Nicole Grinnell; How Fractional Employment Can Change Your Business

person-iconby Edparcaut calender-icon22 Jun, 2022


As entrepreneurs, we tend to wear all the hats. 

That’s especially true in the beginning. 

While it’s cool to be your own boss, it definitely has its challenges. 

As a solopreneur, you may do one or all of these jobs in one day: 

  • Sales
  • Admin
  • Marketing
  • Accounting
  • Customer Service

This list could go on and on. You get the point. 

On the latest episode of the Inner Edison Podcast with Ed Parcaut, we talked about how one company is helping solopreneurs solve the crisis of their first hire. 

We spoke with Nicole Grinnell, the founder and CEO of Bosun Solutions. As a company, they help entrepreneurs build a remote team of experts to accelerate their businesses

The Problem

As entrepreneurs, we’re focused on one thing — moving the needle. 

The problem: You keep devoting your time to tasks that don’t bring in revenue.  

Are you a frustrated solopreneur looking for a way to be more efficient? Maybe you’re a startup looking for its first team of hires.

You know you need help, but finding the right hire is hard. 

Then there are other things to consider.

  • Do I need someone to help with admin, accounting, customer service, or all three?  
  • Can one person do all those jobs well? 
  • How can I best utilize my hire for the growth of the business? 

These are all great questions. 

But what if there was a different way?

The Solution

What if you could have a team of remote experts without worrying about hiring? 

Better still, what if you could hire experts like a bookkeeper, marketing assistance, an executive assistant, or more for only the time you need them. 

Need a bookkeeper for an hour a week? No problem. 

Need a person to answer phone calls for two hours each day? You got it! 

With Bosun’s fractional employee model, you can select from a list of experts like an ala carte menu. 

You could have a team of experts all working part-time for the price of one full-time worker.

Here’s How It Works! 

We have a three-part plan. 

First, we’ll help you identify tasks that make sense to delegate to our team of experts through a strategy call. We’ll also discuss your ideal work culture and help you engineer it.  

Next, we’ll match you with one or several experts on our team. Don’t worry. We’ll walk you through the entire process, from onboarding and training to software needs and introductions. 

Finally, you can get back to the tasks that help your business move the needle forward. We’ll manage while you lead. 

Our group of fractional remote workers will improve your efficiency and your bottom line. 

This Sounds Great! What’s the Catch? 

There’s no catch! 

With our fractional employee model, you’ll be able to finally delegate tasks that take away from your bottom line. That way, you can get back to leading your business the way you want. 

You are billed only for the hours you choose. 

We only ask for a five-hour minimum, because experience has shown that we aren’t very helpful under that time. 

If you find it’s not for you, just cancel. No need to worry about firing.
