E52 – Nathan Hirsch – How to Hire Great People

Nathan Hirsch is a 28 year old serial entrepreneur who is an expert in hiring remote workers and eCommerce business. He co-founded his first company out of his dorm room in 2009 drop shipping products on Amazon.com and built it to sell over $20 million worth of products over 5 years. While scaling, Nathan discovered the power of outsourcing and ended up building an remote army of freelancers. 

In 2015, Nathan co-founded and become the CEO of FreeeUp, an online hiring marketplace focused on connecting businesses with the top 1% of online workers in eCommerce, digital marketing, virtual assistance, and web development. The company has been growing at rapid paces (500%+ YoY) and has quickly become a top destination to hire online for over 2,500 businesses around the world. 

Nathan has built his personal brand to be synonymous with online hiring and entrepreneurship through over 75 guest appearances on top podcasts: Entrepreneur on Fire with John Lee Dumas, Eventual Millionaire, and handfuls more. He continues to share his knowledge on building remote teams with everyone he comes in contact with and just recently joined the faculty at CEO Space.
