How to build a Boredom Company article 1.
Find the right title and subtitle The title should be interesting and have a purpose.
A subtitle should have a good description, and be brief.
“You can’t build a profitable company with just the title and no real information about how you’re going to make money.”
Choose a brand You should select a brand you can find on LinkedIn.
That will help you to find people to work with.
“The people that we work with tend to be interesting.
They’re people that are interested in something.
They want to know more about the product and about the company.”
If you have a company that’s not really related to your niche, you should consider other options.
“If you don’t have a name that is interesting to people, I don’t think it’s going to be a good fit.”
Find a CEO You should look for a CEO who is willing to share their expertise.
You should also look for someone who has experience running a large company, and has a long history of successful businesses.
“A lot of CEOs that have succeeded are very good at making money.”
Be honest You should try to make sure you are honest with the person you’re interviewing with.
If you’re not honest, they may be skeptical about you.
“I’m not going to tell you I can make you money, but I will tell you how to get started.”
Ask for a salary Your interviewer should ask you for a realistic salary.
“When I interview with you, I ask, is this a realistic job that will pay you more than $50,000 a year?”
This will give you a sense of how much money you can make.
Find someone to work for You should search for a company you can work for.
“Asking someone to do a job is not going in the right direction.”
“If we don’t find someone to join us, it’s not going anywhere.”
Give your interview a title You should use a headline that’s memorable.
“We’re building a company, so we’re building something that’s a bit like a book.”
Use keywords In your interview, look for keywords.
“Why are you asking me these questions?
Is there a chance that I could use your company to help me do something else?”
Create a landing page “You’re going for an audience that’s interested in your company, right?”
Use a search tool You should take the time to use a search engine.
“It’s a good idea to do an internal search before we start searching for someone.
If we can’t find the right person in the first couple of searches, we’ll start to miss out on potential clients.”
Write a cover letter “Write something that you’re comfortable with.
It should have your name on it, and your job description.
It’s important that you have all of these information so you can be clear and concise.”
Make a resume Write a resume that describes your background, your skills, and any relevant experience.
“Use your resume to describe your personality, and how you plan to use your skills.”
Write about yourself You should write about yourself.
“Write about what you’re passionate about, what you value in your life.
Write that down, so that you can keep it in your head for when you’re working on your application.”
Be transparent You should always be transparent about your application.
“Make sure you tell your interviewer what you want to say, and what you can do.
That’s very important.”
Give the interviewer your CV If you don, it could be a huge mistake.
“Be very specific and detailed about what skills you’re interested in.
If they’re interested, tell them you’ve studied it, have a portfolio, have done a couple of interviews, and have some experience.”
Give a copy of your resume You should give a copy to your interviewer.
“This is a great way to keep track of what you’ve learned, what your strengths are, and so forth.”
Get some feedback You should get feedback from the people who work for you.
“If you’ve never done anything like this before, this is really a great time to start.”
“I like that you talk about the process.
It also gives me a sense that I’m doing something right.”
Keep in touch With your application, make sure to contact the people that you’ve interviewed.
“Have them contact you, and if they haven’t already, email them back to let them know that you got their feedback.”
