What's this all about?

The goal of the Call Kent Podcast is to get my answers to your questions. You record your brief question (120 seconds or less) right from your browser. Then I listen to it later and give my response, and through the magic of technology (ffmpeg), our question and answer are stitched together and published to the podcast feed.

I look forward to hearing from you!

02.How To Deal with Hiring Developers?

Description
I have to manage my projects and outsource them, otherwise, I would never make enough money to keep my business afloat. I have this problem, where, when I start a project, the product owner will ask questions like, "What happens if you die?" and my best answer to that is, "That's why we have employees". But, when I go to hire employees, sometimes they completely just ignore the stack that I'm using and they go off and do their own thing, which becomes difficult to manage. Should I be ruling with an iron fist, or should I just be more of a liason between my clients and my developers?
