Ep07 – What’s the True Difference Between Employees & Independent Contractors?

Employees or Independent Contractors… do you know the difference?
Many small business owners do not fully understand the difference between the two and hire based on opinions and not fact. However, hiring a team member under the wrong classification can lead to significant fines, fees, and other penalties by the government.

Ep06 – Finding the Best Freelancers for Your Business with Micala Quinn

Ep06 – Finding the Best Freelancers for Your Business with Micala Quinn

Finding the best freelancers and contractors to fill the openings in your business can be a daunting task.

Unlike with hiring employees where you can post on the right job board and have candidates come to you, for freelancers and contractors, you typically have to put a lot of time and effort into the search. 

So, how can you find the best freelancers and contractors? Well, you can spend hours searching websites hoping that your perfect-fit team member ranked high enough in the search to be seen, you can post in a business Facebook group and get endless comments and messages (many unqualified and not offering any services close to what you need), or you can take the easy route. 

Micala Quinn developed a way to connect business owners to their perfect-fit freelancers and contractors, and in this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast, she’s telling us all about this plus more information that you should know before hiring with freelancers and contractors.

Ep03 – How Not to Double Your Work When You Hire a Team with Jenna Carelli

Some business owners start off dreaming about a business that’s just them. No team, no need to delegate, and the drive to hustle and do it all themselves! Then, reality hits and it’s realized that maybe one person shouldn’t do it all… maybe hiring a team is the best move to achieve one’s dreams.

That is exactly what happened to our guest, Jenna Carelli. After starting her first business and loving the hustle, life changed and so did her desire to work around the clock. She then began the process of hiring her first team.

Since then, her business has changed and her team has transitioned, but those she hires continue to be the backbone of her company. Today, she is sharing her leadership secrets with us!

Ep02 – Avoiding the Pitfalls of Needy Team Members

Micromanaging… let’s be honest. No boss wants to be labeled as a micromanager (or waste their time doing it!) and no team member wants to be micromanaged. However, in small businesses micromanaging happens all the time!

In this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast (our first informational episode!), I share what causes small business owners to start micromanaging their employees, why it’s not something you want to do even if you prefer to stay updated on team member work, and how to avoid or stop the cycle of micromanagement.
