Gwenn Aspen is a speaker, the founder and CEO of Anequim, and co-host of the Bootstrappers Podcast. In 2008, Gwenn and Jeremy Aspen hired their first remote employee — a friend and past colleague from Mexico — to help with calls via VOIP phone for their property management business. The support from this first virtual assistant helped them provide better customer service, allowing them to grow faster than ever before. By 2015, they had 26 remote professionals on board and were inspired to help more businesses like theirs.
This led to the birth of Anequim in 2016. With direct experience in hiring, training, and developing remote professionals, they crafted processes and procedures for virtual assistant programs that now provide services to businesses in the US & Canada. Anequim has become one of the largest remote professional employers in Mexico with employees helping customers across various industries.
