Do CEOs have personal assistants?
MAY 22, 2019
Deal with office issues, help with basic functional QA, greet partners, help with travel drama, fix a marketing website, whatever it is. I think a CEO, or at least the founders, should have leverage as soon they can afford it. In both my start-ups, an “assistant” (office+paperwork+EA) was literally the first non-founder+engineering team I hired. It gave us a ton of leverage. Since then, I’ve mostly done without. I think that has been a mistake. View original question on quora.
