At this point in the world, every business is becoming acquainted with remote work whether they have dabbled into it before or are embarking on it for the first time. The COVID-19 pandemic, in a short amount of time, has changed what “business as usual” means and how it is carried out. Our business was built on the premise of remote work and has been since day one. Our founder, Laura Renner, created Freedom Makers to marry the need for part time administrative assistance for small businesses and the need for meaningful, flexible work for military spouses. Since 2015, we have matched small businesses and entrepreneurs with skilled, experienced virtual assistants to carry out work for their business.
Dealing with all different types of small businesses and their needs over the years has afforded us the opportunity to learn, explore and utilize many online, virtual business resources. To better help our clients, our core team has had to create a strong remote team. In order to have a strong, remote team, a business must have systems in place, strong communication, and online tools that promote efficiency and success.
