About the Guest:

Starting, hiring, building the right culture, or scaling your business can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be a pain in the ass anymore. Your business is a place where you should find happiness, freedom, and fulfillment, not a place where you feel like a failure. For many of us, our businesses are what give us the freedom of mind, but sometimes we can get fed up with hiring for the wrong job, not understanding why your company culture sucks or running a small business that keeps you from being able to scale. This can kill our motivation and steal the joy from the very thing that we thought was our freedom. However, setting up the right systems and practices in your business makes all the difference. At the end of the day, what’s important is that you find out what makes you happy, gives you freedom of mind, and keeps you thriving. 

Join the conversation with Jessica Derose as she shares about everything entrepreneurship, starting a business, hiring, scaling up, marketing, and more. Jessica is The Chief vision officer (CVO) and founder of Digital Evolution, the host of The Digital Evolution podcast, a former celebrity personal trainer, and an elementary school teacher. Jessica turned her once cute side hustle into a multi-million business in 18 months. She has also helped hundreds of other people do the same and create their own 7-figure businesses.

[20:01] The first thing in being a great leader is knowing yourself and learning about yourself .

[21:27] When you hire through a reactive approach, it means you are almost drowning, you need help right now, and you will take anything that comes your way
