What’s In This Episode:
Brad’s got an employee problem. He’s got a great guy, company wouldn’t be what it is without him, but there are some performance issues. He’s late on assignments… basically, he’s the worst.
Also, Brad is talking about himself.
“The type of people who become business owners are not very good at getting things done.” – Brad
Brad’s gotta handle some things on his own. He hired employees to help him, but he still doesn’t get all the things he needs to get done in a timely manner.
Jill wants to know why he has to finish one task to move onto another. Maybe, she suggests, that’s not how he works.
They talk about what it means to be the boss, how employers are generally bad employees (or not), and how maybe he should fire himself from the tasks he’s not doing.
“I guess that’s how the Kardashians are famous.” – Jill
Producer Saul turns the tables and asks about publicity. Is there such a thing as bad publicity in podcasting?
Brad thinks there’s such a thing as bad press, but people who hate you aren’t part of that. Jill wonders if a review like that deters someone from listening. Saul says, if anything, it might make someone more interested.
