I've Never Met My Coworkers: Running International Teams

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

I work with three other guys, and I've never met any of them. In fact, none of them live within 1000 miles of me. However, we manage to work together on 5-10 simultaneous projects and my business is up 300% from last year.

Building a team to help you with sub-contracting is easier than you might think. I'll tell you how I took Ennui Design from a one-man (severely overworked) effort to a four-man collective in less than three months while continuing to increase my company's gross income and my own take-home pay, all while opening up hours of my own time to enjoy life.
