The “Here’s Exactly What to Do” Guide to Finding, Hiring, and Working With Your Very First Project Manager

Earlier this week, I gave you the skinny on project managers, and why I adamantly believe that a lot of businesses really need one. Well, now I want to tell you about how to get one of your very own.

You see, a project manager takes care of all the messy, detailed, nitty-gritty sort of daily details that would otherwise dominate your schedule. They break down big plans and organize them into small tasks. They help you find and manage freelancers. Basically, they make sure that your business is working, so you have the time and the freedom to do all the things you actually want and need to do!

Imagine having someone on your side who could take all of your ideas and turn them into actionable plans (with realistic deadlines and everything, too)! Someone who helps you make sure that the things you want to do actually happen, so your business can grow the way you used to dream about – even if you’re the only person working for it!

Ideas into actions

That’s exactly what a project manager does.

So why don’t you hear more about this sort of thing? Why don’t you have one ALREADY?

There’s actually a good reason you don’t have a project manager already.

If you’ve never done it before, hiring the right project manager is really, REALLY hard. There are a ton of questions that make the whole thing seem like it’s way out of your league, like:

  • Where do I find one?
  • What qualities should I look for?
  • Are there red flags I should know about before hiring?
  • How do I know I can trust them?
  • What questions should I ask in an interview?
  • How many hours a week should they work?
  • And how the heck am I supposed to pay them??

It’s a classic chicken-or-the-egg situation, right? This would all be so much easier if you had a project manager already, but how do you get one in the first place?
