Did you know that one of the most crucial factors you need to consider when creating a profit plan is
“people”? You’re right! The people you hire are an important asset to the growth of your business.

But do you say yes to every opportunity you get to hire someone? That’s simply not the case! A lot of
considerations have to be put in place, hence the people plan.

Welcome to the third part of our three-part series with Craig Minter, where we talk about the careful
considerations you have to make before actually bringing a new member into the team.

Let’s dive deep into the possible complexities and challenges that arise from hiring people and how
you can address them by establishing the right frameworks.

    I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
