Surround yourself with smarts

Fred Wilson’s post a couple of days ago is so bang on! I specially like his advice for help:
“A CEO/founder must surround themselves with people who they like, trust, and can lower their guard with.  The best leaders have a "kitchen cabinet" of people they can be completely honest with and who they rely on for advice, counsel, and support.” Amen to that. Surround yourself with smart people, smarter than you (because that’s what you will need) and populate your “kitchen cabinet” because your team (and I will use Fred’s words here) “is looking to you for answers, for leadership, for direction, and on top of that, they want it with a smile and a pat on the back.”
