My guest in this episode is Nathan Hirsch. Nathan has bootstrapped two companies to become multi-million dollar businesses and he continues to run them today. He started the first, Portlight, in his college dorm room selling textbooks on Amazon.com in 2009. Along with his partners, he expanded to other product categories and has sold over $20 mil on the marketplace. At its peak, they were managing over 500,000 products on their Amazon store from over 1,000 drop ship suppliers.
After much frustration hiring through Upwork and other platforms, Nathan along with his business partner started their own online hiring marketplace specialized for eCommerce biz owners in Fall 2015. FreeeUp.com now services over 2,000 online businesses and they are on pace to hit $3 to $4 million this year. Nathan serves as the CEO handling client acquisition, software management, and internal team growth.
