Well, you’ve decided you JUST HAVE to have a new employee (you’re positive, right? You’re sure you can afford them, right?). Well then, you should absolutely just hire the first person you see. Done. Article over. Wait…. You want more? You’re saying to yourself “I paid good money to read this blog!! I deserve at least 700 words!”. Well Ok then…. read on: One of the crucial mistakes I made was hiring too quickly (both part time and full time employees). Every time I needed someone, I felt like it was an emergency. I needed someone NOW. That was my first mistake. I had big dreams in my business, but for whatever reason I didn’t look ahead to the future far enough to anticipate the need for more employees. So, when it was time to hire, I didn’t spend nearly as much time seeking out the best candidates. How can you find the best employees? First, stop treating them like employees. You have a mission. You’re going into battle every day. You can’t win by yourself… you need a team. Start thinking of your employees as a TEAM. YOU need to build a TEAM.
