Contractors Hiring Blueprint
Make your next hire your best hire yet!
Are you tired of struggling to find good employees?
Have you ever thought there aren’t enough good people out there?
You’re not alone. I see so many contractors struggling to find and recruit great people.   
And hiring the wrong person can cost you - a lot!
Have you ever thought there aren’t enough good people out there? You’re not alone. I see so many contractors struggling to find and recruit great people.  
If you ever find yourself saying things like…
  • It would be great to know the secret to finding and hiring great people” 
  •  “I’m tired of having people who can’t do the job I hired them for” 
  • “Our staff turnover is costing us a fortune” 
  • I wish I knew  the secret to finding and hiring great people!” 
  •  “I’m tired of having people who can’t do the job I hired them for!” 
  • “Our staff turnover is costing us a fortune!”
This step by step 'blueprint' unlocks the key to 
Finding, Recruiting and Hiring GREAT Teams
Videos, Worksheets, Templates and Other Great Resources
The Contractors Hiring Blueprint is designed to help you become more effective in recruiting, hiring and onboarding new employees, and ultimately, building and retaining a great team.
According to the US Dept. of Labor, the average cost for each bad hire can equal 30% of that individuals annual earnings. This, when you hire the wrong person who earns $60,000 a year, the real costs to your organization could be $78,000!

I developed this course as a way to overcome my own challenges as a leader, and for over 25 years I’ve helped hundreds of contractors learn to recruit and hire better.  As a result, they've built great teams that are skilled, competent and take ownership.

Each of the videos in the Contractors Hiring Blueprint course will walk you through how to recruit, screen, interview, and onboard new team members. 

Along with the videos, you’ll receive checklists, processes, templates and interview questions that will help you implement what you learn in this course.

I Put in Half the Time I Used To

Before I met Vicki, I was working out of my house with part-time help. I was routinely putting in 80-100 hours a week on my business. I didn’t have time to do other things I enjoy, and I was exhausted and unhappy. Vicki helped me put the systems and people I needed in place to sustain and grow my business. Now, I put in half the time I used to and get much more done, and make way more money.

How to be More Strategic

With no real business background, we had become accustomed to basing business decisions on our intuition. Our guesses were pretty good. But as we grew, we realized that keeping things running was harder than it had to be. Vicki showed us how to plan on budget, explained what our numbers are telling us, and showed us how we could be more strategic in how we spend our time and our money.
