PODCAST #50: Hiring Friends: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Why You’ve Got To Listen To Today’s Episode:

As an entrepreneur & CEO the idea of hiring a friend may seem like the perfect solution to your need for instant business support from someone you trust. We’ve all fantasized about the potential fun to be had - office chats,, bestie lunch breaks and post work margs - but is it really as idyllic as it sounds? Dive into today’s episode for the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to hiring friends to support your business.

In this episode I share:

● Why assumptions are the devil when it comes to hiring your dream team, especially with friends
● How the quick option of hiring someone you know seems like the safe, sure solution but often it isn’t
● The process you need to ensure your business and your friendship with your bestie stays intact
● Real life examples of how and why things get ugly when friends are hired without the right considerations

So if you’re thinking about hiring a friend - stop - and listen to this ep first. You’ll be thanking me later for ensuring you avoid the pitfalls that have the potential to derail your business and your friendships too.
