Are you a business owner without enough time to get it all done?
Let’s face it: running a business is tough, especially as a solo entrepreneur.
You’re wearing a ton of hats, with a to-do list that never seems to end. You’re overwhelmed, overworked, and way over qualified to do all the little tasks that need to be done. And you still need to keep your eye on the prize: to make more money.
It’s not your fault that you’re drowning in all the work that needs to be done to run a profitable business. But I have to tell you something…
You’re playing it safe and that’s hurting you!
When you are the person who is doing everything in your business, even if you outsource a little, you really are doing yourself – and your business – a disservice. By keeping so many tasks on your plate, you are allowing your business to run the show, when YOU should be running it.
To start focusing on business growth, not business ‘stuff’, you need to get help — and fast.
But you feel stuck. You don’t want to risk hiring more staff. After all, will the work they do pay for itself – and make some money for you too?
But you know you can’t grow business without talented, enthusiastic help!
You CAN grow your business and have more time to yourself when you know the secret to creating a team who are willing to work for FREE
I know you can because I have done it myself.
I’m Shannon Cherry, and I own, not one, but three different and profitable businesses. Since the beginning of my solo entrepreneur journey in 2002, I’ve always had a group of motivated, creative and talented individuals willing to do the tasks I did not care for or could not do. And the best part… they worked for free!
How did I get qualified people to work for me for nothing?
I created my own internship program where I hire interns to do the work. Interns are smart folks of all ages looking for mentorship, and they are often willing to trade on the job experience and training, among other benefits, for little to no pay.
How do I know this?
I got my own big break when I was accepted as an intern at ABC-TV. I honed my skills in three months and was hired at that same station while I was still in college.
Most people think internship programs are for big companies with already big staffs. But the fact is any business – no matter what the size – can have its own internship program. As a solo entrepreneur working from my home, many of my interns are virtual workers, meaning they never come to my home to get their work done.
Imagine how much time and money a team of interns can save you… allowing you to work on more profitable endeavors to keep growing your business…
And although creating an internship program is relatively easy, there are a lot of pieces and parts you must do correctly in order to have a continuing stream of new team members who are ready, willing and able to help you with your projects and tasks.
- Understand your role as the internship program coordinator.
- Determine which jobs you should be outsourcing to interns and how to label the tasks correctly to find the most qualified interns to take the job.
- Create job descriptions that potential interns get excited about.
- Discover where potential interns are waiting to hear from you. (If you think interns are just college students, you are missing out on a boatload of qualified candidates.)
- Design marketing materials that get interns fired up to start working for you right away.
- Vet your intern candidates to make sure you’re not getting any slackers.
- Establish great trainings and educational opportunities for your interns. (This is a MUST if you want to make sure your internship program is legal and ethical.)
- and much more
- Sample Job Description – You need job descriptions that entice interns. This sample is one of my very own that consistently brings in three (3) 12-hour-per-week interns. (That’s 36 hours a week of free help!)
- Sample Internship Contract – You need an agreement for your intern to mentor and work with you. Besides covering you legally, this also gives you added assurance your intern is fully-committed to working with you.
- Sample Non-Disclosure Agreement - You need to keep your trade secrets… well, secret. Everyone who works with you, even those working for free, should sign this.
- Sample Philosophies and Policies Manual - It’s difficult to understand the culture of any business and what’s expected right away. By sharing a document like this with your team, they will be up and running in no time.
- Sample Procedures Checklist – Creating procedures and how-to instructions in checklist form make it easy for your team members to understand exactly what you need and expect them to do. Plus, it eliminates unnecessary disruptions about ‘forgetting’ a step or how to complete a task.

If you’ve read this far, you’re interested in starting your own internship program to get more help and save more money in your business. And you’re probably wondering if you can afford the complete Get FREE Business Help, and all the additional bonuses.
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when I tell you the investment. But before I do, I want you to forget about all that you’re getting with this program for just a minute and think about YOU!
How much is an intern worth to you?
If you look at the financial side of things, here’s the breakdown: the average intern works for about 12 hours a week.
If they were making just the federal minimum wage in the US ($7.25 an hour) you’d be paying out nearly $350 per month. But this program shows you how to get interns for FREE!
Speaking of time, you’re able to eliminate time spent doing these tasks. What will you be able to accomplish in those extra hours to become even more profitable? Or you could use that extra time for yourself! (I personally only work about 15 hours a week, thanks in part to interns.) How much is that all worth to you?
As I said, I think you’ll be please to know the entire Get FREE Business Help program is only $97!
Having an internship program is one of the main reasons I have a completely debt-free business. And I know it can help you reach your goals faster too! Get the Get FREE Business Help program today and see for yourself what a difference it can make to your bottom line, as well as your sanity!
