Having built three companies with teams derived from sweat equity, I have seen great men and woman come and go. Not all possess the patience and financial freedom to invest their time into a start up.
In your case, it seems your product has attracted the attention of a few large retailers. This is can be utilized to build value in your offer to a potential candidate. I recently invested into a start-up based upon a potential contract they arranged with a large organization. When we approached a developer to help finish the application, he saw great value in our product and possible contract. His pay was negotiated in equity.
The best candidates possess well paying jobs and excess free time. If you can reach out to someone within your industry who will see the value in your product, it is possible to approach them in regard to a partnership. For example, "Mary works at Revlon as a VP of sales, after conducting research you find that she has interest in skin care. You then approach her with your idea and a proposal. If she sees value, not only will you benefit from her industry knowledge, she will also be more inclined to open up new doors for your company and product." I suggest researching executives within your industry and reach out to ones who meet your criteria via email. Ask for their advise and opinion. They will be more inclined to respond. When one responds, this is your opportunity to build interest in your product without trying to sell them.
Finally, do not forget about your local market. This includes your family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances. If you have a finished product and it is safe, sell it! I am sure your family and friends will have no problem promoting and purchasing your product, knowing that it will benefit your growth. More revenue could provide a pay check to a new team member.
I know it seems easier said then done, but I promise it is all possible utilizing your drive, determination and passion. I have faith in you.
