Having to fire an employee can be awful and zero fun! And if you're a first-time boss or new to owning a business, you're going to have to fire someone eventually.

The Un-Fun Part of Owning a Business: Firing an Employee!

Having to fire an employee can be awful and zero fun! And if you’re a first-time boss or new to owning a business, you’re going to have to fire someone eventually.

Is it possible that instead of firing someone, you could work on improving their performance so you don’t have to? Naturally if it’s a character issue (lying, stealing, etc) just rip that band-aid OFF! If it’s a performance issue, I’m going to teach you the 2 things I learned to consider before making the decision to let the employee go.
