082: How to Hire Independent Contractors and Avoid the Drama

Independent contractors can be a HUUUGE asset to your practice. Adding a health coach or other wellness practitioner is a great business move that can help you free up time and offload the things you don’t want to do.

But, just like anyone else you work with, you need to set clear boundaries. Otherwise, they begin doing it their way, showing up when they want to, and before long, the relationship quickly spirals and goes downhill fast. 😳

In today’s podcast, you’ll hear all the gory details of an independent contractor horror story that happened to someone I know. And I don’t want it to happen to you!

Bringing someone into your practice is a big deal and shouldn’t be taken lightly. I’ve got what I think are the 6 most important considerations when hiring an independent contractor. Just like my friend and colleague, I’ve taken a few hits in this department as well.

Let’s get your business relationships off to a great start so you don’t get burned. 🔥

Practice growth is truly something to celebrate, so let’s crack this open my friend, and get you on the road to a more successful life and business!
