A Proven System to Interview, Onboard, Train, and Manage VAs to Scale your Business Faster

Anyone can be great at hiring...you just need the right processes to make it work. We've spent 10+ years perfecting ours and now we're offering it to you at an amazing price!

A Simple and Fast Solution to All Of Your Outsourcing and VA Hiring Problems

Turnover can crush a business and slow it down really fast. We know from experience. When we were scaling and hiring for our first eCommerce business, we spent years hiring the wrong person. Time and time again, we would hire someone, they’d get started, and then they’d disappear. Or their attitude was awful. Or the work quality just wasn’t there. Hours of work down the drain. Each time it happened, it set our business back. We hated it. Has this ever happened to you?

Hiring is complex. It’s not a simple task to take on as a business owner and it requires the right playbook to get you A+ hires. If you’re struggling to hire the right people, it may very well be because you don’t have the right hiring system in place yet. That’s 100% okay. We went years hiring without a good system in place…and we paid for it. Through taking this Formula, you’re going to get our exact hiring playbook so you have a strong foundation moving forward. Hiring without an effective system can and will lead to bad hires. Don’t make that mistake again.

How many tasks do you have on your plate right now? Probably too many to even count, right?! Scaling a business requires constant delegation. If you don’t, you end up working 10+ hours per day IN the business on menial and repetitive tasks. You never have time to work ON the business thinking about strategy, growth, and scale. A reliable VA can turn the tables. A reliable VA can take small, time consuming tasks off your plate so you can focus on the bigger picture. They can communicate with you each day regarding their tasks, they can take on new projects as you have them, and they can be a strong backbone to your business.

When we started building our first business, we did EVERYTHING. Bookkeeping, inventory management, customer service, product listing, sales, marketing, design…you name it and one of us did it. We loved setting everything up, but then we were stuck. We couldn’t think of how to grow because we were so wrapped up in the operations and nitty-gritty of the business. Sound familiar? We knew something had to change and that’s when we were introduced to the idea of virtual assistants. It would be one of the most game changing discoveries we ever made. And it set us on a new path towards being actual business owners and not just business doers.

Communication is everything when managing people. Whether in an office or remote, a team can’t reach their highest potential without effective communication. Without set communication channels and check ins set up, teams can disconnect and lose focus on growing the business. We’ve seen it happen plenty of times with our companies and with clients we’ve worked with. It absolutely cannot be something that you overlook. It can make or break the future growth of your business. We’re here to make sure that you don’t make that vital mistake and that you have a proven communication playbook for managing your team. You ready?

Is your team all A players? Is there anyone on the team that holds the entire team back? One bad egg can poison the entire team and slow growth. In our 10+ years of hiring, we’ve seen plenty of bad eggs and their immediate impact on the rest of the team. If you’re dreaming of growing a dream team and scaling faster, you need to be critical in your interview and onboarding processes. Looking at just one’s resume and skills isn’t enough. You need to look at their cultural fit, their communication habits, and their overall attitude. With these criteria, you can pick the A players out of the haystack and build a team focused on driving growth for your business. Don’t you wish you had all A players?

Hiring a virtual assistant doesn’t have to be full time. I repeat, you do not have to hire a virtual assistant for 40 hours per week. Virtual assistants are amazing hires because you can start them at 5 or 10 hours per week then slowly increase their hours as your business grows and you can afford them for more time. If you’re thinking that this Formula is only for people hiring full time VAs, please know that you can hire virtual assistants for as little as 5 to 10 hours per week and still utilize the systems and processes from the Formula.

100%. Virtual assistants don’t only work for one type of business. They can work with Amazon sellers, Shopify store owners, real estate agents, SASS companies, agencies, restaurants, coaches, and tons of other businesses. If you have repetitive tasks that you need to take off your plate so you can focus on more important things in your business, a virtual assistant is exactly what you need. In the Formula, you’ll learn all about the systems and strategies that you can apply to your business (no matter what it is) so you can save more time and money on a daily basis.

Great question! We get this one all of the time. Virtual assistants range between $5 to $10 per hour depending on their experience and the skill set that you’re looking to hire them for. We go into this in more depth in the Formula as well giving you a good baseline for what to expect when it comes to pricing for virtual assistants and how it can change slightly when you’re looking to hire someone more specialized like a web developer or expert copywriter.

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, this system is perfect for you. We’ve spent 10+ years recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and managing hundreds of virtual assistants while scaling our 2 businesses, one which was sold with a team of 45+ VAs. We had the same exact struggles hiring and we never could find a reliable source of information online that could give us the playbook we needed. So we went out and built it ourself. This system will give you the exact steps you can take to build your dream business with a reliable and skilled team of VAs. You owe it to yourself to use this system so you can truly scale your business how you want to.

Definitely! The systems and processes that are outlined in the formula are skills that you’ll need while growing your business now and in the future. The crazy thing…you’ll probably need these skills faster than you can imagine right now. The day that you get run down with too many repetitive tasks is the time that you’ll want this information so you can easily and quickly pass it off to a virtual assistant. Wouldn’t you rather gain the skills now than scramble to learn them once you’re already overwhelmed with work?

By the end of the formula, you’ll have a system and set of processes that you can use time and time again to remove work from your plate and pass it off to a reliable virtual assistant. You’ll gain the freedom to work on what is most important in your business so that you can keep growing without pausing because of too much work on your plate.

Who are Nathan and Connor?

Nathan Hirsch and Connor Gillivan are 10+ year entrepreneurs. They built their first eCommerce business to $25 million in total sales using virtual assistants. Then, they scaled and sold their second company, FreeUp, with a 100% remote team of virtual assistants. They have been recognized on 250+ podcasts such as Entrepreneur on Fire and were on the Entrepreneur 360 List for two years in a row commending them as one of the best entrepreneurial companies in America. 

Why trust us to teach you outsourcing?

We’re entrepreneurs just like you. 

For 10+ years, we’ve been working together scaling digital businesses with remote teams and we’ve had to learn from our own mistakes.

For years, we struggled, hired the wrong people, ran into turnover, and were frustrated with the current education out there surrounding hiring and scaling with virtual assistants. 

With our first eCommerce business, we scaled it to a team of 30+ virtual assistants and sold over $25 million on the Amazon Marketplace.

With our second business, FreeUp, we scaled it into a team of 45+ virtual assistants and $12 million in yearly revenue from a $5,000 initial investment. 

In 2019, we sold FreeUp and the team of 45+ virtual assistants to The HOTH. 

After scaling and selling FreeeUp, we decided it was time that we share our exact systems for how we did it so other entrepreneurs could replicate our success.

We wanted to create a better online education where entrepreneurs could really learn how to scale with a remote team and avoid all of the pitfalls we had to fight through. 

If you’re looking to scale your business with a team of remote virtual assistants, Outsource School offers you 10+ years of our own experience and all of the systems that we’ve tested and tweaked.

We’d love to help you achieve your dream business. We hope you’ll give us a shot!

"Thank Gang. Ended up hiring the second one and she is starting Monday. Used both the scripts from the interview and onboarding modules.

Pitch & Profit
"Absolute game changer. My only regret is not opting in sooner. I hemmed and hawed and was like, I could read a book or listen to a blog post or trust my gut, lol, but no. I think Outsource School finally cemented for me that I'll grow a monster business if I buy training and if I buy information (something I've always been reluctant to do.) Sure, I could figure it out on my own, through trial and error, but that is going to take too much time and it's going to be too expensive. I have clear revenue goals and I want to get there as quickly as possible. And I'll get there faster if I learn from Nathan and Connor and I'll get there faster if I hire a team. I am so freaking psyched that I found Outsource School!"
Lisa Harrington
"I love what Connor and Nathan are doing with this membership program. It started as a single training (on its own, already worth the membership price), and then suddenly the whole thing BLEW UP. So much high caliber content is released daily that it's hard to keep up. I've been hiring and training for my own business and for clients for 3 years now and thought I knew what I was doing, and then the program came and pointed out so many gaps in my processes that I wasn't aware of. I watched the main trainings and playbooks a couple of times and improved my hiring and leadership processes significantly. The VAs I hire for my clients are of higher quality and I can instruct them (my clients) better how to manage their new employee. This program is a no brainer...just hop in"
Barak Almog
"Nate and Connor have built an amazing membership. I wanted it to learn how to better set my company up for success with VAs on our team. This is the real deal and quite frankly the best deal on getting a handle on your business systems anywhere!"
Will Hinkson
Warriors Guide to Business
"I'm an Outsource School Insider and I'm really enjoying the trainings and incredible support. These guys really care about building a valuable experience that actually moves businesses forward. The intro itself will elevate your own thinking on how to better sell your own services! Highly recommended."
Jenn Morgan
Radically Distinct
"Love Outsource School. Within the first week, I was already able to implement various steps from the program, from hiring to onboarding and even to firing someone. The playbooks were super helpful, but the community has also been tremendously valuable too. Being able to get help directly from Nathan Hirsch and his team (even some of their VAs who have been sharing great insights from their perspectives) made the cost of joining the program a no-brainer. Highly recommend Outsource School to anyone who's looking to scale their business."

We want to see you succeed...

We never had the guidance we needed when scaling our businesses remotely. 

It slowed us down, set us back, and forced us to learn from our own mistakes. 

Hell, it took us at least 5 years initially to understand how it could be done effectively.

We created Outsource School and Cracking the VA Code so you don’t have to endure the same frustrations.

If you’re struggling to make a decision, think of all the tasks you have on your plate. Think of the areas of the business where you should be focusing. And think of the business that you’d ideally want to be running. 

If you’re imagining a business where you have a team of reliable, affordable virtual assistants handling all operations while you focus on growth, you’re in the right place. 

We want to see you succeed and we’ll be there for you as you make it through all of the content in Outsource School. 

Best case scenario, you walk away with a proven system for hiring and scaling with virtual assistants. 

Worst case, you feel like you really didn’t get what you expected and we’ll give you a full refund.

Like we said above, we’re not here to cheat anyone. 

We love scaling remote teams and we want to share that passion with you so you can do it too.
