There must be something in the air. Three of my clients called me this week to talk about firing a subcontractor. One client asked me, “Can you please write an article about this so I know what to do?” And thus this article was born.
We hire people to help us grown and run our small business: assistants and virtual assistants, website designers and graphic artists, copywriters, coaches and consultants, and bookkeepers. But what do you do when their work isn’t up to par or they are constantly missing their deadlines?
These issues can lead to other problems, so even if they seem small they can blow up on you in the future. Your reputation relies on the quality of the work you do and all the people who you hire need to have the same level of excellence. If you demand it of yourself, demand it of your subcontractors.
