How To Know When To Move On As A Founder, with James Mitra 

“There are so many opportunities out there for Founders. If you decide to step away, I can promise you there will be lots of people that will want to hire you.” 

This week’s bite-sized 40 Minute Mentor episode, is all about knowing when to stay as a Founder and when to leave – something we talk a lot about with Founders, including in our upcoming episode with Graham Hobson

Over the next 4 minutes, James shares his insights on what Founders need to think about when deciding whether to transition to CEO or stepping away to pastures new and the many opportunities that lie ahead for previous Founders.
