I founded a fintech startup in Detroit suburbs, have a small team built, great early validation of our product, and starting to expand quickly…but I don’t think I’m cut out to be CEO.
I’m tempted to hire a rockstar talented individual to come on board, take over most of my responsibilities, and reduce my hours/involvement/stress significantly. I’m confident that said rockstar has just as great of chance of making us successful. Should I hire him and step aside? I’m even willing to part with some of my personal equity to give to him.
