Hire people that are smarter than you. Learn why in this episode.
Trent and Amanda Ragar didn’t initially choose to get into pest control service. But in making the transition to a new industry after years in the green with northwest Arkansas lawn care customers, Amanda Ragar knew right away what had to happen: “We needed to hire people that were smarter than us,” she says.
