Tom Hunt is a real interesting character. He told me he moved to Poland so he could finally get a bunch of work done on his startup. Before that he was living like a king in Venezuela with black market currency exchange.
His first venture was selling men’s leggings – which I can totally get behind. When I was a speedskater, my mom used to make me neon colored tights to race in!
From giving a TED talk to hosting his own podcast, Tom is all about letting people look under the hood of Virtual Valley on the way to his goal of selling it for $1 million.
Virtual Valley is a curated marketplace for Virtual Assistants (VA’s) so that you can hire someone in “7 clicks and 5 minutes”.
In this episode he will tell us how to calculate the value of our time so we know when we should be hiring someone, and how to manage our remote teams.
