Seems like a solid strategy for early stage startups. I've heard similar feedback from my friend's venture backed startups that they should sell on their own for as long as possible until they absolutely need to start hiring sales people.

Great article, NorCalTech! I bet that startups would find this very useful. It's very crucial to hire the correct people, that being said, find someone that's not there to only do a job but someone who shares your values and passion and someone who have the initiative to help your business grow.
