How will I know if a role is a good fit?
If you apply for an Operator role you are indicating an interest to learn more. Depending on the site owner, this will be through an email or call with more information.
Once you start a new role, we recommend a trial period for everyone. Often you know pretty quickly what the site owner will be like to work with, based on the results of this trial period.
Why don't I just start or buy my own business?
This is definitely a great option for some people.
But everyone has different skills and experience.
If you love business and improving them then you get to just focus on that.
You don't have to hustle for 1-3 years to get an idea off the ground or work out how to raise financing and diligence a business.
Get an email with opportunities sent to you, jump on a call with the site owner.
And you could be running their site with an equity or profit share upside in less than a week.
Am I locked in forever to be an Operator?
This is a good question to address right at the start as it varies a lot between site owners.
Some site owners may have certain profit goals to hit so that they can hit a certain multiple in 2-3 years.
Or instead of exiting, the owner may plan more of a long term hold strategy.
Check with the site owner first to check that both your visions line up.
Once you share the same vision, you can split equity or profit share to keep everyone incentivised to achieve that vision.
Isn't a corporate salary role safer?
Definitely. If you are optimising for safety a salary role would suit you best.
If you want more access to upside and believe in your abilities.
Then a equity or profit share can be a great alternative to capture that upside.
