Q&A: Delegating Tasks At Home, Job Offers, & The Sunday Scaries

Nikki and I are covering topics like how to know if a candidate is the right fit for your company, ways to manage the emotional drain of entrepreneurship, and effective home systems that we have in place.  We highlight how we delegate tasks and seek support from our partners around decision fatigue. We also talk about how we communicate with our families when we have to work outside of normal business hours, which is one of the major trade-offs of being your own boss. Plus, today’s legal brief is all about having solid privacy policies and reviewing how you protect internal information.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Embracing the ability to create your own company culture  Juggling the on and off switch as a business owner  Communicating about caretaking and home-based tasks with your partner  Our favorite life hacks that make the day a little bit easier  How to avoid the Sunday Scaries     RESOURCES Join the waitlist for my new HR app, Quinn!  Get What You Want: How to Go From Unseen to Unstoppable by Julie Solomon Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty   Kacey Musgraves James Taylor    What's For Dinner Club Mika Perry's blog     CONNECT WITH NIKKI  Follow Nikki: @thenikkibutler  Follow Nikki Butler Media: @nikkibutlermedia  Work with Nikki: nikkibutlermedia.com    CONNECT WITH LAUREN Follow Lauren: @thelaurenboyd Follow Guide My Business: @guidemybusiness
