It takes guts for a founding visionary entrepreneur to step aside and hand the reigns over to another. Ultimately the vision has to be more important than any individual, even the source of that vision. Of course the key now is getting just the right CEO. As a CEO myself (and no I won’t be putting my hand up!) my advice is to find someone who is not so much a visionary as a strategist. More of an organizational and strategic technician. The key to scaling an organization is in the deployment of resources: in particular creating the right environment and structures ready to meet the planned growth. So for me, I.T expertise is minor to this, what they need is a first class strategist.

clogs. Other papers that operate well include poster board, matt board, and also regular coloured pencil paper.
frequently with standard sharpeners even the actual load of the pencil itself might power the bottom of the pencil to by sharpened more, which renders a
strong uneven line. Shave the wood away with the blade, moving the knife
outwards away after your body.
