Hiring and Firing in your own business: Do you know it’s time to take on staff? Does that fill your heart with dread? Nicola & Judith debate staffing this week.
In the Show..
Judith’s still in love with her new hobby (colouring-in) and curious about all her new clients in the September in-take. Nicola is booking her cruise in January, her trips to Australia in March and to Vegas in May, all 2016, all forward planning which she confesses she finds somewhat challenging.
- What’s Fuelled Their Fire?
Nicola has created a new closed group on Facebook for the podcast where listeners can debate the issues raised during the broadcasts, and she’s taken on a couple of new initiatives she initially wanted to bat away. Judith’s been teaching blogging to two very close friends and falling in love with blogging all over again. She recommends her client Sam’s Blog Club.
- Client Challenge of the Week
Hiring and Firing: How to find the right staff. How to create a procedures manual “How We Do It Here” which podcasts to listen to, which books to read and how to do it right. Write a job description and hire to the role, do not be tempted to give a nice job to a nice person, friend or family member. How to manage your growing team plus thoughts on delegation, training and believing it is possible to find people who will help and support, not hinder.
- Words of the Week
Judith picks Nerve and Nicola chooses Visible
Nicola’s new visibility initiatives include her weekly Facebook Ads clinic which is weekly and free and her brand new Facebook Ads “Virtual Bootcamp”.
- N&J Project Updates
Now that September is here, Nicola’s going back to basics and focusing on her core business while Judith is enjoying winning the jackpot – twice! – at one of her MLM projects GoldenScratchie and experimenting with a new betting tips service which she explains to Nicola.
- Who or What’s Impressed?
Judith picks strong Facebook community leaders who choose how to respond to negativity and bad news/behaviour in their groups instead of over-reacting, and Nicola learns from pal Minesh about Visual Website Optimizer.
