Idea vs Talent

Frequently I get a call or an email from someone I know who has an idea for a new product, business or service. They think it’s a great idea but usually have no idea where to go from there.

If I wanted to start a new business and had the choice of a great idea (or ideas) or having a great team of people around me, I would pick the great team every time.

An idea without the people to implement the idea usually doesn’t amount to anything.

A great team, without a great idea, will usually be able to come up with a great idea in a short period of time.

If you want to do something great, make sure you have the right people to execute. Once you have the right people wonderful things can happen.

I would choose great people over a great idea every day. How about you?

Have a great day!
