Outsourcing became the ideal solution to HR needs. Connor and the other co-founders were scaling at this time. They learned hard and became the best at hiring online. In 2015, Connor co-founded and became the CMO of FreeeUp. FreeeUp is an online hiring hub. It specializes in providing workers for the eCommerce and digital marketing industries. He and his business partners wanted a better way to hire reliable remote workers. They experienced spending valuable hours upfront on recruitment and interviews. FreeeUp is all about taking that off business owners’ plates. The company now serves over 2,000 online businesses. It is quickly becoming a top platform for hiring online.
Connor decided to write a book last year. It is called Free Up Your Business: 50 Secrets to Bootstrap Million Dollar Companies.
