• This is a real problem faced by many early stage bootstrapping startups, I recruited inexperienced individuals for my first startup and end up spending much of my time training them. On hindsight, that might not be the best recruitment decision but a bootstrapping startup with limited investment doesn't have a choice.

    Once the startup grew I was able to recruit best talent available for money, Though I didn't spend time training them my time managing them only increased.

    On the other hand there's another sub-problem related to this - Introvert CEO who don't want to engage with the employees.

    I guess solutions for both involve improving the efficiency of hiring a people person who can do things which we don't want to do.
