Hey guys, just wanted to say, don't skip out on watching Martin's hiring videos (at least every once in a while), since I found them "educational" in a way also, especially if you one day plan to also hire.

I also thought it was really awesome that Martin now delegates the "project management/ASO" work to someone, since this helps to create a "business that runs itself," instead of requiring constant maintenance.  I once heard on a podcast, I think, a wise thought that, if you have built a business, but it relies on you to function/will or else it will "fall apart/stop" without your constant maintenance, then you've actually built yourself a job.

Martin, can you also expand (make a video maybe [smile] ) : after how many employees (programmers) is it prudent to get a manager? Also, what is the proper ratio of artists/programmers? Can you talk about the "strategy/ordering" of hiring different types of employees?
What are the "financial risks" of hiring? (for example, I assume not every employee works out/becomes profitable, how many months on average does it take to fully integrate an employee/ start seeing profits from that employee - considering games usually need a few weeks/months to "gain traction", and not all later get a lot of downloads )?

Also, are there any mistakes/things any new entrepreneur looking to hire for the first time should be aware of? What would you recommend as a minimum budget? Did some initial "assumptions" you had about how everything was going to work change?

Its a nice video too but the videos i enjoyed the most so far on his channel were the videos were he shows his revenue stats and talks in detail about drops, hights etc.

He should do a revenue Video on the 1st of every Month or so, so you can follow his success [smile]
