepreneur for a smaller, entrepreneurial company -is a bad idea.
You can hire an intra-preneur. That's millennial talk for someone who likes saying they are entrepreneurial but doesn't have the kind of "grit" to build a company.
