When hiring someone new you get a fresh prospective on your companies DNA. You like to think you’re running you business in a certain way, but a fresh pair of eye might show you something you’ve been neglecting.

This is one of the best opportunities you’re going to get to improve. A few months ago I started working for an advertisement agency. They have a clear plan or at least i thought they did. Turns out that as a new team player I found more holes in the system then they where willing to deal with.

They where all small things, nothing in itself was major but when you add them all together they amount to a lot. They where smart enough to fix most of them, sadly not all companies are like that.

When given the chance to improve take it. You can’t afford to have something holding you back because of ego. Ego doesn’t pay the bills.
