      Finding the best
    • Page 21
      • Identify your weaknesses so you know which aspects of the organisation you need help with
      • Decide whether your organisation will benefit most by hiring paid advisers or by taking equity-incentivised employees or business partners
      • If you are offering equity to a potential partner, avoid ‘one-trick’ ponies. In other words, make sure he or she is an all-round commercial adviser rather than just being good at a specific task.
      • Ask other small-business owners for recommendations on external advisers

    • Page 22
      • If you are a member of a trade body, find out if it has any recommended advisers
      • Always ask for credentials and take references. If you are appointing someone to help grow your business, make sure they have a proven track record doing it for themselves
      • Ensure the culture and chemistry are right. Every organisation has its own style of working and will do best with an adviser who shares that style
      • Ensure the person you have taken on to help is capable of growing with you as the organisation expands and don’t be afraid to part company with them of they are not
