• Business Operator

    Definition:

    A Business Operator is the primary force driving a team working towards fulfillment of a company vision. This may be a dedicated team of contractors, but usually includes a mixture of contractors and employees. The Business Operator is wearing multiple hats inside the business and could not afford to be replaced at fair market rate without the business crashing, additionally there is rarely enough full-time work under any individual hat to make it worth outsourcing.

     

    Most Business Operators are actively working to graduate to Business Owner.
