Using Interns to build your businessBy
Can you get people to come and work in your business for free?According to James Brausch it depends on selling your Vision.
James has a product called the Freedom Business System I haven’t purchased it, but I am definitely impressed by his approach.
He utilises interns and Virtual Assistant’s interchangeably.
To do this successfully requires good training and laying out procedures and systems for them to follow without the Intern having to spend too much time interacting with you.
We’ve done a couple of projects for him and I’ve seen how he lays out his tasks, it’s impressive, I think he uses the same camtasia videos for his interns as he does for the VA’s
A couple of clients (so they are good guys not bullshitters) I know quite well follow his methods and they speak highly of him.
If you don’t know who James Brausch is he is a very direct in your face type of person, some may say even obnoxious. However his results stack up so he has that going for him.
My questions are these:
Do you have training material that you can use to teach people to do the tasks in your business?
Have you got skills that other people want to learn from? e.g. you might be a successful Life Coach, Personal Trainer or Internet Marketer, if so it’s possible that there are people who would like to learn from you in return for a couple of hours a day.
What are your experiences working with interns or even being one?
