Business Growth

Build your business by using employees and independent contractors to scale your service offerings, free you up to work on your business, provide quicker turnaround on organizing services and provide a higher level of service to your clients. 

Session Objectives:

  • Learn how to scale your business using subcontractors, employees, mentors and VA’s
  • Learn to differentiate between working with employees, independent contractors, and dependent contractors
  • Acquire the knowledge necessary to determine whether an employee, IC, or DC fits your ideal business model
  • Determine whether and when is advantageous to hire assistants
  • Understand the measure of control you can exert over each type of sub-contractor
  • Determine how to price your services correctly when managing a team (NOTE: NO NUMBERS will be discussed during this – we will be fully compliant with antitrust laws).
  • Learn about the services VA’s provide and why it can make sense to hire one
  • Learn how a mentor can assist you in growing your business and how you in turn can grow your business via offering mentorship opportunities to clients, colleagues and power partners.
