This new eBook features seven successful entrepreneurs whose relatable, real-life examples illustrate how good and bad hiring decisions affected their early operations. They also discuss proven strategies for selecting the best candidate from the applicant pool, the importance of cultural fit and how to shape a team for long-term success.
