you hire someone and start training them.
Best description of the new guy(my first employee) is a sprout, he's green as hell. Knows nothing of being a messenger at all. Usual hang ups all the rookies go thru, uncomfortable handling the bag and cargo, unsure of himself around customers, not sure about where he's going or what to do when he gets there, locking and unlocking the bike is still new and not automatic. Its almost comical to watch, but everyone goes thru it. I had two choices, hire someone experienced but jaded, or a fresh apple from the tree, I took the rookie....I think I have my work cut out for me now, this is supposed to ease my workload, not increase it LOL. Looks like that may take awhile till it happens.
Brings back memories of how slow I used to be, I remember when I struggled to do 3-4 stops an hour, nowadays I do 6-8 without even trying hard and 12-14 or so when Im going full speed. Maybe in year or so he will have a decent grasp of how its done, we'll see, messenger business usually separates those that have a work ethic and skills from those that dont rather quickly, it doesnt suffer much foolishness.
