Laura Roeder on Managing a $4M ARR Remote Business

L

Today, I’m talking with Laura Roeder, the Founder and CEO of MeetEdgar, a social media automation solution that helps over 7,000 customers catalog and schedule their social posts and updates.

Since their launch in June 2014, their team has grown from 2 to nearly 30 people today, and are doing more than $300,000 in monthly recurring revenue — bootstrapped the entire way.

In our chat, we’re going to dive into how Laura has achieved this amazing growth with a completely remote workforce, everything from how she structures her team to her management philosophy.

Regardless of the size of your business today, if you’re committed to growing with a remote team, then this is the episode for you.
