The talent shortage is a complete myth. There are plenty of developers and designers. In fact, there is a surplus of hackers and creators working on things that aren't nearly as exciting as your startup. So why can't you get them?
It's simple: You suck at hiring.
Hiring means marketing a product - a job at your compnay. This product needs the right branding that makes sense for its intended audience. You need to use multiple channels and track your metrics. Hiring isn't "selling" or some black magic wooing that only recruiters can understand. It's being remarkable, finding product/market fit, and doing your homework--all the things that startup gurus told you to do when you had a customer in mind, just applied to a hire. Learn how to turn your startup into a hiring machine and get the best people possible--because having the best people is key to your success.
