As a small business owner, do you know the importance of having diversity and inclusion in your business? Do you know the difference between them? There are so many different types of diversity, it can even mean between extroverts and introverts! That is fascinating to me. 

I needed help understanding these differences, how I can learn about them, and make my culture and small business stronger. To do that, I asked my HR consultant for over five years, Ava Smith of HR Specialities. 

Ava has been my go-to for everything HR and I consider her my life jacket in business. She handles all of my HR needs from recruiting, culture reviews, compliance assistance to even my handbook and policies. She is in my business life on a constant basis and definitely in my favorites on my phone on speed dial. 

Along with HR consulting, Ava offers diversity and inclusion training for businesses, both in-person and online. I cannot wait for you all to listen and learn from her in this episode! Please welcome Ava Smith, my personal HR consultant.
