How to hire the right person the first time.
Plan B. It’s the career after you have been laid off, outsourced, down sized, right sized or fired. Times are tough and jobs-Plan A-are hard to find. Or if you find one it’s at a fraction of what you are making and there are no benefits. Secure jobs and pensions are being destroyed. Young workers may never know job or career security. Future success will depend being entrepreneurial instead working long hard hours at a job. Most people want a Plan B but don’t know how to begin. Read Plan B to learn how.

It may surprise you to learn that money is not a tool that keeps employees happily working for you, assuming of course you are paying competitively. Robert Suttles, VP of Human Resources of Health First says, “Think of your best and your weakest employees. What difference would you see, long term, if you doubled their pay?” His point is that you may see a short term burst of productivity; but all the research and personal experience indicates a long term change is not created by more money.
As a long time promoter of strategic and tactical planning, I have always advocated the need for a “Plan B” (and, sometimes, a Plan C and a Plan D), I’m delighted to recommend Kathleen’s Plan B book. It is chock full of practical ideas for making your business dreams come true. Buy it; study it; and don’t lend it out.George MorriseyAuthor"Creating Your Future: Personal Strategic Planning for Professionals"
