055 | Using asynchronous management to scale remote teams as a parent with Liam Martin | PT1
Show Notes

PT 1: Liam Martin is an entrepreneur and parent of one kid. He is co-founder and CMO of Time Doctor and Staff.com as well as co-organizer of the Running Remote Conference. His writing has been published in Forbes, Inc, Mashable, TechCrunch, Fast Company and recently published his first book, Running Remote.

This is the first of three mini episodes of our conversation, which took place over the summer. In this interview, we talk about securing childcare as a business tactic and his approach to asynchronous management.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:

  • His tactical approach to securing and utilizing childcare to run multiple businesses 
  • Their current monthly costs of full-time childcare and extra home support for a toddler
  • Using time blocking to swap primary caregiving duties during weekend meetings
  • Leading a remote team around the world with different remote work styles
  • The difference between asynchronous and synchronous remote work environments 
  • Why doing remote work isn't eight-hour days of back-to-back live calls and what it can be instead
  • How asynchronous management can help you scale a tech company faster than the traditional office model

Thanks to Liam for taking part of his day to speak with me about life as a remote work leader and parent!

Season 4 has been sponsored by the Startup Community Empowerment Fund, presented by Startup Canada, Mastercard, UPS and BDC.
