Have you reached a point in your business where you need more than one (or two or three) people to grow. Maybe you need someone to handle your social media, manage your inventory or put your marketing plan into motion. Perhaps you simply need someone to sort through the thousands of emails in your inbox.

In todays episode I'm chatting with Nathan Hirsch former partner of recently acquired freelance recruitment platform Free-Up and now director of Outsource School.

Together we explore the benefits of hiring freelances and VAs, how to bring remote staff into your business, where to find them and how to interview them. We dive into the management process and how to make a remote team feel connected to your vision and your business.

If you've been exploring ways to grow your team and want to avoid the common pitfalls. Or have a remote staff but are sick of flaky hires or losers who stop showing up after a couple of weeks; this episode is for you.

You started your business because you knew there was a better or different way to solve a problem or provide a product. You invested everything in to growing that business; nurturing it, carrying it, making it all look effortless and easy.

And then one day you wake up and it's not enough any more. You've hit a plateaux. You want more. Then what?

On this weeks episode I'm super excited to be joined by Michael Bernoff, speaker and author of Average Sucks. We work through the steps you need to take to move what you have, closer to what you want and explore why being happy with Average will stop you from realising your dreams.

You've worked hard to build an eco friendly, socially aware or sustainable brand and then at the end of the process you find yourself sending your goods in a horrible old plastic courier satchels.

I'm so excited to be joined this week by Rebecca and Kate from New Zealand based business the Better Packaging Company. Despite only two years in business these girls are rocking the establishment with an extensive range of 100% home compostable, AS Certified, plant based packaging products specifically designed for retail and ecommerce businesses.

This is the guilt free alternative to mountains of standard issue courier bags.

Kate and Rebecca join me and share the motivation behind their business, how they're offering retailers and ecom businesses an alternative to standard plastics and how you can make a positive impact with even the smallest of business decisions.
