Building the Perfect Team

Bernard Moon (via The Startup Biz:

Partner with people you trust. My first piece of advice for any budding entrepreneur, and one I always overstate is, “Trust is essential.” If you have any doubts about a potential partner, clear the air or steer clear completely. As John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers puts it, “You must ask, ‘Are these the people I want to be in trouble with for the next 5, 10, 15 years of my life?’ Because as you build a new business, one thing’s for sure: You will get into trouble.”
