I recently hired some new staff, and I promise you, it's one of the most difficult boss duties around. We've both had our ups and downs when it comes to bringing on new talent. Sometimes, we've hit it out of the ballpark. And other times, not so much. What's the key to doing it right?

Every time we hire a new employee, we get smarter about what works. Though it sometimes requires a little trial and error, the recruiting process can help bring to light what a we should look for in new employees and how this relates to our businesses' broader needs. In this week's episode, we discuss our hiring ups and downs, candidate red flags, and our favorite interview questions. And because the perfect hire can be as rare as a unicorn, we're sipping on our newly-invented gin cocktail, the Happy Unicorn.
