If you want to maximize your chances of success, you have to surround yourself with key people who will be able to complement and back you up on a day-to-day basis. Assess your skills and your needs, and then decide whether you need to hire a professional (notary, lawyer, accountant, etc.), hire staff or contract out some tasks. You can also turn to a mentor, set up a board of directors, or put together a skilled management team.

“In the heat of the action, entrepreneurs can all too easily put off assessing their business’ HR needs. List your operation’s needs and then your own skills. That way, you will be able to meet your requirements in terms of both the labour force and the specialists who will support you in different areas related to your activities.”

Cover your weak spots
Seek complementarity rather than similarity. Focus on the people who will be able to compensate for your weaknesses so you can concentrate on your strengths.
It will not do you much good to surround yourself with people who always share your opinion. You will be better off hiring strategists who can offer you innovative ideas.
Once you have assessed your needs, remember to consider the following professionals as part of your team: the accountant, the accounts manager at your financial institution, the lawyer and even your key suppliers. Work in partnership with them, and make sure you keep them informed about your projects and challenges. They will feel like they have a stake in your success, and will be more available to support you.
Consider contracting out
Some specialized tasks deserve to be contracted out. Your company might benefit from integrating reliable contractors into your team, people whom you can trust.
Prosperity resides in the diversity of men, women, cultures and experiences. Your team’s diversity can become a competitive advantage by helping you to better understand the customs and beliefs of clients in a wide range of markets.
