Oh cruel (and fat) SumoGod! As soon as I get SO busy that I need to hire someone, it sucks up MORE of my time just to hire them?? Fortunately Chief Sumo Noah Kagan has been through this a million times before.

He’s also famously impatient... so he’s developed a system that literally eliminates all the crappy candidates automatically and only shows him the cream-of-the-crop (and we Sumos LOVE cream).
The way he does this is by using four tools that EVERYONE has:

  • Google Spreadsheets
  • Google Forms
  • Excel
  • Gmail
  • ...that’s it.

With this system he automates the whole hiring process by setting up clever obstacles for people to jump over... and having the software filter all the crappy candidates.
