→ The Foundation of Great Hires

Everyone agrees - Hiring well is crucial to your business's growth and success. But, no one tells you how to actually do it. Sure, there are blog posts and podcasts that touch on it, but most people just get more confused about what they really need to do to succeed. So, I created a step-by-step process to take you from confusion to clarity.

→ Reality Checks

It’s easy to start to think you need a LOT more horsepower than you really do (or can actually support), so I developed some Reality Checks to help you make sure you are hiring for what you really need and can afford.

Every entrepreneur & business are unique. As your business grows your needs will evolve as well. Clarity & Reality grows with you. From hiring your first assistant to your first CEO Clarity & Reality is the framework you need to make great hires.

Examples, Templates, and Tools

Sometimes it’s nice to know what the “end result” looks like. So, we’ve stuffed tons of examples, templates, and tools into Clarity & Reality.

Insider Information

Clarity & Reality is packed with insight and tools to help you make the best choice for you + your business.

There's always a deep and often expensive lesson I learn in the process of hiring for my business. Labor gone wrong will shrink your bottom line. Hiring done right will boost your profits. Clarity + Reality with Rikka was exactly the gut check I needed to evaluate the needs of the business I have TODAY. In one session I had answers and a clear plan of action to correct my hiring misfires. When it comes to helping businesses hire the right way.... Rikka is the real deal.
