There are often complications beset upon the path towards success when one decides to make their own way as an entrepreneur and build their own business from the ground up, in the process building their own success from scratch.
At times these obstacles may stall success or even completely derail others if care is not exercised appropriately.
Though, these complications can be avoided if a new entrepreneur receives proper guidance from those that have tried their hand at the game and found success themselves.
That being said, it is quite lucky for all new entrepreneurs that Robert Deignan is willing to offer a bit of advice on what to do in order to achieve success within the venture towards building a business from the ground up.
So, what would be one bit of advice that Robert Deignan would give to those that would follow in his path towards success?
Well, never hire or work with your family or friends as it can often lead to problems down the line.
That doesn’t mean that those close to you will cause problems, instead, Robert Deignan used the example that personal relationships such as those may make it hard to make the decisions that need to be made in terms of growing your business and ensuring you find success. For example, if times become lean and the company needs to downsize in order to make it through a particularly tight quarter or two, it may be difficult to do so if you have hired family as it would strain the relationship.
So, Robert Deignan offers that as entrepreneur it is best to keep your personal world and your professional world seperate in terms of who you hire as it can often be more of a detriment than a benefit.
When asked if personally that was a risk that he would be wiling to take, given the benefit of being able to spend more time with close relationships if sharing a company with them, Robert Deignan responded that he would not as it could possibly lead to straining relationships in which he places immense value.
So, there you have it. Maybe an outside hire is the best option for success when it comes to hiring family.
