Planning is important, the structure is also important.

In my opinion, you should start with your team, and then move to the next step of planning.

Starting a startup alone

When you are going solo and you are exploring your idea, you should be very clear about what you want to do.

Building the team

When I started working on my startup idea, I was not sure whether it would work out or fail but I knew I had something unique about the idea so people would like it once they know about it.

Technical expertise

This is your core team who is going to make sure that you can deliver what you promised and also help you build the product.

Job descriptions

The second component is not so much about who they are but rather what they do, and that’s their job description.

Personal Skills

The third component is personal skills. This goes hand in hand with the first one.

Hiring Process

Hiring is a very critical part of any startup, especially when it is just you and your idea because if you hire wrong people then there isn’t much left to do in terms of trying to find the right one because the team which you have is more or less your team for a long time (depending on how much money you have).
