The thinstaff story
Thinstaff was founded on a simple idea; “To provide small businesses, freelancers, and start-ups with access to practical services and solutions to help them succeed”
Founded by Dallas based entrepreneur, Jon Hanley, the team at Thinstaff was built based on insights from successful and failed ventures, along with conversations with other business owners.
“One conversation struck me. It was with a business owner who was at their wits end. They didn’t need mentoring, consultants, or advice from a magazine article. They needed pragmatic assistance to actually run aspects of their business. The business owner said…“
I’m so overwhelmed with running my company. I no longer have time to do what I enjoy. Finances are tight and I can barely afford to pay for a thin staff to help keep things afloat. It feels like I will never get ahead.
This was a real problem that business owners all over the world experience. After working through it a hundred different ways Jon and the team realized that the challenge of maintaining a thin staff was actually a major opportunity. The concept of “thinstaffing” came to life.
(verb) thin • staff • ing
Getting important work done by accessing online services, technology solutions, and fractional talent so you can avoid hiring full time staff, paying expensive professional consultants, or making high cost capital investments.
Thinstaffing empowers the self employed, start-ups, freelancers, and small businesses to get critical work done, with quality, on a lean budget.
To help business owners start “thin staffing” we brought a variety of quality business solutions, many of which we personally used, together in one place for anyone to research, access, and review.
