Let me first emphasize, that I am small-time. Right now I'm working solo so I don't think you get any smaller than that. My inquiry is, how do you find good employees to build your business around? When I started a year ago I thought I had my guy. He was proficient, trustworthy, personable, reliable, and available. However, I had to take a job in Cleveland because I have to go wherever the work presents itself. He lasted for two weeks and I haven't seen him since. Now I fully understand the opposition to temporary relocation, but this is a depression (not a recession) and there are talented guys who would travel cross-country to work. Now, the homeowner's pissed because I'm nowhere near my original timeline. PLEASE, everybody, chime in with how you separate the truly valuable people from the one's that just aren't going to cut it.
