This is something that needed to be addressed!
I need to be clear about this because its a practice that I am seeing. When someone starts to have success and then they create or promote a product to sell to their own Team or the team of others‚ that is a predatory practice called cross-recruiting.
In most companies it is grounds for termination. And while some have more flexibility with that it should be understood that it is not okay. When you grow to a place of authority then market to new people with your skills‚ there are plenty out there that need what you have.
Think about how that would feel if someone is doing that to you‚ it is not a feel good policy and will leave many bad feelings all around…
