I have been working and thinking hard on how to build a strong team and my resolution is now to try all the options I have and make adjustments along the way. Part of the team will be working remotely but I need one person to work full-time on-site. He would shadow me and learn the tools of the trade, especially the subtle part of the business that can't be absorbed remotely.
The ultimate plan is to begin to hands-off the technical bit of the business gradually and have a team that can take up as much jobs that the marketing team brings. I would also be trying out virtual workers via Upwork. In the end, which ever works is what I would be doing more of. If the results from having a full-time on-site team member works fantastic, then I would hire more and the guy that gets this role will immediately become the team lead (hopefully).
Below are the Job Details. If you have someone okay with the pay and opportunities, and also young enough to absorb new knowledge and meet the requirements, please share with him.
