Sooner or later every entrepreneur moves from being a one-man-band to an employer. But very few of us have any recruiting or management experience.
What is the best way to make that move? How do I go about hiring my first employee?
In this episode of Radio Free Enterprise I have two guests joining me to talk about one topic: Attracting, Retaining and Developing Top Talent into your business. And, most especially, how to get started with that first hire.
My first guest is former Air Force helicopter pilot turned first-time entrepreneur Curtis Marshall, owner of DC dot Rentals, a small but rapidly growing residential property management firm based out of Alexandria, Virginia.
My second guest is a veteran entrepreneur. Brian Fielkow is president of JetCo Delivery in Houston, Texas and author of the book Driving To Perfection: Achieving Business Excellence by Creating a Vibrant Culture.
In this interview Curtis explains the challenges he is confronting as he faces the task of hiring his first employee and Brian shares his wisdom and experience in regards to building a successful team and culture.
