Dan and Ian have been running the business for the past six months, and it is still very much in the early stages.
But as the business has evolved over that time, they’ve learned a lot of things that they didn’t expect.
On today’s podcast, we’re sharing five things that we have learned in the last 180 days of running a new productized services business.
And later in the episode, we’ll be discussing some specific numbers, goals, and takeaways from the genesis of Dynamite Jobs.
You’ll also hear three reasons why we think the remote hiring process isn’t working for a lot of entrepreneurs.

- How businesses can be built around “$2000 Operators”. (28:55)
- Why compensation is about more than just a number. (35:52)
