What’s In This Episode:
What do you do when your team member quits? That’s the topic of discussion today. Plus, Jill and Brad get the best review ever.
It sucks when you do all the work to hire someone, then train them, and then they quit. Then you have to do their job in the interim, not to mention the morale dip. But there are also upsides.
The biggest advantage of having people quit is that it forces you to have systems. When people quit, it’s an opportunity for new ideas. Sometimes you can find someone even better. And in terms of cost, turnover gives you an opportunity to reset salaries to the market.
“You’re already making your marketing easier by specializing.” – Brad
Zach Ventresca is an Army veteran and serial entrepreneur. He’s having difficulty scaling his newest company, Command SEO, because it’s a very saturated market. Brad suggests that he tailors the SEO company to serve lead generation needs of the target market of his other company, which deals with window-washing and power-washing. Once that gets going, get into other niche markets.
“Write down the process you use and create a playbook for your role in this company.” – Jill
