Top 4 Hiring Mistakes I made over the years

Over the past 7 years of running my own business, I have hired and fired/lost people along the way. As of April 2021, we are a bootstrapped team of 20+ full time and a few part time/freelancers in our network. We have a good mix between in person and remote team members. Hiring is one of the hardest things one could do as a founder/CEO and I m sharing some of the biggest mistakes I made over the years that cost time and money along with plenty of headaches:

  1. Hired someone for the wrong job
  2. Hired without checking background and references
  3. Hired even when my Gut said something is wrong or saw red flags in the interview
  4. Hired for a job that required real experience but I was naive to think a newbie could be trained in that.
