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.

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
