How and When to Expand your Team
Did you know I started my fashion line thinking that I could do it all myself?
Yep. I thought I could do customer service, marketing, production, design, shipping etc. all by myself.

In fact, the first few hires were key to enabling us to grow.
On this week's episode, I'm talking all about HR! Yes, that's Human Resources.
This is a topic you fully may not be thinking about now, but no matter what the size of business you have NOW, you will need to hire a team to grow, eventually.
