White Label HR to Serve Market of Start-Up, Early Stage, and Lifestyle PEOs: Earlier this year, we had a soft launch for our sister company White Label HR, Inc (WLHR) to satisfy a growing market need in the PEO industry for outsourced back office services for start-up, early stage, and lifestyle PEOs. In our 15 year history we have consulted to well over 100+ PEOs, and we have also launched and assisted nearly 30 other start-up and early stage PEOs in their birth or infancy.

Historically, it was primarily in a consulting role in which we assisted these start-ups and early stage PEOs with their strategy, their business plan, their business model and building the technology platform along with their product and services offerings.

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

I attribute my odd fascination with all things employment to my years in PEO. I find myself scanning articles about macro employment trends, geographic statistics, healthcare studies, seniors, new grads, whatever. So a recent book review, titled NomadLand: Surviving America in the Twenty First Century by Jessica Bruder, not surprisingly caught my attention.

At first I thought it was a modern Jack Kerouac type novel detailing a new real life counter culture taking to the great American Road Trip. Instead, author Bruder focused attention on what is an emerging labor pool largely based around aging seniors who have for various reasons, mostly economic, taken to the road, to work in various seasonal job throughout the US. These Seniors have released themselves from one of the largest expenses for Americans, traditional brick and mortar dwellings, mortgages, rent, property taxes, etc. and are now living in everything from RVs, to campers, to redesigned SUVs.

We are so honored at the opportunity to interview the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of STAR PEO out of Laredo, Texas. A true gentleman, that has carved a space out for a unique local service provider to an area that knows PEO well, but lacked a local presence.

Mr. Nguyen’s story is one of inspiration and the realization of the American dream. An immigrant from his home country of Vietnam, Nguyen came to this country with his mother after the fall of Saigon.

Many entrepreneurs have spent a lifetime of building, toiling, and sacrificing to get to this very moment...the transaction event.

Since football season is upon us, I hope that you do not mind if I sprinkle some sports analogies into this conversation.

For those of you that are approaching this part of the PEO lifecycle, you have likely built a business with your sheer determination, perseverance and a quality team around you that has shared your mission and vision. But now that you are considering a transaction, you should consider this the “red zone”. There is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be completed before you should enter the red zone. This part of your planning process, if done well, you will increase the multiple and your “pay day” to cap off a storied career.

Life Hacks From Tina Vigoa

When I was about 15 years old, I was headed to summer camp in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. It was Camp Windy Gap, for those of you who are familiar with Young Life. Anyway, I was excited and anxious, but my parents decided to compound the issue, by scheduling a quick white water rafting jaunt on our way. For most, this may seem like a great idea, but as a child, I was not necessarily adventurous, so this was not a welcome excursion.

We rode the bus up the mountain, you know the kind of bus I am talking about, and the whole way, I sat in the back, repeating, “I am going to fall out, I know I will fall out.” I was relieved to be in the same raft with the group leader and tour guide, but was still pretty sure I was going to fall out, despite their reassurance that people rarely fall out. I was told, if you do, immediately grab the rope and you will be pulled to safety. I am sure you know where this is going....
