“A micro-manager doesn’t trust his people and seeks to control every single detail and decision; he believes that ultimately, only he will make the right choices.” – Jim Collins

When the time comes to hire your first employees, choose carefully.  The tendency is to hire people you like that are similar to you.  Culture is important.  But err on the side of skills and experience and let your people do their job.  Share information.  Be open and transparent. Show trust.  Communicate the vision, not the method.  Inspire, then get out of the way.
