EFP 159: Tracking A Virtual Assistant Startup

Justin Cooke

June 24, 2016

Building a startup from scratch can be challenge enough, but it’s even more difficult when you’re working with a team overseas.

In this episode, we sit down with Tom Hunt from VirtualValley.io to discuss his experiences in working with an offshore team and to look at what he’s building to help other entrepreneurs. I also asked him to share some tips that might help our listeners when working with virtual assistants.

Two Peas in the Pod – The Journey to Mastering Hiring & Training Virtual Assistants

Tom’s story isn’t so different from ours and we both have plenty of experience working with staff from the Philippines. I was impressed with his transparent approach to his startup – documenting his journey through monthly reports, openly talking about his failures (and successes) on his podcast, etc.

If you’ve hired or are looking to hire offshore this is probably a good episode for you. Aside from that, we also talk about our personal experiences in the Philippines and dig into his numbers – I think you’ll dig the show!
