Contractor Hiring Series:

Description:

I’m guessing, like most contractors, you’ve tried to hire someone before. I’m also guessing it didn’t work out. OR that hire, who was supposed to be a second you, ended up being more of your permanent assistant than your replacement. Now, you are still just as swamped and just as busy. You are building your company where if you leave for a trip to the beach, much less retire, everything falls apart and grinds to a halt until you get back. The secret to great hiring in contracting: A hire should grow your company horizontally, not vertically.
