Specifically, I want to find people for:
- Teammates to create an internet business (not necessarily the same one, we could support each other on separate businesses as well)
- People to help me with various aspects of my business, in higher- and lower-level professional capacities
- And actually, creative endeavors, other projects, etc.
In Robert Allen`s system - http://www.oneminutemillionaire.com/tools/hots.asp - I am a "hare" - big on new ideas, fresh concepts, and the big picture - and would love to surround myself with other types, but often find myself attracted to other hares.
I put an ad out on Craigslist last year that I had a POTENTIAL job, and got LOTS of responses (amazing how quickly people will respond to the possibility that a stream of income has already been created). A few of the people seemed downright crazy. Several seemed really neat, but never panned out. Everyone wanted to "sell" themselves--almost as if it were more important to be "the one," rather than finding out what the "job" would actually have been about!
So, I basically encountered the classic "it`s hard to find good help" question. And also, the "how do I find other self-directed people to work with, who also enjoy collaboration" question.
I would appreciate any perspectives you might have, in particular anything based on your actual experience in achieving this or a similar goal.
