Business Valuation and Hiring Strategies with Charbel Zreik. E433

Today we bring you part 2 of our conversation with Charbel!

Today Charbel shares his insights on starting and running a business, self-financing, and navigating cash constraints while growing a company. Here are some of these Golden Boulders:

Start with the end in mind: Charbel emphasizes the importance of setting clear goals for your business. Define your customer base, sales, profit, and valuation targets to build towards them effectively.

Take calculated risks: Generating value and achieving success often requires stepping out of your comfort zone. Don't be afraid to take risks and invest in your ideas. Separate a designated amount of money for investment and don't be overly concerned with short-term fluctuations.

Build a great team: Hiring the right people is crucial for your business's growth. 

Charbel suggests starting with part-time or short-term arrangements to evaluate candidates' performance before committing to long-term contracts. Embrace a mindset of expecting some failures while targeting a success rate of around 60%.
