How to Hire and Build a Team

With The Speaker Lab

How do you know when it’s the right time to hire someone? Whether you think you need help now or you simply have an eye to the future, today’s episode is all about hiring a staff to grow your speaking career.

On episode 86 of The Speaker Lab, I’ll be sharing my personal staffing journey: who I hired, when I hired them and how I paid them.

I’ll also answer the most pressing hiring questions we all have as speakers: do we need to hire someone? How do we know if we can trust them? How should they get paid? Can we afford the expense of staff?

Listen in for the answers to those questions, and much more on today’s solo episode of The Speaker Lab.
