Searching For Talent--My Failure

Why is it so hard to find talented people?  I have been trying to build the Pink House Team here at Keller Williams Realty for a long time.  I have had more failures than successes.
One of my first hires sat across the interview table and explained to me how she was going to take care of me.  She told me about all of the things that she was going to take off my plate. Wow!  She really impressed me and she was referred by a mutual acquaintance.  How could I go wrong?
The first week I realized she didn't know how to spell.  That, of course, means that she couldn't spell "grammar" and did not know the definition either.  The next thing I learned was how well she loved Facebook and texting.  Sometimes I had to wait my turn to ask a question.  We sat side by side and sometimes I would glance her way and she sat slouched in her chair with 3 inch nails clacking away misspelling some email.
The next week she missed a day of work. It was some sort of family emergency.  The next week she asked me for an advance on her pay.  After that she just showed up when she felt like it and when I questioned her about it she really put me in my place.   Most of the tasks I gave her to do she gave back.
I asked myself over and over again why it is so hard to find talented people that want to work!  After all, I reasoned, I am talented and I want to work.  Can't everyone be like me?
Then one day I had had an AHA moment.  Maybe I didn't know where to look for talent and maybe I didn't know how to interview.  That was disturbing news to me but I really needed to up my game in order to find the right people.
Today I am surrounding myself with talented, awesome people.  They text and do Facebook on their own time and are helping me grow our Team with the purpose of making us all successful. !
The lesson learned?  My failures help me learn.  As long as I am "failing forward" as John Maxwell says I am doing great!
PS--Did I spell anything wrong?  My grammar?
