I'm in the same boat you are! H1B is not an option for small companies but I think our way is better anyway. The idea that you can find the "perfect fit" for your position while not paying a premium is ludicrous. If you want a great company you need to BUILD IT by building your people.

They are out there, you just don't want to pay for them. The are two answers to your problem that would be much better than hiring H1B:

1. Increase the offered pay until you get the qualified people you need. This is the best option when you don't have time for training and development.
2. Pick the best of those your now rejecting and train them. Many of them would be willing to work for below market rates while in training. Of course some of these will not work out but you will find some real gems as well.

After you have done this then H1B may be appropriate for the the really rare cases it was intended for.
