Do you need to hire staff? Does the recruitment process give you hives? From when to hire and how to go about it, to sifting through the resumes and then picking the right candidate for the job; you either love it or hate it. There's no middle ground. 

HR and recruitment are foreign to many small business owners simply because it's one of those things in business that we rarely need to do. Today's guest, Erin Evans, is a recruitment expert and is going to share her secrets for streamlining the process.

A multi- award-winning business owner, Erin's experience spans franchise operations, startup build and systems implementation, business development, brand management, and of course, technology and the ever-evolving landscape of human capital, consulting and recruitment.
