Our March event was focused on how freelancers can help us grow our business, and how we can manage our health to achieve optimum performance.
Both of our speakers shared their knowledge and expertise in ways which will continue to add value to the business owners for many years.
How to build your business using freelancers
It is really easy to get overwhelmed by your to-do list when you are running a growing business.
You know how hard you work to get everything ready for your deadlines. Long hours can turn to exhilaration as you see the results.
How resilient are you? How long can you work long hours before it starts to affect your efficiency or your health?
Using freelancers and an outsourced team can give you the flexibility you need without committing to putting someone on payroll all the time. Yet it’s not quite a simple as telling everyone you pay ‘You’re self-employed’. Ask Uber or Amazon.
It is not as hard as it looks to go from overwhelm to outsourced – but it does take some key steps and some key information to make it work.
Annabel will be exploring how to hire freelancers without losing control of your data or copyright and where HMRC and even employment tribunals can suddenly appear and hand you an unexpected bill!
Learn to be a genius of outsourcing as you grow your business.
Annabel has spent almost 40 years helping growing businesses sort out the practical and legal side of paying people. In 2009 she got really interested in the gig economy and how flexible working and outsourcing could work or hurt.
She has spent the last few years helping business get real REAL value from the people they pay and filling the gaps that most entrepreneurs leave wide open for trouble.
