Having the right people on the team is the key to winning.
In 1985, the Big East conference in the NCAA featured the best teams in the country. Georgetown was the favorite to win the college basketball championship. They lost to the lowest seeded team in the tournament of 64 college basketball programs.
How could this happen? Georgetown seemed to have the better players. What went wrong? Nothing! Villanova, a small Pennsylvania college had the perfect players for their program to defeat the mighty Hoyas.
Small business owners need to take a page out of the Villanova book. They sometimes cry about the big companies dominating the world of business. Use the Wildcats strategy of just getting the right people on your team. Don’t worry about your competition. Play your best game with your players!
