  • As an entrepreneur, I often have to hire people.

  • Thank you so much for taking the time to interview with me today.

  • As you probably know, I create content for the Internet.

  • Thank you to square space for sponsoring today's video.

  • Oh, it says here that you double majored in history and hiding fish Well.

  • I am currently looking for an employee who has the possibility of bringing a more subtle historical approach to my channel.

  • So that's perfect.

  • I'm feeling good about this.

  • Thea.

  • Other day I asked a potential employees for their website so I could check out their work.

  • You know, do my due diligence and vet process before hiring and they said they didn't have one.

  • Though we are in a digital age where business cards and paper portfolios seem obsolete and even strange when people hand them to you.

  • Something about not having a website really screamed unprofessional to me.

  • And then I was wondering, like am I being unreasonable?

  • Because there are times that I've definitely seen websites that air so bad?

  • It's actually deterred me from working with the person on.

  • It's so easy to make a nice looking website these days.

  • I mean, I used to have to learn code when I was a teenager.

  • So not to sound like a stereotypical old person.

  • But back in my day, you needed to know HTML or JavaScript in order to make your Xanga page pop.

  • I'm accessing the schematic of the hive.

  • Now, firewall.

  • I don't even need to breach it.

  • I embedded a back door in the binary code on the hardware.

  • It's virtually undetectable to anyone who doesn't know the Internet Protocol address.

  • Damn black hat.

  • Alright, I'm in.

  • Do you want falling sparkle cats or neon pink font?

  • MM both.

  • And then I realized what was really bugging me.

  • It's what not having a website represented.

  • I mean, one of my core values and principles is investing in yourself and small business owners.

  • Take the risk of investing in your ventures again and again and again because you believe that it will pay off in the long run.

  • So someone's lack of having a website that showcase their work subtly and subconsciously communicates to me that they don't think they're worth investing in.

  • And if you're not investing in yourself, why should I?

  • And it's not just investment in your career that I think is important.

  • But investment in yourself is a human being.

  • I mean, investing time into learning new skills, money into your mental health or energy into relationships that nurture and enrich your life.

  • And no matter how small investing in things that are gonna make you a better artist, a more compassionate human or just a more joyful person, and I will admit I am a lady of modern times.

  • So I leverage my online presence in all spheres as an actress, musician and cat enthusiast.

  • So someone not having a website might be more alarming to me than, say, Ah, farmer, looking for a stable boy.

  • So what's your universal resource Locator?

  • What?

  • You're you are l your World Wide Web address, huh?

  • Look, if you don't have an http colon forward slash forward slash www dot How am I supposed to know you're a seriously capable, stable boy?
