We keep hearing about the ‘recession’ that is happening at the moment – I am still not completely convinced. That said there are a number of people who have left the corporate world for whatever reason, and now they are looking for innovative ways to make money.
So why no do things a little differently?
Instead of hiring a staff member with all the costs and hassles that that entails, why not get an entrepreneur who has their own business who is prepared to and can add what you are selling, onto whatever else it is that they are selling.
What they then sell for you comes at a commission only cost to you, without all the other costs that are incurred by someone who actually works only for you.
That will bring down your ‘cost to company’ whilst increasing your turnover.
