What better way to kick off 2015 than with a rapid-growth offensive attack across several niche markets where revenue is free for the taking?
To some of you, the concept of virtual recruiting and agile team building with people you’ll likely meet only once in life – if at all – is… well… the business definition of foreign. If you’re among that group, you’d better play catchup, and quickly.
Sure, assembling and working with a virtual staff has its pitfalls, one of which is time zones. Another is the inability to meet in person regularly, as well as countless language and / or cultural differences.
But when done strategically, based on aggressive growth modeling and agile thinking, the pros of this agile business building approach far outweigh the cons. The benefits include:
- In the last decade, the Internet’s rapid evolution has made doing business from a distance both easy, and…

- HUGE Cost-Savings, and yes, this is only amplified by working with staff overseas
- ZERO geographical constraints
- Fast prospecting and easy hiring for contracts and temporary jobs
- Physical office requirements? Minimal to None.
Even knowing these facts, it’s not uncommon to feel you’re going to be duped or taken advantage of, very common in first-time outsourcing business owners / start-ups.
And your fear of trustworthiness in outsourcing talent does end up becoming a reality for some.
However, it’s my job to show you how to get this and other agile business processes right the first time. The inevitable trial-and-error comes with any hiring scenario, be it physical or virtual requisition.
