In this episode…

Integrity is important in life, but especially so in business. When hiring and managing an employee, sometimes difficult conversations have to take place. What are the best ways to handle situations where employees have acted without integrity? Are there ways to proactively deal with potential, incoming, or ongoing employees?

For Robert Hartline, those conversations begin early, namely day one. Robert likes to communicate the core values of the company immediately in a new hire class so that the importance of integrity is stressed from the beginning. In that onboarding class Robert shows examples of former employees who have acted without integrity, sometimes even leaving the job in handcuffs.

Thankfully, Robert has great experiences with employees, as well. One of the things he is really proud of is when a seasoned employee starts their own business. Even if they may end up as a competitor by starting their own wireless store, Robert will happily share with them all he knows to help them find success.

Rise25’s mission is to connect you with your best referral partners and customers.

We connect you with strategic partnerships through our done for you podcast solution which is the best thing I have done for my business.

Our Done for you Podcast service – We help your company completely run and launch your own podcast and make sure you get ROI from it.

We distribute your show across more than 11 different channels (spotify, google play, itunes, and many more) including a dedicated blog post and social media. You simply show up and talk and we do everything else. Our team has been working with podcasters since 2009. I personally credit podcasting as the single best thing I have done for my business and my life. It has allowed me to connect with the founders/ceo’s of P90xAtariEinstein BagelsMattelRx Bars, and many more. Besides making best friends and finding my business partner, podcasting has led to relationships with countless customers and referral partners.

The most important piece that most are missing is the right strategy and we make sure our clients get ROI so it becomes one of the most valuable parts of your strategic partnerships.

Since this requires a lot of humans (we have operations, developers, writers, audio editors, video editors) to do the work we have limited bandwidth and only want to work with the right company. If using a podcast for strategic partnerships, content marketing, and increasing clients and referrals sounds interesting to you go to and contact us or email support (at)
