Many of us know that finding and developing the talent for your company is a challenge. Come meet Paul Kwiatkowski of GroupRaise, the Founder who is successfully doing just that, right now, in Houston.
In May we spoke with Kerry Rupp about successful funding strategies. Hypothetically speaking, your business has raised money, NOW WHAT?
Money is a Means to an End.
It's Time To Master the Tao of Talent
What are you going to spend it on? TALENT!
— Building/refining your product & services? Talent.
— Expanding your marketing? Talent.
— Building your team? Talent.
Your Employees are a form of talent. Your Investors are a form of Talent. Your Advisors and Vendors are forms of Talent. Your Customers are a form of Talent. Your Community is a form of Talent. It appears that Éverything, in some shape or form, comes down to Talent!
