Build the team

If you’re an entrepreneur, one of the highest leverage activities you can do is find good people to work with, build a good relationship, and keep working with them. 

You don’t need to be hiring full-time to start doing this. 

People can be available in all capacities, for all sorts of roles. (In fact, many people prefer freelancing or offering their expertise as a consultant to working full-time.)

You don’t need to start with referrals.

Write up a job description. 

Then post it to a job board.

“When you have the right people working on things, it happens immediately. I could put together a Sunday Service with 20 songs by tomorrow,” Ye says.
