In addition to membership benefits, YEC offers access to educational materials featuring successful entrepreneurs. [Note: The full benefit is YEC members only -- click here to find out if you qualify -- though everyone can find more videos on our YouTube channel, here.]

In this video clip, Ben Walker, CEO of Transcription Outsourcing, offers advice on what to look for to avoid making an outsourced hire who isn't a good fit for your project or company. Do your research to ensure you get a feel for the person, whether that's in person or over the phone. If they don't answer any of your questions or hesitate to answer, that's a red flag. As well, ask direct questions to find out if they've previously done the type of work required.
