Wondering why turnover is still really high with new hires even when you’re being smart about it? Listen to this week’s episode with Natalie who shares how you’re setting your new hires up for failure without realizing it and how you can make the shift to hire effectively.

Natalie and I discuss how we all would love to have another version of ourselves inside of our business, but she shares that as a solopreneur you are wearing 7 different hats whilst also being extremely overworked, so you can’t expect to find a hire that can fulfil all of that. And even worse planning to hire someone to work a Frankenstein role will only end up with them being torn apart as your business grows. So Natalie explains how to find that perfect new hire and what that role might consist of.

Plus don’t miss out on Natalie sharing how to find your dream job title, match it with your skill set, and secure the job by being prepared in the interview inside this week’s episode.
