Its not loyalty OR meritocracy

Some people think merit comes before loyalty.

Choose the best man (or woman) for the job rather than the one who you know has your back.

Ignore these people.

Loyalty IS merit.

Startups are about speed.

Speed is about trust.

Trust is about loyalty.

If you want to move fast, you need people you can trust.

Forget about “best man for the job”.

Loyalty comes first.
