“You’ll know it’s time to hire…when you’re not able to do the things you love and excel at.”
- Lesley Pyle
Placing our trust in other people is scary. Struggling along by ourselves can oftentimes feel safer than taking a risk on a new hire. But it comes at a cost. The more time we spend working on the day-to-day details of our bookkeeping businesses, the less we love them.
When searching for the right people for our business, it is important to remember that trust is built over time, through practice and adversity. You’ll never find someone you immediately trust with your business, but you can, through well thought out ads, invite people with complementary skills and experiences to build that trust with you.
Lesley Pyle, owner and founder of HireMyMom.com, is this episode’s featured guest. Born from a strong desire to help moms find legitimate work from home, Lesley has spent her career helping women find the perfect home-based job for them.
She speaks powerfully to the nature of trust, finding the right people for your team and how to know when the time is right to expand your business.
