Every so often, Dick and I do a special audio Tripodcast. These are usually interesting topics based on the time of year or other event. This time, it is the end of the 1st quarter. Are you ready? Sure, you have your taxes done (right?) But have you thought about where your business is? Remember when you made your plan last year? Remember when you said you would look at your business on a quarterly basis? Are you ready?

Download | Duration: 00:08:02



Continuing the theme of finding, interviewing and hiring employees, in this Tripodcast Dick Ollek, CBSE talks about what he calls "The Retirement Dilemma" and how this can be used to your advantage. No, it's not YOUR retirement, but the fact that many people of retirement age are unable to retire "full time" and are looking for productive part time jobs... maybe the very jobs you have available.

Technical Problems

I am very sorry, but due to some significant technical problems, we are not able to post a Tripodcast this evening. We will have a ne Tripodcast posted next week at our normal time. Thank you for your understanding.

Tripodcast Episode 344 - Interviewing Prospective Employees

Download | Duration: 00:07:39



There are things you need to know... And there are questions you cannot ask.... In this Tripodcast Dick Ollek, CBSE helps you avoid the questions you cannot ask and find those that will help you find out what you need to know.

There should be a video associated with this Tripodcast. However, between Google, YouTube and GoDaddy, it is not available. Each of these organizations have set up such byzantine rules for logging on, passwords, access codes, etc. that it is virtually impossible to make them work together.

I will continue to work to resolve these issues and hope to have this resolved next week for our next Tripodcast. The good news is - Dick's message is equally effective in an audio version. I am sure you will enjoy it and gain some excellent information.

Thank you for listening.
