Blog Featured image template (52)

The best part about owning a jewelry business?


You get the choose which 18 hours you work each day!


But seriously, did you think having your own business would eat up all your time?


Truth is, it doesn’t have to.


Getting things done (I know there’s a lot) is possible without working 80 hour weeks!


Today, I have my friend Nathan Hirsch on the show with me. He is an expert in remote hiring and e-commerce.


He has sold well over 20 million dollars worth of product through his e-commerce business over the past 7 years.


He’s now the co-founder and CEO of freeeup.com, the hands on hiring marketplace connecting hundreds of online business owners through reliable, pre-vetted remote workers.freeup.com


Sounds pretty great, right?


Let’s get to it!

Simplify with Systems


With systems and processes in place, hiring an employee or remote worker is a breeze! They can follow the system you’ve created and be up and running in no time.


Training new remote workers can be a pain. Sometimes they don’t work out and within a few weeks you’re hiring someone new. With systems on your side, you won’t have to reinvent the wheel each time.


Prioritize Your Needs


It’s unrealistic to hire a bunch of people right out of the gate. Start with the thing that’s making you feel overwhelmed and find someone to take it off your plate.


Or you can start with what’s taking up most of your time. For a lot of jewelry designers it’s daily tasks that can be done by a virtual assistant. That’s the first person I hired in my business!


Find your Passion


Focus on the parts of your business you are the best at. Don’t make it harder on yourself. If a task is taking you hours to complete, consider hiring someone to save energy and get it off your plate.


You’re the Chief Visionary Officer, so it’s okay to pick and choose what you do in the business! If you’re struggling to see where you need help, hire experts to come in and audit your business. You get a fresh perspective!
