How to Hire the Best

Yesterday, I ran into my friend Jim. As we were catching up on things, he mentioned he is swamped because one of his team members just quit. This came at the worst time. They are already understaffed, and have just picked up two major projects.

Now he's back to hiring and he doesn't have time for this — especially with everything else he's juggling.

He detests posting a job ad, sorting through applications and resumes, the time consuming interviewing process… he doesn't have time for this with everything else he's juggling.

Has something like this ever happened to you?

The truth is, most of us hate hiring because we feel like our chances of being successful are so slim.

In fact, they are. The typical business owner mishires 75% of the time. That means 3 out 4 hires you make will not succeed (and that costs you thousands and thousands of dollars each time!)

It's not your fault. In fact, traditional hiring processes, and much of what we have been lead to believe about finding A-Players, is WRONG.

I've been studying the hiring process in small business for years. I love when I get to talk with an owner who has successfully hired an A-Player. I get to ask, “How did you find that person?… Tell me the story…”

Through those extensive interviews, I've discovered a very SIMPLE system for attracting and hiring A-Players. I want to share it with you. If you've read my book, How to Hire the Best, you know that I specialize in solving the MOST CHALLENGING hiring problems we small business face.


If finding A-Players constantly eludes you, you will want to check this out…

If the hiring process if painfully time consuming, you will want to check this out…

If you anticipate needing team in the next few weeks, or the next 6-12 months, you will want to check this out (the sooner you start, the EASIER it is to get those A-Players!) …
