When I reflect back on how my career started as a business owner, three feelings stand out to me.

I felt stuck, alone, and out of control.

Good thing, I found a way to get myself out of that rut by building a team that can support me.

But it’s not just about hiring a team and hiring fast. 

It’s about hiring right. 

Discover the steps to building a world-class team. 

It might require a paradigm shift on your part, but trust me, it will make everything so worth it!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • A common hiring mistake business owners make
  • Why you need to define roles and key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Who should you hire first
  • Why your EA should be on top of your org chart
  • Identifying your non-negotiables right away
  • Recognizing your hire’s potential growth path
