Employees - they are essential because they are responsible for the day-to-day activities of the business. (Water)
Specialists (contractors) - will guide you based on their trained area of expertise. While specialists may not participate daily, their guidance is invaluable to keep a business moving in the right direction. (Earth)
Investors - provide the funding. (Fire)
