It's time to take the guesswork and headache out of hiring for your small business!

You need the *right* help NOW, so that you can focus on growing your business and doing the stuff you enjoy (and stop working 24/7 doing the "little" things)

Believe me guys, I get it....

You want help in your business - you probably have a list of to-dos a mile long that you would LOVE to give to someone else to take care of. Not to mention the things that you know need to be done but have NO idea how to do yourself (like all that technical stuff, ugh!)

But where do you start? How do you go about hiring the help you need?

If you are like many of the business owners I talk to you may find yourself stuck and frustrated:

  • You are not hiring at all because you have no idea who you need to hire, let alone where to find them and what to give to them (and so you suffer through, trying to do everything on your own)
  • You have tried hiring someone but found that it wasn't a match (and actually ended up creating more work for you in the end)
  • You hired someone and it's going OK... but something feels off and you wonder what you are missing? (and are starting to question if it's even worth it)

The bottom line is this - if you truly want to make a difference with your business you can't do everything on your own (nor do you want to right?) So as frustrating as it may feel to you right now, hiring is a necessity in business... and you deserve to get the best help possible for you and your business!

Hiring can actually be surprisingly simple (even enjoyable) when you know how

Let me tell you a bit about my background and why this is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. I've been working online since 1999, and in that time I’ve played 3 roles:

  1. The virtual support professional, having worked as an Online Business Manager for various 6 and 7-figure businesses.
  2. The business owner, having hired my own team to support my growing 6-figure business.
  3. The matchmaker, having helped hundreds of business owners to find and hire the virtual support they need.

I've "been around the block" when it comes to hiring. My experience has given me the unique perspective of being able to see both sides of the coin and I can tell you unequivocally that...

There are some amazingly dedicated, talented and enthusiastic virtual support professionals out there who are chomping at the bit to work with you!

I know the virtual support industry pretty well. Not only have I worked side-by-side with an array of support professionals over the years, I’ve also been training them since 2005.

There are some great people out there ready for hire, but you need to know how to find, hire and work with the *right* ones for you and your business.

Crossing your fingers and hoping that the right person will show up is not enough (I've tried it and it doesn't work ;)

You Need a Reliable Hiring System that Supports Your Long Term Growth and Success.

Unfortunately we don’t have an HR department to take care of this stuff for us, so the responsibility falls on our plate. And if we aren't sure how to find the help we need we may default to throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping that someone - and some process - will stick!

When we are so afraid of hiring – afraid of not finding the right person, afraid of hiring the wrong person, afraid of wasting a bunch of money and then having to hire all over again – we may jump at the first person that pops up and say, “Thank goodness! I’ll just hire this person then I don’t have to deal with this anymore.”

This was the impetus for my Stop Settling Manifesto... I found myself so tired of seeing everyone struggle that I decided to take a stand! So that you no longer have to "settle" for the wrong kind of help. (If you don't have a copy of my manifesto yet click here to grab your instant download.)

Hiring from a place of wanting relief, of being afraid and not quite sure how to deal with this whole team-building thing... when you hire from that kind of shaky foundation, it’s inevitable that things will fall apart.

When you have an effective hiring process in place - as system designed to support your long-term goals as a business owner - you can easily:

  1. Find and hire the right virtual support professionals for your team (and put down the spaghetti).
  2. Create strong, healthy working relationships that add to - not take away from - your entrepreneurial energy!

Where to find this hiring system?

I'm sure you won't be surprised if I say right here (Did I just hear a sigh of relief?)

I designed the THRIVE Hiring System™ to streamline the process of finding, selecting and working with best-fit support professionals for your business. Instead of reinventing the wheel or stressing yourself out every time you need new help, you can use this proven system for hiring to support YOUR success. (And stop having to hire - and fire - so often too!).

The THRIVE Hiring System is Easy to Use and Will Work Again and Again Anytime You Need to Hire.

The 6 Modules in the THRIVE Hiring System™ will take you step-by-step through my own proven process to find, hire and work with the right people for you.

It all starts with the first 3 Modules - what we call the THRIVE Essentials:

Module #1 - Team: Who You Need and When (no more guesswork!)
  • The two key people that EVERY business owner needs to have on their team (at the very least)
  • What to outsource vs. what to keep for yourself
  • The 3 stages of business growth and who you need to hire at each stage (including organizational charts)
  • What attributes to look for in hiring a virtual support professional (This alone could make or break the success of your team!)
  • Exactly who you need to hire for your various revenue streams
  • Setting expectations to successfully work with virtual support professionals
Module #2 - Hire: Find and Hire the Right People (so you stop wasting time & money)
  • How to create a 'job description' that will appeal to quality support professionals
  • The best places to find people (including the new THRIVE Directory & Job Board!)
  • How to short-list and interview your top candidates
  • Selecting the best person for the business AND for you
  • Compensation options and negotiating rates
  • How to hire project based professionals vs. committed team members
Module #3 - Release: Letting Go To Clear your Plate (delegating the right way)
  • Why delegation doesn't work (and what to do instead)
  • Setting up a strong communication plan with your team members
  • Ensuring that you have measures of success in place
  • The 'inner game' of learning to trust and let go (which is a challenge for many of us!)

Once you've found the right support team now it's time to leverage the working relationship to truly grow your business:

Module #4 - Incentive: Compensating Your Team to Contribute to the Bottom Line (having them invested in your success)
  • Why the traditional 'pay per hour' model is flawed
  • How to pay people based on their performance and contribution to the bottom line
  • Different types of incentive based compensation (and when to use them)
  • Who should get incentives and who shouldn't
  • How to approach your team members about incentive-based compensation
Module #5 - Validate: Building Long Term Relationships With Your Team (they stay and you are happy)
  • Being a leader within your own business
  • How to deal with conflict or miscommunication
  • How to know when to fix something vs. when to fire
  • Creating an environment that entices your best people to stay long term
  • Contributing to the success and growth of your own team members
Module #6 - Expand: Next Steps as Your Business Grows (as your business grows your team will change)
  • Hiring for where you are headed and not just for where you are now
  • If/when to consider hiring employees vs. hiring contractors
  • Letting go of people who have outgrown the business (or who can't keep up)
  • The evolution of a team from start up to multiple 7-figures


 

"Tina's THRIVE program was exceptional at helping me to think through who to hire and how set the tone for the relationship. Empowering others to do work for you is no easy thing for most entrepreneurs. This program is such a great way to prepare to hire. As a result of this program, I was able to create a job description for my new virtual professional which attracted more than 30 applicants! I am thrilled with my result, and so is my new team member. Not only that, but I've got all the tools to do it again and again as I grow."

"One of the most surprising challenges I encountered when making the leap from the corporate world to the entrepreneurial world was how difficult it was for me to find, hire, and manage the right team for my business. After taking Tina Forsyth's insightful THRIVE training I realized the problem was... me! I was hiring and managing based on an outdated "employer / employee" notion. Tina's THRIVE program catapulted my thinking into the brave new world of virtual businesses and virtual teams - giving me concrete steps, tools, and tactics to use to find and retain the kind of team members you feel blessed to get out of bed each morning to work with. If you are an entrepreneur working with virtual team members, taking this course is one of the best investments you can make in your business. As an added bonus, Tina's delightful upbeat, no-nonsense attitude makes her a sheer delight to learn from!"

Of course, knowing how to hire isn't the only issue. You also want to know where to find people, right?

I totally get it, and it's been a pet peeve of mine for years now. I’ve had to point clients and colleagues in ten different directions to find the people they need.

So, when you invest in the THRIVE Hiring System™, you also get access to…

The THRIVE Directory & Job Board
A "One Stop" Resource for Finding and Connecting With
All Kinds of Quality, Virtual Support Professionals

From virtual assistants to graphic designers, copywriters to bookkeepers, everyone is under one virtual roof.

With over 300 virtual support professionals already on board (and growing every day), you will be able to search through the database for what you need based on skills, experience and expertise.

PLUS you will be able to post your jobs directly to the board and have people come to your virtual doorstep.

To Be Clear: This Is Not a 'How to Hire Folks From Overseas for $3/Hour' Program

I'm all for hiring the right person for your needs, regardless of where the person lives or what they charge. However, I have very little experience in hiring and working with people from other countries who charge these lower rates, so it’s not something we teach or include in the THRIVE Hiring System™. (Plus I'm partial to supporting those people who live closer to home, so that they get all the same great opportunities that i've had over the years.)
And a bit about my training style...

I like to keep things simple. In fact I abhor complexity (even the word ‘abhor’ is a bit too complex for me!)

My goal is for you to easily digest and start to apply this information. I want you to be able to start hiring right away without having to wade through a bunch of 'information for information's sake.' As I’ve done many times for clients, colleagues and students over the years, I will zero in on what’s important and yes, ditch the rest.

Based on my 10 years' experience working online, I've distilled into the THRIVE Hiring System™ what works best for finding, hiring and working with virtual support professionals. I truly look forward to empowering you to use and leverage these tools in your own business.

What folks have to say about Tina...

"Through conversations with Tina, together we determined that the role I needed filled most next was in truth a full-time Marketing Manager ... and not the second Online Business Manager I thought I needed and had been looking for as my next hire. Tina's mastery regarding Virtual Team Building, Onboarding, and Ongoing Team Management is unparalleled in the industry, and she's my first call as soon as the thought of expanding my team crosses my mind."

– David Neagle, Master Success Coach, DavidNeagle.com

"Tina tackling the mission critical job of helping online entrepreneurs find their ‘just right’ virtual team is going to have long-term, far-reaching and direct impact on who will reach 6 and 7 figures. As a seasoned business coach, this is something my clients must get right or struggle every step of the way. With Tina’s help, they need struggle no longer, and I am grateful extremely grateful.

Tina has a unique 3-pronged perspective that not many can claim.

(1) She’s worked as a virtual support professional for years (was my OBM for many years in fact)
(2) She’s also been the business owner hiring her own team to bust the 6-figure barrier and
(3) She’s supported business owners to build their team for nearly 10 years, using her innate talent to attract, recruit and match special people to special work.

I urge you to tap into Tina’s carefully crafted approach to hiring, and prepare to thrive."


– Andrea J. Lee, CEO The Wealthy Thought Leader, AndreaJLee.com

"Tina knows what makes someone a great virtual support professional – she’s been one, she trains them and more importantly she knows how to help entrepreneurs find the right virtual support team they need.”

– Kelly O’Neil, Marketing to Millionaires, KellyONeil.com

"Tina Forsyth is hands down the MASTER at determining which VA or OBM model works for your business. My consulting work with her taught me so much about subtleties and nuances in the VA and OBM hiring process and structure that are just the ‘upgrade’ my business needed. It’s almost like Tina’s a ‘VA Intuitive’ who can really feel just what works for your business. And work it does! I’m on the way to the next level now … so thanks, Tina!”

- Suzanne Falter-Barns, GetKnownNow.com

"Simply put, [Tina] is the best of class. She was serving as an OBM before anyone had ever heard of such a thing. She knows more about how to grow an online business than most online business owners. And, most importantly, she has the utmost integrity. She does what she says she’s going to do, and then some.”

– Michael Port, author of Book Yourself Solid, MichaelPort.com
