That's the whole point and that's where the biggest difficulties are coming from.
You see, that's exactly what I mean when talking about the expectations management. I see this a lot and I've seen that within my own company, too. Everyone is super busy. When you're so busy, of course the expectation is that, okay, let's cover this part and I will have more time to do my other stuff. And the actual thing is that it's not. We just have to face the reality.
So, if you hire someone and you're busy like 10 hours a day, so you will be literally busy 12-14 or 16. And that's what we have to set up as an expectation from our side, so that the amount of work and time spent will actually increase, but not decrease on the same things. Because you will literally have to duplicate, replicate those things, to explain that to other person. But it is an investment into the future.
And that's what we have to understand - to admit that, to accept that, and to invest that time, because those are harsh 2-3 weeks of time going through the onboarding process. If it's actually done and the time is invested, so then, of course, it will repay back with a really huge release in the daily job.
The only problem is that if it's an actual growing startup wich generates demand for its product in the market, the team is expanding, so they as founders have to be ready to do that all the time. Because you just onboarded one person and spent like 2-3 weeks of time with them. Of course, they will require some time later on as well. And then you're hiring another one, then another one and another one. That's what we have to be ready to do, you know. So even today with 200 people, I don't spend time with them like those 2 weeks, because there are other people doing that, but I still spend some time with them. I do have those meetings with them, like general meetings, explaining the history, telling about the story of Ondato, how we came into this sector, what we are aiming to achieve, what are our goals, what is the culture that we have and all the stuff.
