Show Notes:

Jason Blumer and Greg Kyte are back for the sixth episode of the THRIVEcast! Greg starts off by helping business owners see the upside of customer complaints. Listen to Greg tell you why complaints are good for your business and hear a few examples of his own. Jason explains what a ROWE is and a little of what it isn’t. Jason tells his team, “I trust you. I don’t care what you do.” At least as long as they get results. Jason and Greg interview Jay Shepherd about his new book, Firing at Will. Hear Jay’s opinions on hourly billing, hiring, firing, performance appraisals, and more. The book is highly recommended by Jason and Greg as a management handbook for every business owner.

Come see Greg in January at The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival!
