We’re back and today we are chatting with Nathan Hirsch, creator of Freeeup.com (which he just recently sold) and the upcoming Outsource School. This whole conversation is around finding the right team members, what should of criteria you should have for finding the right team members, what sort of things you should hire for, how to hire if you don’t feel like you are ready financially, and pretty much everything you need to know about getting good team members in place and what sort of things to be prepared for in this process.
Nate’s passions lie in running great companies but also hiring great people and having an awesome culture around that. We even touched on how the acquisition came to be and his exiting the business as well as the criteria Nathan set to make sure it was acquired by the right people who will run the business in almost the same way as he, in a way that is the most beneficial for not only his customers14 but his employees. After you’ve listened, be sure to check out our shows with Tim Francis and Gina Horkey for even more tips on how to find and hire the right people to make your business run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
