Yesterday while talking to a prospective client, it became apparent to me that I am a subject matter expert. I am not bragging or tooting my own horn here but Human Resources is a complex field. What I took for granted from a business owner is that they knew what they needed. WRONG ASNWER – Instead, our conversation went from a bandaid approach to a full operation. It never occured to me one, that a business owner knows only about “their” business. When starting a business often times “you don’t know, what you don’t know.” I want to thank this business owner for opening my eyes.
When the Entrepeneur comes alive, a passion grows inside inspiring you to become a Small Business Owner. We begin by putting together a business plan. One excellent resource to help is Center for Women and Enterprise. So the business plan is done, you find a location perhaps with the help of my friend Maureen at Glickman Kovago and Company Your ideas are fressh and you are excited to open your business. Now you need insurance so contact PJ Lombardo Insurance Agency and get the agent that you will know, like and trust! Still getting set up you need a business consultant and tax confidant. I highly recommend Accountable Business Solutions I could go on and on with referrals – WHY? Because my job as a Human Resource Professional is to “Build Human Connections.” I network and can offer solutions with trusted resources for any small business. Please reach out to me for more connections – Bankers, Lawyeres, Service Contractors and more…..
So after helping this prospective client with some connections, she stated that she needed to hire employees. I can help, I said. I began to discuss the job description, the method of attracting quality candidates, the sourcing and interview process, the actual onboarding and then the framework to support the new business – paying your employees, tax liability, employee handbooks, legal compliance, performance reviews and went on and on. What I didn’t know is that she did not know all that was involved. Who do you know that doesn’t know? I would love to help! Contact me .
