Have you ever wanted your business to be more like a Google-level company?
If so, then check out this post called “6 Ways Small Businesses Can Operate Like a Billion Dollar Juggernaut on a Shoestring Budget” by Michel Falcon and discover some ways to copy them with out needing their wallet…
“Small business owners admire billion dollar brands for their operational strategies and programs similar to how young athletes admire Lebron James for his jump shot. However, small business owner’s admiration can quickly turn into “I wish we had the budget to…” after concluding that they don’t have the same infrastructure to create these programs.

“Tip: What type of questions are you asking candidates? Are they generic, easy to answer questions or ones that really make the candidate think and challenge their intelligence and thought process? Spend some time this week evaluating the questions you are asking.”
