    How do you identify really good employees/friends?

    So I'm looking to hire 2 new potential lead managers for our new venture and both guys are younger than me (3-5 years younger, I'm in my early 20s). It's still a startup, so we don't have any revenue yet. Which is why the thread is called identifying friends, rather than employees because we...

    Plant Money Trees By Making SYSTEMS

    GOLD! EXECUTION 
    I've seen "making systems" and delegating mentioned throughout the forum a few times now (@Antifragile , @Kak , @mikecarlooch , @BizyDad, @MTF , and more) but I haven't stumbled on any recent easy approachable guides to it. It seems like some people are really hesitant because it looks harder...

    This labor shortage is sooooo draining

    PEOPLE 
    That about sums it up. Its mentally exhausting trying to keep a business afloat with staff shortages.....not to mention the fact that some of the staff we have is of low quality. At this point, just having bodies is necessary for us. But finding a GOOD employee now is a little like finding a...

    How To More Clearly Communicate With My Team?

    PEOPLE 
    This is the first time I have people who work for me. It is the next step in my evolution. They are from a country everyone learns English as a second language in school. There is a slight barrier, since they take figures of speech literally. The solutions I've found through trial and error...

    Best way to do employee heath coverage?

    Let's talk health benefits for employees. We have 4 employees >30 hours a week and 4 part time staff. We'd like to extend a health care stipend, and it looked like a QSEHRA was the best way to do it. It lets us extend the same amount (i.e. $200 a month) to every employee to reimburse for any...

    PEOPLE HOT! 
    Hey all, I just joined the group. I have an 8 yr employee that I've felt has taken advantage of my generosity increasingly more the last few years. I've suspected her of fudging her hours but I never had hard evidence until now. Most of my team is on salary and the last thing I want to worry...

    A book author called Conrad Prämböck released a Book in 2012 (one year after The Millionaire Fastlane Book) promoting life as employee. His argument is: In the most income classes, except the highest, employees earn more than entrepreneurs. The entrepreneur dream is propaganda to most people...
