What’s Better? A Network of Solopreneurs or a Team of Employees?

With Eve Epstein

The Growing Your Team Podcast Episode 66

As you expand from a business of one to a business with a team, what kind of team is best for you? A team of freelancers and contractors, a team of employees, or a mixture?

Eve Epstein shares how to determine what type of team is best for you and how to properly use that team so you can feel supported and continue growing your business. 

About Eve Epstein:

Eve Epstein is the CEO and Co-Founder of SoleVenture. SoleVenture is a single solution that automates business setup and compliance, benefits enrollment, tax estimation, and invoicing for new freelancers.

Eve practiced labor and employment law at the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Treasury Employees Union in Washington, DC and served as in-house counsel in one of the largest privately held Professional Employer Organizations.

From her years of practicing labor and employment law, she saw that the workforce changed. By 2028, more than half of the US workforce will be freelancing. She started SoleVenture to offer self-employed workers the financial security and benefits of traditional employment.

In this Episode You’ll Hear:

  • How more than half the workforce will be self-employed in the next few years
  • How hiring freelancers allows you to hire expert-level knowledge at an affordable price
  • Why a team of freelancers is not like a team of employees, and how you can build an effective team of both
  • How to properly transition someone from being a contractor to your employee
  • Why you need to stop assuming that every business you work with wants to merge with you (Sounds crazy, but you might be thinking this without realizing it!)
  • How to effectively work with a remote team and why trust is highly important
  • Why you don’t need to know how to do a job but you must understand the role before you add it to your team
  • Freelancing trends you should watch out for as you scale your business
