06-your-own-support-teamIt’s a spooky time of year so in our current Art Gush online education installment we are currently working on video/PDF course 6 of 9 in the “How to Create a Web Publication” series that will haunt you (in a good way). This episode is perfect for any goblins who want to have their very own support team of ghouls.

Hi. I’m John Yianni Stamas and I have a question for you. Is the idea of putting together your own support team a spine tingling concept full of fear? The good news for solopreneurs is that these days you can overcome being scared by now having access to special online services. These services make it very much like having one’s own group of other worldly helpers.

Putting together a group of freelancers means you don’t need to deal with with the frightening aspects of having actual employees. Sites like Fiverr make it possible to do things with your witch or warlock kettle of media such as creating a website at a very low cost.

Many solopreneurs try to do everything all by themselves – a “Ghost of All Trades” so to speak. But this is difficult, even impractical. For those who like working primarily alone but realize they can’t do it all themselves, hiring online freelancers can be a good fit for getting out from beneath the cobwebs.

When you hire freelancers online your communication with them is primarily by email which allows you to think through your business and art choices without the pressure of having to perform well in front of others. You can even wear your Dracula cape at the computer if you want.

So for more information on forming your every own support team check out webisode #6 of 9 in the “How to Create a Web Publication” series and make staying alone in your tomb a thing of the past!
