Hiring People without the Cash Flow to Support

[ Blackboard Fridays Ep. 110 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

This is a fantastic viewer question! And if you have a team, it's probably a pain you've encountered at some point - knowing that you absolutely NEED another person on the team, while simultaneously knowing that you CAN'T afford them.

So how does this unstoppable force of business growth meet the immovable object of your budget? If it were as simple as 'JFDI' then you already would have FDId, right?

In this week's episode, I'm going to share 5 approaches to help you make this critical decision. You don't need to apply all 5 - in fact, I'm hoping that just one of them is right for you and helps you with this next, bold step.

Does that guarantee the new recruit will be the best business decision? Hell no, but you can't grow a business without taking risks, and if this problem is keeping you awake at night then perhaps it's a risk you need to take.

Watch this week's episode here.
