2 of the best things I've ever done were quit my job and hire help. Wish I had done it sooner.

A couple of days ago I saw this article about hiring help, and I think it might have some useful ideas for scoopers who are running up against the limits of their time.

"Most dog service businesses are one-person affairs. If you run one, you know what it’s like to juggle a multitude of tasks and wear too many hats at once: Trainer/walker/sitter/daycare or boarding operator, administrative assistant, marketing manager, bookkeeper, accountant, customer service rep, even janitor.
We find in our business consulting work and when on the road speaking at conferences and seminars that many dog pros are exhausted by the pressure of keeping up—or the stress of not being able to. When we suggest hiring some help, the reaction is often shock. “Oh, I couldn’t do that. I can’t afford it.” The question is, “Can you afford not to?”

You can afford it. Really."

I use Castle Branch at
Everything is done online/credit card

Go with your gut feeling when you interview a potential employee, mine has never failed, if they are iffy now they will be bad at some time.

Thank you so much for the advice. 2 of the best things I've ever done were quit my job and hire help. Wish I had done it sooner. Knock on wood- good so far.  Wink

THANK YOU! Mr. Osborn, your book is very helpful! Scooperdude, I will definitely use your advice on probation period next time.

Also, where is the best place to get reliable background checks? I initially tried an online service and couldn't believe the mess they had listed about me. Hopefully my customers didn't see that. They had me mixed up with another person with the same name. It's supposedly updated now. Then I subscribed to but don't feel either online service is up-to-date and 100% reliable. Where or what is the best solution for background checks? Where do companies like Angieslist get their info?
