Don’t move. Wait until you are so packed you can’t fit another single computer and desk in there. Moving spends money, distracts you from your business, and gives you a false feeling of success. Don’t move until you are forced.

Don’t hire people. You don’t need an org chart until everyone at the business is working 10 hours a day and working on weekends. Then hire one person. Then repeat. Try to hire people smarter than you. Else, the culture of your business will start to slip.
