Why the best hire might not have the perfect resume, by Regina Hartley
Odds are if you run a small business – or are hoping to run one someday – that you will eventually need to hire employees to help as the company grows. Hartley speaks to the dangers of hiring the perfect candidate and ignoring those resumes that may be less-than-ideal. Those whose lives have not been set up for success – the “Scrappers” as she calls them – are the employees that will know how to adapt and overcome adversity.
Don’t fail fast – fail mindfully, by Leticia Gasca
A wonderful sentiment that you’ve probably heard before, Gasca focuses this 12-minute talk on the importance of failure as an opportunity for growth.
