Please learn from my mistakes.You’re Not a FamilyIn the Fast and the Furious movies, the main character always talks about how the people he works with are family.He says the word family dozens of times to remind everyone how important family is.But watch how many characters disappear between movies.If an actor gets into a contract dispute, they are immediately excised from this “family.”Even in fictional work environments, the family paradigm doesn’t work.And yet this was how I tried to build my first team.I had employees putting in less than an hour a week because they thought they were unfirable.Nobody is Above the LawTrying to hire friends and turn employees turned my business into a nightmare.Every month I was putting in more hours to earn enough to pay my staff.Their work was worth less tha...
