I was thinking of hiring a designer and engineer to handle product development, a supply chain/logistics/purchasing person and a sales person. Then outsource graphic design, marketing, warehousing/fulfillment and accounting. All the while doing production in Asia.
If you could start over, what positions do you think you need to keep in house and what could you outsource?
I would outsource repeatable tasks that don't need much/any creative decision making. Everything else I would keep in house. Now, I do plan to hire a CEO at some point, and they'll likely be remote, but I do consider that in-house.
Let me push back a bit on you - what part do you WANT to do? I've had hands on every part of my business, and although that may be the slower way to grow, I've learned everything and can now understand exactly who to hire and for what role (when the time comes).
Tell me more about your ideas (or PM if you don't want to share publicly)
