About this Episode

Ben never wants to stop working on his startup company, Tuple. Despite some stress, it’s successful and satisfying. However, team members may be added to take over some of Ben’s responsibilities. Based on the book, The Great CEO Within, Ben continues to provide feedback and to document standard operating procedures, policies, and other information to handle the challenge of knowledge management.

Derrick emphasizes the importance of documentation, support, and smooth transitions. You don’t know what other people don’t know. Derrick wants to be doing what he’s doing with his startup, StaticKit, but is feeling weary and may be willing to eventually step aside. While attending a TinySeed Retreat, he was reminded of how face-to-face meetings are worthwhile, and it’s good to surround yourself with successful people who share similar experiences.
