Our very own Wade Harman interviewed Connor this past week for an article on Jay Baer’s popular Convince & Convert blog.
Connor talked with Wade about the need for caution when hiring new people to help your business convert when it starts to grow. There are a lot of paths that a business owner can take, and each choice comes with its own outcome. The hiring decisions you make can greatly affect how well your business can convert, so adding experienced and responsible freelancers is a must. The question is how to make sure you are getting only the best – and how to master the process so that you are not stuck in a vicious cycle that eats up all the time and energy that you should be spending on growing your business.
Four basic principles form the foundation of a good hire:
- The Problem-Solver – identifies issues and brainstorms solutions before bringing the problem to your attention.
- The Workaholic – always ready and available, works towards achieving your business goals
