How to Fire Someone the Polite and Decent Way

My first little venture into YouTube. I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but for some reason, I was scared. I didn’t want to be pigeon-holed into people thinking I was trying to jump on the YouTube bandwagon and start doing makeup tutorials or “November Favourites” videos. For me, there was a lack of business talk; I could find snippets of business information here and there, normally through something very produced like a business magazine of some kind, but what I wanted was for someone who is in the thick of business-related issues, to talk about their experiences. There wasn’t anyone that I could find easily, so I figured, even if just for myself, I would start documenting the trials and tribulations of my two businesses and see if it helps anyone along the way.

Would really love to know what you think or what you’d like me to talk about next.

  • Thank you! This was helpful. I’m looking forward to more videos. I agree with you — these types of videos are needed.

    Really well done. so professional – yet entertaining.
    Looking forward to your next video.

  • I find firing people for business reasons more stressful. Sure, they’ve been informed before that cutbacks are due, but to hand in the notices to people you consider your friends and know to be great workers.. shitty job, but that’s the downside of being a manager.
