This is a tough topic. No one likes firing, well maybe a few crazy people out there, but for the most part it’s a super painful part of the business. You invested in someone, you thought it would work, and for some reason, it’s falling apart. It’s important to not let things linger and fire fast. But it’s a little harder in real life.
I think firing people is one of the most painful experiences as an owner. Not only is it usually ugly but it’s also a break in the relationship. That’s devastating for my personality. I like to be good with everyone. I want to be successful in my relationships. But sometimes it’s better to let go instead of dragging it out, especially if you have a team who is watching it all godown.
