Hello by fellow good life builder!

Are you wanting to have more control over where, when and how your team of support workers do their work?

Sick of investing in training staff only for them to leave after only a short period of time?

Do you want to be able to reward and keep your staff through paying them better rates

Keen to get more bang for your buck from your budget?

The struggle to find and keep great supports

I've been directly employing staff for my son Isaac now for over 5 years.  It took me ages to get it right and I made lots of mistakes along the way.  I want to save you that trouble.

But before I do....

There are a few important things you need to know first.

Especially if you're wondering if directly employing your own staff is the way to go.

An employee is a person who works in the service of another under a contract of hire where the employer (that's you) has the right to control the details of work performance.

When you hire an employee, you get the advantage of being able to completely control and direct that person's work during work time, to train the person in the way you want the job done, and to require that person to work only for you.

But as an employer you need to comply with Federal and State laws and that can be a little scary if you've never been an employer before.

So I'll hold your hand and give you step by step guidance on how to set your self up as an employer

I've developed a training program of short, easy to follow videos where I provide you with step by step training on how to set yourself up as an employer.

I'll help you feel confident that you are doing all the right things and I'll support you to find further expert advice for your unique individual situation.

Not only that, you'll get access to mentoring sessions with me and my other mentors who are parents very experienced in directly employing their own staff to help you over come any hurdles and the support from the community other good life builders who are on the same journey.

DISCLAIMER: Please understand my results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of working with a circle of support for more than 12 years. The average person who buys any “how to” information gets little to no results. Your results will vary and depend on many factors …including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic. All recruitment activities entail risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action. If you're not willing to accept that, please DO NOT register for this training.
