NOW IN CASE YOU DON’T
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Eben Pagan. I’m the founder and ceo of over 10 different online virtual businesses that I grew to over 7 figures from scratch. 4 of which to over 10 million. Combined, my businesses have generated over 100 Million in sales to date with over 75+ employees all across the world.
And I did this all 100% virtually.
WHAT DO I MEAN BY ‘VIRTUALLY”?
I mean that I built all of my businesses in an 100% online virtual environment working from home and all my team members working from home as well.
And as result, I’ve been able to build a network of businesses that allows me to completely control my lifestyle and my work environment.
I set my own schedule and I work whenever I want wherever I want.
I can travel and be on the road and I can run my business entirely from my laptop or phone given an internet connection.
I haven’t had to ‘commute’ or be forced to ‘dress professionally’ unless I wanted to (for many years) and it’s given me the freedom I want to live life as I see fit.
NOW I WASN’T ALWAYS AN EXPERT
at building and growing businesses online and in the virtual
In fact I started from the bare bottom. Not knowing what it even was. I had to learn everything for myself. When I started my first company I had to learn how to set a website up and how to use an online shopping cart and so on.
I started to realize that I was spending a lot of time handling customer support issues, answering emails, and handling all of tedious little tasks that wasn’t good leverage of my time. But at the time I was still working out of my own bedroom using a cheap computer and I didn’t have the funds to hire an in house employee.
Then I found out about outsourcing and virtual hiring. And I was able to find and hire my first virtual assistant for $6/hr completely virtually. (She went on to work for me for many years and I didn’t actually meet her in person until several years later).
At first I was scared about the trust and the language barrier, but it turned out that she was great at what she did.
That’s when I came to my realization. The internet had given me the ability to run my business entirely online and virtually without incurring all the high startup costs of a traditional brick and mortar store.
So I decided that I would keep my business lean and virtual and I kept building my business and my team online.
I made a ton of mistakes over the years with hiring and managing and working out the nuances of running 100% virtual business, but in the end I managed to figure it out and come up with the systems and SOP’s that I use when starting a new virtual business or restructuring new businesses I get into to be virtual.
Over the years I’ve had lots of people asking me what these systems and SOP’s were for building a virtual business or restructuring an existing business to go virtual, so I decided to create a program teaching you all of it.
