Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast! Today, you’re going to learn about building a team because, let’s face it, you’re only one person, and you can’t pull the plow forever. You are going to need help, and it’s advised that you look into building a team sooner, rather than later. The special guest in this episode is Gavin Zuchlinski, who is the founder of Acuity Scheduling

He also wholeheartedly believes that business should be fun, as does the team at Real Fast Results! Otherwise, why do it? Welcome to the show Gavin!
Promise: Working Successfully with a Remote Team
Thanks for having me on. I’m excited to chat about this. I just wanted to talk about working with a remote team, so hopefully, you can get some of the best talent out there and be the most successful. The reason why we do it is to find the best talent out there.
Above all, I’m trying to find, for us, the best personalities and the right people, who actually have the drive to do what they are looking for, and to make everyone who is working with me, and our company, happy too. Remote working helps to solve all of that. [bctt tweet="The best people in the world aren’t within 25 miles of you. The best people are spread out everywhere." via="no"] The best people have the luxury to define where they are going to be working and what they are going to be doing. And, we find more and more that they are using that power to go to companies that give them that flexibility, and honor them as a person, and don’t require them to do an hour commute each way.
