In this Podcast I’m going to teach you have to hire the right employees. *IMPORTANT POINTS* Know What You’re Looking For The Interview is Crucial Know What You’ve Got 1. Know What You’re Looking For - This is a culture focus. You know why Chic-fil-a has such nice employees? They hire nice people! You know workers ar McDonalds aren’t nice? Because McDonalds doesn’t care! 2. The Interview is Crucial - This is an audit of skills + personality If they don’t fit its OK! Every time you “give someone a chance” is a time you’re gonna get burned! 3. Know What You’re Looking For - Double check that your audit was correct Take notes, like a short journel entry, after the interview has left Close your eyes and picture them working with clients, or in the warehouse alone…WHAT DO THE CHEMICALS IN YOUR BODY DO AS YOU WATCH THEM WORKING? WHY DO YOU FEEL THAT WAY? Thanks for Listening!! PATREON https://www.patreon.com/NickGlassett I made a Patreon Page.

How to Properly Value Yourself to the Market
This was a FUN one. I have a great business conversation with an old friend and former college Ashley Taylor aka Ydren Creations. PLEASE go follow her on Instagram and TikTok. Ashley is in the beginning stages of starting a business, and as I've hear a lot from of creatives, the ART is easy, the business side can be confusing or overwhelming. So I had reached out to Ash on IG telling I hope she charged enough for an amazing mural that she did on a window, and she said she WAY undercharged for it, so I set up a call to give her some advice! In this podcast we discuss how to decide what to charge for your services when you have NO idea, how to say no for someone that has incredibly low expectations on price, and much much more.  It was great to catch up with Ashley, as we worked together in the corporate world for 5+ years, and most importantly I thing this will bring a ton of people some value! Thanks for listening, and make sure you subscribe!! ❤️🆖 PS If you want to check out my other projects… -My YouTube Channel  -My personal Blog -The Jump Off (my waterslide and bounce house biz) -The Haul Off (my Junk Hauling biz) -My podcast (Apple, Spotify)
