Everybody talks about outsourcing, but most of them don’t have a clue about how to do it. They say just go hire somebody and he’ll take care of everything, and when you do everything gets done wrong and you end up doing it on your own… That’s how a typical remote entrepreneur hires and fails.

I wanted to avoid that and that’s why I interviewed one of the best outsourcing experts in the world – Nathan Hirsch.

Nathan Hirsch is a serial entrepreneur and expert in remote hiring and e-commerce. He is the co-founder of FreeeUp.com, a renowned marketplace for hiring VAs. 

Most recently, he’s building an educational platform designed to help remote entrepreneurs with all aspects of running a remote business called Outsourcing School!

On the Remotepreneurs podcast, we’ve talked about outsourcing and how to hire, onboard, train and manage VA’s…

You should listen to this podcast with Nathan because he has hired and managed hundreds of VAs all around the world!

Remotrepreneur’s Insights:

  • The importance of hiring – Nathan explains why you must hire if you want to grow and scale your business
  • How to hire and manage VAs – Nathan explains the entire process of hiring and managing VAs effectively and efficiently
  • How to create an effective SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) – What most people miss when creating an SOP
  • Outsource SchoolWhat’s included in the Cracking The VA Code Course

I’d rather spend 30min interviewing VA and see they’re not a good fit upfront, than wasting 3 months trying to make it work!
