So we are opening a health club
My hubs has only hired women, 4 to be exact. I can't be looking sexest here, I think we should hire the rest all male if possible, what do you think? I am looking to hire 8 employees for now, and as I weed out who is serious and who is not I will add more. PLus I want to train them, and then after losing a few, probably, when I hire new ones on they can train the new ones. I figure who ever takes the most initiative should get the management positions. (which I am prepared to offer benefits to all FT managers and Employees)
Heres where we disagree again, he wants to hire a manager, like someone who has past experience. I think thats a crap shoot, I'd rather get fresh people, train them how I want, and find the leader. What do you think?
Also, I guess the last detail thats a costly decision. He wants to put in a smoothies bar, all fruit smoothies, and juicers. The catch??? He wants everything to be local and organic. sure most things here are organic, and buying local is easy, but when it isn't berry season, or melon season, etc how do we compensate for the loss?
But as stands we have a no plastic bottle policy, and all memeber will be rewarded with a water canteen for the first 3 months of having doors open. Cool?

keeping it local you could buy extra fruit while it's in season and freeze it

I tend to agree with your husband regarding hiring a manager with experience. The right person could bring something to the business that you and husband have never even thought of. I also think that you would want someone in a management position from the get go. and yes you need to hire some men.
As for the smoothie bar, I think he should keep his options open. I think organic is fine, but limiting yourself to just locally grown could be a problem.
I like the idea of giving away the water canteens, but sometime people may forget it at home and to not allow plastics bottles would be annoying to me.
Just my opinions, and best of luck with your new venture. It sound really exciting.
