HOW will you expand your business activity in 2021, to make up for a challenging “COVID-19” year?

Well, you are going to have to rebuild your team FIRST… because it is the willingness and dedication of your people to make things go right that will always make the difference! 

Fear, anguish, selfishness, irresponsibility, entitlement, or a drive for short-term/easy money should NOT be part of your employees’ character!

Simply stated, you are going to have to attract, select, and onboard people who will be willing AND able to make your organization successful while contributing to the happiness of all concerned: peers, customers, and the community at large.

There is however ONE factor that remains very hard to detect in an applicant:


And that includes their REAL (sometimes hidden) motivations & intentions!

“Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don’t have the first, the other two will kill you. You think about it; it’s true. If you hire somebody without [integrity], you really want them to be dumb and lazy.” – Warren Buffett

Feedback from a few clients:

“I was excited to read Patrick’s next book ’Taking off the Mask’ because I had read his first – ’No Fail Hiring’ and I then became a client of Hirebox and after practical application of all he teaches I knew this would be good. I wasn’t disappointed. He does push his Hirebox test and platform and if you’re not already a fan this could be a turn offf but trust me – I have 286 employees and I would never hire a single one without first testing them on the hirebox platform. Good, easy read with some golden nuggets you didn’t think of or read before. Highly recommend.”

“This is a brand new book that is so relevant to these times. I have made so many mistakes in hiring people in the past that I have almost lost everything I have worked for. I wanted this book by Patrick Valtin because I have read about his company and have recently tried his system for hiring people and this book makes everything clear and concise on what to watch out for. Things are getting so difficult to hire the right person without spending tens of thousands of dollars and Patrick lays it all out here. An easy and quick read.”

“I found the information in this book to be extremely valuable for anyone either running a business or wanting to start a business. Patrick Valtin has given the reader an inside look at what it takes to safeguard a business as well as how to succeed in and expand the business. Not only was I unaware of a lot of statistics given, but I was also unaware of how I might avoid these pitfalls. I would never again run a group or an organization without applying this data. It is information for any leader to survive as well as thrive!!“

“I had a lot of false believes from the past about the right way to hire, or the most important things to look for in a prospect… what was my surprise, it is not really the RIGHT way to hire the RIGHT people… Questions of the past “Do you have experience on this area?” Not important!!! If you have a business or you are an entrepreneur this is a MUST read. Quite a jewel which will blow away old false believes and you will understand why. It even changed the way I look at people… Quite an eye opener! Thank you Patrick!”
