“You can always make more money, but you can’t get your time back.” – Nathan Hirsch
Failures to Millions
Nathan is a 28-year-old serial entrepreneur and expert in remote hiring and eCommerce. He started his first eCommerce company out of his college dorm room selling on Amazon.com, where he had sold over $25 million worth of product online.
He started buying and selling textbooks. It wasn’t until he bridged out of his comfort zone and found the baby industry product that made his business boom. Nathan may have failed a lot of times, but that doesn’t stop him from reaching his dreams.
What he loves about his job is he gets to interact with all business owners in different industries and help people. Nathan has experienced good to bad hires from different platforms that is why he decided to create his own called FreeeUp.
They pre-vet their VAs for attitude, skills and communication then only allows the top 1% as they are focused on speed and quality.
“Having a culture when you have 3 VAs is a lot easier than when you have 50 VAs so I’m really keeping that.” – Nathan Hirsch
Hiring and Outsourcing
According to Nathan, they wanted to change the way they hire people. 20 years ago, the hiring process was totally in a different way until marketplace and the remote hire came around. He would ask himself, “How much money did we make?
How aggressive do I want to be?” Once he gets all the numbers, he then can decide whether to hire or not. Challenges would always be there as people can easily come and go.
“Don’t give up if you’re hiring. Just keep focusing on what you can control and improving the aspects of your business. You’ll eventually make some really great hires.” – Nathan Hirsch
