'No rules rules' book image

Recently, the co-founder of Netflix wrote a controversial book tilted:

“No Rules Rules”

It has gotten some harsh criticism for their quick-firing practices.

A one-star reviewer said:

“This book offers a good guideline on how to create a business culture that treats your employees like trash. His philosophy of using people and spitting them out when they no longer are useful to him really speaks to his character as a person. His idea of “generous severance” is also a joke compared to many other companies.”

Except …

There’s a good reason why Netflix would immediately “fire” their employees.

Netflix doesn’t have the
traditional pyramid structure.

There is no CEO at the castle top.

There is no list of henchmen executives at the bottom controlling their employees.

But for this “No Rules” system to work …
Netflix needs high-performing team members.

High-performing team members at Netflix can make multi-million dollar decisions … without consulting a higher-level executive.

Giving this power to their employees is risky.

This is why they must be strict at quickly firing employees who are under-performing.

However, the benefit is they can innovate extremely fast. And blow throw their competition.

Now, if Netflix were to build a yard sign marketing team, they’ll want to find who on their team is a “high-performer”.

In that case, they’ll need our software.

SimpleCrew helps you spot who
is a high performer on your team

Our software helps you to do the following:

  • Watch over your sign placer.
  • See how they place your yard signs.
  • Measure their progress and track their performance over time.

Sometime this month,
SimpleCrew will release a two-person plan.

At a very low price of $19/mo.

Which is great for a business owner who is managing 1 sign placer.

More details on this plan is coming soon.

In the meantime, pick up the Reed Hastings book “ No Rules Rules”. It’s a really interesting read.

Alright. That’s enough about books.

Time to kick back and watch some Netflix 😎

Not sure if SimpleCrew is right for you?
