2. The talent for building things

3. Common sense
Common sense is of vital importance to the business owner, because it is essential for the business team to make good decisions and, therefore, to be able to delegate work safely.
“Hiring someone untrustworthy, just because they have a great degree or experience, is a mistake. Even when there is a lot of work to be done, it almost always ends up paying more in the long run when you have to fix the problems they cause.” Elon Musk decides that an untrustworthy person may not be ideal for his company.
Finally, the millionaire and astronaut’s recommendation is: “All you need to look for as a Head of Human Resources is proof that the candidate has exceptional ability and if he or she has any achievement or triumph to back it up.”
