Hiring any bodyguard is a good move. Hiring the bodyguard is a boss move. Check out these 5 tips on hiring the best:
Know what you need
Before you let a bodyguard service tell you what they offer, get a firm handle on what it is you need. Prioritizing your requirements for bodyguard services will make it easier to determine if a company is satisfactory to your wishes. Be clear on the purpose of the service, your daily risks and worst-case scenarios. This will help narrow down which bodyguards for hire are best for you.
Make sure the company is certified and licensed
You do not want to be looked after by amateurs. Check out the company right away to make sure they are certified and licensed. This ensures that their bodyguards are professionally trained, therefore adequately prepared to keep you safe in the lightest to the most dangerous situations. Professionally trained guards make the job look easy and keep their protection of you nearly unnoticed. That’s good; that’s exactly what you want.
Physical skill is a must and the first priority, but being technologically savvy should take a close second. Your guard should be able to communicate with you, with their team and with home base at all times and with ease. Daily tasks can operate more smoothly with advanced tech, and heightened risk situations are saved by it. If there is a particular tech platform you run on with your team, family or office, make sure your guard can conform.
They can keep you safe, but can they promise to be there every night? Life inevitably unfolds unexpectedly, and you need a guard or a team you can rely on in any event. Make sure you have a clear understanding of expected availability, willingness and ability to accommodate schedule changes and last minute requests.
It’s important to trust your bodyguard. You don’t have to be best friends, but you should absolutely have a connection. We all get different vibes from people we walk next to. Make sure you bodyguard checks all the boxes above and additionally, sits right with your personal energy. You are entering into a relationship with your guard and expecting to trust your life in their hands. Be selective.
