For the business Ladies!

So, My DH use to work with a guy named Paul. Well, Paul has been sent home and told not to go into work because they are SUPER slow right now. Paul has no car, and he continuously asks for a ride but really wants to start working with my on my business. Now, he has a million excuses. Do you think that he would just slow me down, or do you think he would do enough work to NOT be a burden!? Suggestions will be great!

  • Someone who has a million excuses will always have a million excuses. Hitch your wagon to a star, my mama used to say. He will slow you down. Why bother?

  • Yep! Why bother!!!! It would be hard to even consider him, I am sorry to say that.

  • If you weren't looking to hire someone before Paul came available, why would you suddenly have a job for someone now? Just to be nice? That would never turn out well.

  • I would give him a shot if you think he is capable of performing well, but cut him at the first sign of trouble once/if he actually does start working. Don't wait around for him, don't let him drag you down...I guess you and your husband know better about what kind of worker he actually is.

  • Thank you ladies. I didn't want to be the only one thinking that! It is something that everyone could do IF you are willing to work. I am always trying to expand though!!

  • Sounds like a burden! If he REALLY wanted it, he would do it, not make excuses. You can't want it more then he does, which that's kind of what it sounds like.

    I say cut your losses and move on.

  • Yeah I wouldn't bother......too many excuses means he's not a hard worker or dedicated and committed.
