As times go on in a start up company you start to see who is with you in regards to pushing the company forward and who is there for their own selfish reasons. Those people need to be weeded out and seen out the door. The people that are with you through thick and thin are the ones you need to keep with you because they are the ones that you can depend upon. Those individuals that do not take responsibility for the well being of everyone in the company but are only in the company for themselves are destined to be alone and broke by themselves. Because even if those individuals were bought out of the company they still received money that was not earned and they don't know how to manage the money they were given.
