We’ve all heard it, and yet, we all continue to limit our focus of being the best we can as individuals. I’m trying something new and radical, at least for me. Yet, every article you read, book, blog post, tweet, which originates from those ‘successful few’ seem to resonate the same message: “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”.
Last year, I spent an aggregate of 3,500 hours developing. 3,500! That’s a full time job and a half. And at the end of the day, there is still a world of knowledge I haven’t even touched, Node.JS, MVC, Entity-Framework, etc, etc, etc.
Jack of all trades, expert of none
I realize now, there is just no way for one person to be proficient at everything, or even a few things. So for the next several weeks, my plan is the exact opposite of what I’ve been doing all along. I’m going to build my team. So far, I’ve already met a marketer, a native iOS and Android developer, a front end expert, advertising veteran, and business development professionals. Sounds like a good start. All of this information will go on my company site. Profiles, photos, portfolios. And once we start working together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.
Together Each Achieves More
