Starting a business can be a daunting task. Having a business can be daunting, even though you went through the basic steps of starting it. Businesses have to grow and develop, otherwise what is the point? Stagnation works, but it only works if you have enough and if the market and world is never going to change, at least in your lifetime.

Why not search for new talent? Even if you do not need new talent, being updated on what people are up to in the world of business is a good idea.
