They’re the ones who’ll lead your team, be responsible for retaining members, and help you achieve your revenue goals. 

And today, Studio Grow Consultant, Cherise, dished out on everything from recruitment to extending an offer, and everything in between. 

Cherise drops some serious insights on outlining job responsibilities (including daily ones), writing job descriptions that speaks to your ideal candidate, why you need to ‘hire slow and fire fast’, what red flags to look out for during the interview process, and how setting realistic goals and accountability while extending an offer will set you up for success.
