When you hear team members, do you immediately think permanent hire? There are a lot of misconceptions about what I mean when I reference a team member. It does not have to be a permanent hire; it can be someone you bring on for a short-term basis. Before I dive in, have you listened to episode 28 yet in this four-part series? If not, hit pause and do that, and then I’ll meet you back here to talk about how to avoid mistakes when hiring in your business.
