Kornel and I chat about our personal experiences and the big questions of hiring others for your business:

  • Hiring employees vs contractors and the pros and cons that we've experienced with both.
  • Do you hire local? Virtual? Within your own country? Matt's VA horror story.
  • The massive advantages of hiring experienced specialists versuses generalists or people who are not so inexperienced.
  • Why it doesn't make financial or business sense to try to find the cheapest possible labour.
  • Managing and tracking the output of your workforce.
