Alicia interviewed me about hiring for this video which was our third year of the conference. I love her warm, loving, zesty spirit. I just adore this woman. The topic of hiring is near and dear to my heart as I see it as the key that unlocks the door to freedom for pet business owners. There’s so much important information about hiring and in this interview I share some of the most important aspects to hiring (and keeping) great staff members.
The conference videos have a 24-hour expiration but Kristin’s video is available for unlimited viewing. Enjoy!
