Note: We’re halfway through the Vault launch and there are just a handful of passes left. I’ll be shutting everything down at 5 p.m. on Friday October 10th. So, if you want to join…get to it… (Join the Vault)
I have two friends. See if you can spot the difference in them…
(names and details are changed to protect the innocent)
My buddy Steve:
Steve is a copywriter who lives in Nashville, TN. He works a normal 9-5 job and spends his day writing email copy for banks.
You know those automated messages you get from your bank, like, “Notice: You’ve had a large withdrawal from your account“?
Yeah, Steve wrote that.
He’s been doing this type of work since he graduated college. He likes it alright, but it’s a bit repetitive and doesn’t really get him fired up in the mornings.

I wrote an ad, screened applicants, did a few test jobs and finally hired someone. Then, after all of that, the person I hired sucked.
So, I fired him and hired 5 more people. Why 5? Because I’ve found that 4 out of 5 people suck at their job. Why not hire 5 at once, find the one that is really good, and short-cut the entire process?
Bwahaha! Bryan not dumb.
That’s when I found Jacob. My Infusionsoft man.
He’s $30 per hour, English-speaking, and does a great job.
Finding good people is HARD!
Over the past 24 months I’ve found a lot of bad contractors and the occasional diamond in the rough.
