- 17:46 – “We went out and we tried to find contractors through Upwork or Fiverr and ultimately I was running the ads but we were bringing in different people to help support, and project work just all project work seeing what they could do, seeing how they worked within Right Left, seeing how they interacted with other team members and then when anyone would actually stick and they were getting it they were understanding, they were really reliable, their work was really good, that’s when we’d say hey we’ve been working together for a few months, you’ve done some good projects for us we really like working with you would you be open to a retainer or an actual position here, and that’s literally our entire team is made up of people who started as a project and doing contract work and then we kind of won them over and told them to come on to retainer so that’s how we always approached hiring.”
- 20:25 – “When we are hiring people we’re not only looking for skills we’re looking for personality fit, we’re looking for something that is both fulfilling for us and for the employee or team member and being really understanding and open.”
