Merritt starts off the episode with a number of random personal updates – egg freezing, laser hair removal, a celebrity sighting in Dallas, and more! She also tells a gross little tale about a discovery she and her dog made in the backyard over the weekend. Trigger warning for poo! For the main topic in this episode, Merritt discusses her experience with hiring employees over the years! From where she posted job listings to finding the right fit, you’ll hear a bit about her entire hiring process as a business owner and blogger. Near the end of the episode, she brings her assistant, Liza, in to introduce her and chat about the State Fair of Texas and TX OU game! In the Beck & Call segment, Merritt answers questions about the picture frame moulding and trim in her office, as well as the worst date she’s ever been on… it’s a doozy!
