The Fire Time Podcast – Episode 40 – Rick Vlahos
Everyone wants to grow their business from where it’s at now, but many business owners miss the fact that educating their team is the best(and cheapest)way to get there.
In this conversation, I sat down with Rick Vlahos (Executive Director | Hearth, Patio & BBQ Education Foundation) to talk about what leaders in our industry can do to educate their team members.
In this episode:
- Disarm the “if I educate my people they’ll just leave”mentality (this kind of thinking will cripple your company)
- Understand why investing in education is critical if you want your team to grow (many companies miss this)
- Learn why certifying your installers may become mandatory in the near future (it’s happening all over the country)
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to grow your company by training your team members. Longterm, the people you invest in with education will go to the wall for you, represent your brand and make you a ton of money long before they ever leave you.
