Support Team SOS: Not your mama’s hiring tips.
Tell me if this sounds familiar.
“My gut says that I’m not really getting my needs met, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s just me. What if I’m wrong?”
First of all, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this conversation with myself, in more areas than one.
If you’re having that conversation about your support team – let me tell you that you are probably not wrong.
I’ve seen many business owners desperately regretting ignoring their gut while tying themselves in knots trying to make something work when it’s not the right fit.
If you’re doing it right now, you already know I’m talking to you.
And if you’ve got it going on in a personal relationship too, you better believe you’re attracting that in your team as well.

“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.”
This is great advice. However, in order to see who they are showing themselves to be, you have to have a clear perception of things.
We’ve got to see things clearly to attract the support we need. After all, wouldn’t you love to take a vacation while your business runs itself?
Here are some quick hiring tips around getting a clear perception and acting on it.
1. Stop feeling bad.
2. Hire for where you’re going.
3. Hire slow, fire fast.
4. Direct conversation is king.
5. Don’t hire someone you need to train.
6. Don’t try to get a deal.
7. Believe them the first time.
8. Break up with your parents.
