Categories: Podcast

As your firm gets larger…

In this episode Tyson and Jim discuss about the perks of managing a growing firm.

As you hire more people, there are more people that are dependant of you. Sometimes this consumes your time and your energy. Don’t become a bottleneck in your firm.

Keep track of what it is that needs to get done. Make a list and then figure out who’s the best to do it. This will give you more space and time to you to make the things YOU need to do.

KPI: Key Performance Indicators: Things that you can identify, you can look at, that give an idea of what the direction of your firm is. For example: new clients, new leads. If you have your KPI’s in place you can correctly determine whether to hire or not a new employee or which decisions should be made. Put plans in place and follow through.

Hiring employees is difficult and expensive. Not financially but everything else> the time assisting, developing and growing them.

Sometimes, hiring a non experienced employee is better. They don’t have preconceived notions coming to the office and you can train them the way you need.
