Fishing ISN'T easy. Growing up in a coastal community, I had many friends that enjoyed charting the waters and casting their lines. Hearing their stories and seeing the fish they caught, I figured it couldn't be that difficult, right? Well, a few weeks ago, I had the chance to put my skills to the test and it was everything but easy.
After 8 hours of fishing 20 miles off Key West, I didn't catch anything except for a sunburn and the ocean floor. That's when I realized, finding new employees is similar to fishing, because your success, or lack thereof, is highly dependent on skill. So, allow me to use my lessons learned on the open sea to help us catch more fish, or in the case of running a successful organization, find more talent.
