175 - Being a business owner, I decide to take the podcast in a different direction for a change and talk shop.
First off, thank you to Ecamm Live for allowing me to be a beta tester. I am still working on some bugs but Ecamm Live has really upped my production value, as well as given me green screen capabilities.

The "Next Person Up" mentality basically gives you a choice, even if you aren't ideally staffed. Do you continue to work with someone unreliable who refuses to do what you tell them to do, or do you take a chance on the "Next Person Up".
The 'NPU' would have to learn a lot, you would have to invest a lot of time teaching and training.... but isn't that a better use of your time than making up for someone's mistakes who refuses to learn? (The answer is hell yes... duh)
The 80/20 rule is basically this... If you are spending 80% of your time with people that get you nowhere, whether a customer or an employee, you are only spending 20% of your time with the people that can help you do something meaningful. Although you may have to sacrifice an employee or customer, it would give you time to train and teach, as well as do business with those who will help you move forward - and that will help you in the long run and pay dividends for in future.
