Joe Casabona: Micah Rowland isn’t your everyday builder. He doesn’t build homes, cabinets, or even software. As CEO of Fountain, Micah builds people, teams, and processes. He offers a wealth of advice on building and scaling teams and the importance of documentation, but what we talk about here isn’t just applicable to building teams. It’s applicable to anybody, like you, building a business that will eventually scale up. This conversation is great, and I thought it was fantastic. Micah offers a lot of really good advice that I personally haven’t experienced yet, because I haven’t scaled up to a team, or I’m just starting to scale a team now. This is a really good one if you plan on hiring contractors or you plan on hiring employees, but if you plan on scaling up in any way, Micah’s advice here is fantastic. We’ll get into that in just a minute, but first a word from our sponsors.

Joe: Hey, everybody. Welcome to another episode of How I Built It, the podcast that asks, “How did you build that?” Today my guest is Micah Rowland, and he is the CEO of Fountain, which is some pretty interesting hiring software as we were talking about before we started recording. Today we’re going to be talking about scaling to 300 employees and the lessons learned in doing that. I know that a lot of you listening out there are solo or small businesses, but you’d like to scale, so hopefully, Micah can give us lots of great advice for that. Micah, thanks for joining me today.
Micah Rowland: Sure.
