What you can learn from her: Williams on risk: “Having a fantastic team has made my work a lot easier. But building that team was not always easy. I had to get away from the entrepreneur’s curse of being so busy that you hire out of desperation, which leads to hiring the wrong individuals and is not beneficial to anyone. I’ve become a lot more intentional about the culture I’m establishing, and that means hiring right."
