When your sole proprietorship grows to a point where you can't manage it on your own anymore, it's time to start hiring. For many business owners, the shift to becoming a boss and a manager is difficult. If you've never had to be the one in a position of authority, understanding how to effectively communicate and manage your staff can be challenging. After years of management seminars, research, and experimentation, I created this site to share tips, techniques, and tools that can help others to be effective as employers. I hope it makes things easier for you as you start hiring staff.
