When hiring, I’m supposed to consider:

The new people should have the skills to do the tasks

Their strengths should complement what’s already in the company

I need to be able to assess their strengths

I need them to be able to work on their own

I’d like them to be a part of the team.

I should look for people who will fit in with the culture of my company

I need to understand the culture of my business

Staff will be the face of my business and can make or break success

I should consider people who are different than me so that I will have a well-rounded offering

But not too different or they will clash with my customers’ expectations and the other staff

And all this from a resume and an interview.

No pressure!

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
