The Bottom Line by Evolved Finance


Nov 2, 2020

One of the most attractive parts of running an online business is the fact you can do so much on your own. In fact, most of the smaller businesses ($100k-$250k a year) we work with barely have any team at all. But what every single entrepreneur we work with quickly realizes is that they can only get so far on their own.

Whether you are hiring your first virtual assistant or hiring your first full-time employee, the task can seem daunting. Especially because contractors and employees are some of the biggest financial investments we make in our businesses. 

That’s why I was so excited to talk to hiring expert Megan Baker about how you can get better at hiring the right people for your online business.

During my conversation with Megan, we discuss:

  • Why you want to hire people who DO NOT think like you

  • Why hiring for your small online businesses is not liking hiring at a large corporation

  • Why self-awareness is so crucial for successfully managing new team members

  • What to look out for when posting a job for the first time

  • The importance of transparency when hiring new team members

  • Why it is OK for new positions to have messy job descriptions at first

  • Why attitude can be as important as hard skills when hiring

  • The importance of having multiple touchpoints during your interview process
