Beginning August 27th, Remote Professionals, an organization I belong to and highly endorse, will launch its first Mentor Program series.
This 12-week program will meet for one hour per week to offer essential information to those new to providing services remotely. This series has recruited some of the most experienced names in independent outsourcing to offer the information you need to get your business running smoothly and quickly.
The Mentor program offers the information that the “old hands” wish they had known when they first started. Our goal is to help you shorten the learning curve, start out making more money and endure fewer costly mistakes.
There will be three classes each on the topics of getting started, business identity, managing your business, and marketing your business (eg, getting those first — and subsequent — clients)!
Our classes include:
* Importance of Contracts
* Financial Planning
* Niche Selection
* Web Presence
* Scheduling and Organizing your Time
* Data Security and Client Confidentiality
* Tax/Corporate Structure
* Social Networking
* Marketing Yourself Online
* Selling and Subcontracting
Each segment will provide a presentation and the opportunity to ask questions and make valuable, personal contacts with peers entering and already established in the outsourcing industry.
