Since 2012, I've been outsourcing in the Philippines.
What started out as an online marketing journey with one part-time virtual assistant (VA) has turned into a team as big as 25+, including managers, VPs, a CPA and attorney on payroll, and a blast of running an online business that has resulted in 5+ years of international travel and work.
If I may also add, Handshaking was fully bootstrapped, with no partners nor investors, with an above average sum of student loans. If you don't think you're ready for your first full-time VA, or even attorney on payroll. Well, then I'm not one to convince you 😂 but, knowing what I know now, I sure could have and should haved hired both those roles way earlier.
Maybe you simply need more manpower but NO ONE in the US wants to work for you. Or, you can't afford 3 full-time account managers even if that's what you need. But, if you're already convinced of your vision to hire outside of the US, please tell me more so we can learn together if you'd be a good match for us to work with. This could totally change both the quality and quantity of the people who are focused on your business.
