How to find good employees

One would think in a tough economy, it’s an employer’s market.

But, in fact, the opposite is true.

Good people are too scared to take a chance on a new job and would rather stay put where they are.

How do you deal with the job conundrum?

A business owner needs good people!

Without them you can’t grow.

How do you get the right people to do the right thing on time, and at the right price?

How do you employ the best people to help you build your business into an asset of value?
