According to global freelance matchmaker, Upwork, 57.3 million people freelanced in 2017. In 10 years, they predict that the majority of the U.S. workforce will be freelancers. As a small business owner, this means you will likely have more freelancers rather than employees performing work for you. Managing these dispersed, virtual teams can be challenging. This is where Sherry Heyl comes in. In this episode, Sherry shares how she was inspired to start Amplified Concepts as a share economy solution for freelancers. By pooling freelancers, she’s able to provide them back-office support resulting in reduced overhead for them and reduced project costs for you. She also shares best practices for managing virtual teams of freelancers so important deadlines are met without sacrificing quality. You’ll definitely want to download this episode!
