Danielle Mulvey is a former flight attendant-turned-entrepreneur who has cracked the code on recruiting, hiring, and retaining what she refers to as “5-Star Employees”.  

Never one to settle for average, Danielle has scaled her several companies to over $50 million in annual revenue while spending less than 10 hours each week overseeing their operations. 

Danielle’s own team of trusted 5-Star Employees provides her with the freedom to spend the rest of her workweek guiding other entrepreneurs through podcasting, workshops, and community curating. 

In addition to running her companies and assisting other entrepreneurs, Danielle is the Chief Curator of The ALL IN Company Community, which strategically advises other entrepreneurs on attracting and hiring 5-Star Employees. She has been developing, testing, and sharing these ideas for more than 10 years now, with a staggering 90% success rate! Danielle attributes this success to her undeniable gift to identify and nurture 5-Star Employees. She knows in order to succeed, leaders need to get comfortable with the uncomfortable and go all in on their employees, who will reciprocate and go all in on the company.


In this episode, Dean Newlund and Danielle Mulvey discuss:

  • Casting a wide net 
  • Hiring based on alignment 
  • Why is it important to be aligned 
  • The difference between limber and flexible


Key Takeaways:

  • One out of seven candidates is a potential five-star employee. The key is to cast a wide net, attracting as many candidates as possible and getting out of the box with your recruitment strategies. 
  • Hire people who are aligned with your true core values. That’s the foundation of any business. If people aren’t aligned, the relationship will not last.  
  • If you don’t love what you’re doing, you’ll go to work and be in pain the whole day through. This is a great cause for inefficiency in the workplace, people can’t go into flow and they’ll probably tap out  after three hours at work. 
  • If you’re an employer, you’re looking for limber people, not flexible people. A limber person is someone who’s amenable to change, not rigid, someone who can go with the flow and do what’s asked of them. 

“When you’re working with like-minded people who have the same core values, I mean, that’s where the magic happens..” —  Danielle Mulvey
