Build your dream team.
Join the 4-Month program to go from Solopreneur to Employer and hire your next employee with confidence.
Effortlessly attract, successfully interview, and quickly hire the loyal and reliable employees you need.
When you started your business, you had big dreams. You imagined that you would be able to design your day as you see fit and you’d call the shots in running your business.
Now it’s like your business is running you.
You’re tired. You’re working around the clock. You’re at capacity. And you know that the only way to really make traction in your business is to grow.
It’s time to hire.
Otherwise, you’ll be stuck at this level forever, and your only remaining options will be to either raise your prices (which you’ve already done a few times) or to call it quits (which isn’t anywhere in your DNA).
So again, it’s time to hire.
But hiring an employee isn’t as easy as posting on Facebook and finding your dream candidate — trust me, I wish it worked that way.
Instead, there are a number of regulatory and logistical things you have to deal with before you even begin to search for candidates. (And then yes, you need to do all the things to prepare for your new employee’s arrival — and there are many things.)
Your ducks need to be in a row (and right now, you don’t even have any ducks, just a bunch of squirrels all out of alignment).
That’s where the Solopreneur to Employer group program comes into play.
In this 4-month program, I’ll show you the exact things you need to know to go from a one-person show to a place of employment.
- Creating a job description that attracts perfect-fit candidates
- Creating an onboarding plan and procedures
- Creating an environment that people actually want to work in
- How to delegate without losing your mind
- Payroll, background checks, and insurance requirements
- And the not-so-fun topics of how to handle employee mistakes and performance issues.
Do you have knowledge gaps to fill before you start to hire (which you need to do like yesterday?) Then let’s start a conversation about the Solopreneur to Employer program to see if it’s the right fit for you.
Hey, I’m Jamie Van Cuyk.
With over 10 years of leadership experience, I have a track record of hiring and managing high-performing teams and educating business leaders.
Now, I help business owners like you become effective day-to-day people managers so that you can hire and retain the best employees who will help you exceed your business goals.
Some of the hiring accomplishments I have helped my clients achieve include:
- Shortening the hiring timeline from two months to two weeks
- Going from receiving zero qualified candidates while paying to promote a job posting over weeks to four qualified candidates in 48 hours with a free job posting
- Turning a vague four-line job posting into one that clearly defined the job and attracted the right candidates
- Reducing recruitment costs by identifying the right job boards and sites
- Helping a client go from dreading the hiring process to being excited for the process each time their growing business lets them hire again
