Shownotes

Brandon Cobb is the CEO of a real estate acquisition company called HBG Capital. He’s a trusted voice in the field and has spoken multiple times at the Realty for One Investor Expo, appeared on the cover of Rei Wealth Magazine, and has even written an article for Forbes. He and his team at HBG handle around 40 transactions a year, which involves a lot of moving parts - that’s why he knows all about the importance of hiring and training the right people to get it all done. 

Brandon says the key to solving problems in your business comes down to the “who,” rather than the “how.” That means you should focus on hiring great people to get the work done well. 

In this episode, Brandon and I discuss not only how important hiring and training an incredible team is, but also how to handle the process in the best way possible. From finding great candidates to creating top-notch onboarding materials for them, our conversation is filled with helpful tips for handling it all with ease.
