Outsourcing: What to Know Before Hiring Your First Or Next VA – A Fireside Chat w/ Rachael & Dustin

“We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone…” – Sandra Day O’Connor


As a new business or product shop owner, in the early days, it’s normal to “wear all the hats” and be responsible for every task and project that happens day to day in your company or brand. We can all agree that the grind is necessary to get things up off the ground. However, if you REALLY want to scale and even grow to a new level…it may take a team. 


What most entrepreneurs don’t know is that a “team” doesn’t require them to have a fancy office building, multiply six figures ready to cover the payroll, or deal with questions like “Is my spouse covered on our dental program?” 


It’s true! You can create a team around the world covering some of your most important tasks for as little as $1-$3 an hour! Luckily for you, our guests today know exactly how to make this happen in your business. 


Welcome back to the Rainmaker Family Show! Today we have Rachael and Dustin back for another great conversation. If you have listened for a while, you probably have heard about our Rainmaker Mastermind Community. This is where we drop some of our elite-level marketing and business tips!
