8 Signs Your Small Business Has A Great Team

When you skim the list of what your business needs, does a great team make the cut? We sure hope so! Why?

It boils down to this . . .

While you may have the funds, the vision - you name it - your business will only be as strong as the employees that you hire. From customer service to being the hands and feet behind the services or products that you offer, they are responsible for much of your business operations. Therefore, you want people who will be committed to your business's growth and your customers' satisfaction. Not just people looking for another job.

So, how do you know if you're hiring people who know what they're doing or are willing to learn quickly? While there’s no foolproof way to know that it'll work out with a new hire, there are certain qualities to keep an eye out for.

Here are 8 characteristics of a legendary team in the making:
