The fastest (and easiest) non-family hire I’ve ever made was when I convinced a client of mine to come work for me at my new startup.
He was looking for something new, and had exactly the skills I was looking for. It took longer for me to convince him that this would be the right move than to actually get him put on the payroll.
He’s still at that company, years later, long after I departed, and he’s survived through multiple rounds of layoffs and cutbacks and employee restructuring, so I’d say he was a successful hire for the company!
