“If you dream of starting or growing a business, your most important roles as a leader are recruiting and establishing culture. NOTHING is more important. This book provides a priceless how-to guide to enable your success. Read it and follow it.”— Peter H. Diamandis, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Abundance and Bold; founder of Singularity University and XPRIZE

“Dave Carvajal understands that the real issue of talent today isn’t about skill sets, which can be developed. And it isn’t about feeding the status quo. It’s about finding people who buy into a vision, and who have the passion and persistence it takes to be future-facing. For companies that believe in the importance of innovation (and that should be everyone), Hire Smart from the Start is the essential recruiting handbook.”— David Sable, Global CEO, Y&R

“This is the most important book I have ever read on how to create business leverage by recruiting and hiring well. I wish I had known these strategies fifty bad hires ago! Dave’s wisdom and insights on finding and keeping A-players changes everything!”— KEITH J. CUNNINGHAM, creator of Keys to the Vault, speaker, author, and entrepreneur

“99% of success is how you communicate, how you lead, how you give, how you share. This is a difficult path, beset with obstacles from the beginning. Hire Smart from the Start is THE guide to finding the right and necessary people to go on that path with you.” — James Altucher, bestselling author of Choose Yourself and other books; entrepreneur, venture capitalist, hedge fund manager, and podcaster

“Your enterprise is only as good as your team. If you can’t recruit them, you have nothing. This book helps you find them, and inspire them to join the team.”— Brian Swette, President, Sweet Earth; former COO eBay, CMO Pepsi, and Chairman Burger King; Director Shutterfly, Jamba Juice

“Carvajal’s strategic hiring process—laid out thoughtfully and methodically—is a valuable blueprint for entrepreneurs at any stage.” — Jeffrey Bussgang, General Partner, Flybridge Capital; Professor, Harvard Business School; author of Entering StartUpLand and Mastering the VC Game
