(Concluded from Part 2, yesterday.)
After the Reval – Hire Your Staff
Archangel Michael: Then you return and you begin to hire your staff and in the meantime you also have somebody doing some of the very basic recruiting.
Steve: So, I hire a Publisher for the Golden Age of Gaia. I hire a President for the Michelangelo Fund. Do I go with the [XXX Bank’s] family office or…?
AAM: Yes, that is good enough.
Steve:… For the interval?
AAM: … For the interval. The new financial institutions are going to emerge. [XXX Bank] are not stellar, but they are ethical.
Steve: Is it accurate to think that the people brought to me as a family office might have been brought by you for a more permanent role?
AAM: There will be transition people and permanent people. What you can rely on, sweet one, is that I am not going to bring you anyone who is not of ethical behaviour.
Steve: Thank you. That reassurance means a lot to me.
So, now I’ve hired my team. Once I hire my team, they hire the next layer. I don’t hire their team, right?
AAM: That is correct. (1)
Steve: And then I come back [from a month-long vacation] and I begin by contacting an executive search agency and hiring someone to head up the Michaelangelo Fund.
AAM: You return, having given/made a contact before you go away for a, can we say, an executive realtor to locate your new home. So that you come back and you have half a dozen places to look at and make your selection.
You don’t want to be hiring your staff and be in the process of moving. So the move will be taken care of very quickly.
Steve: Okay, now I’ve moved into my new home and I’ve located an executive recruiting firm and I’m now looking for a head for the Michelangelo Fund and the Golden Age of Gaia.
AAM: Your first priorities are twofold: The president of the Michaelangelo Fund and your personal assistant. You need that personal assistant as quickly as possible.
Steve: Okay, maybe I should be just concentrating on the personal assistant….
AAM: No, you need both because your president will be involved in the hiring of everybody else. (2)
That’s probably enough.
These are pages from an offline manual I’ve written for myself that covers a raft of topics to do with running a very large humanitarian/philanthropic group of companies.
If I never spoke to Michael again, I’d still have this wealth of counsel to turn to on every aspect of my operations.
If I woke up tomorrow and discovered it was all a dream, it has been so rewarding to have gotten this far with everything. What a wonderful dream it’s been.
