Even though the word "remote" is part of a "remote local" business, that doesn't mean you have to start it remotely.
In this episode Neel makes arguments for both sides, for starting a remote local business in your hometown and for starting it completely remotely. He covers things like:
- Why sometimes a local presence can help you win, particularly with community marketing
- Why sometimes a local presence can slow your growth — Neel shares how he could have systematized remote hiring faster had he not fallen back on the ease and comfort of local presence
- Why time zones play a much bigger role, even within the US, than people can imagine.
Neel argues for both sides and points out that ultimately, it's about what the individual business owner's priorities are that will determine the best place to start the business.
