“No small business owner knows what they need or want in the beginning.” – Jill
How do you hire people when trying to grow your company? Why is it so hard? We’re so busy, and on top of all of the things we’re doing, we now have to worry about the hiring process. Everyone’s looking for the quick and easy shortcut, but sadly there is none.
We’re also not great at recognizing what it is we need. A lot of small business owners think that if they just had someone else who was exactly like them, they’d be fine. But that doesn’t exist either (and you don’t really want that). Brad has a system for figuring out what he actually needs for the task at hand.
Also, you’ll probably need to spend more on hiring quality people. You can mitigate risk by hiring part-time to start out.
“Always be hiring.” – Brad
You can start collecting resumes with Google or some software so that when you’re ready to hire, the talent pool is there for you. You can also meet face-to-face with people to see how you feel about them, but it doesn’t mean you have to hire everyone you meet.
And once you have hired, if they’re not working, don’t feel bad about moving onto the next person.
