1. Keep it simple.
Hire less. Do less. One person can change the trajectory at this stage
2. Measure everything.
Start with yourself & take care of yourself. Next measure your business metrics & take care of your people
3. Your Team is your company.
The company you keep is the company you build. Embrace their emotions and help them succeed due to them and not in spite of them. Grant equity. Make it liquid. Autonomy, mastery, and purpose are your new creed.
That being said, lying and politics can not be tolerated.
There’s more you can do.
But should you really?
