Waiting on a Unicorn
2020 handed me my ass on a platter. Located in the Manhattan suburbs of NJ, we were totally shut down for months. I had to make the extremely difficult decision to lay-off most of my team. We scaled way back to our skeleton crew while we waited… and waited for it to be safe to be back in our clients’ homes.
Months later, with our pipeline filling up, we needed help, and fast. Luckily, I was in a Mastermind that opened my eyes to a new perspective on hiring.
I learned that waiting for the right people, rather than getting someone in the door as fast as possible, was the key to a
successful ROCKSTAR team.
I hired a management consultant who catapulted my hiring strategy by helping me lay out the ideal structure of my team.
We honed in on my ideal work styles, personalities and really encouraged me to wait and find my unicorn… my next best hire.
