Brian Bass and Emma talk about subcontracting!

Today I talk to Brian Bass about building your medical writing business with subcontractors.

Both Brian and I work with subcontractors in our business, and it was fascinating to talk with him, because while we have a similar business model, we approach things in quite a different way. He uses only highly experienced writers but doesn’t spend as much time on training, but possible charges more to his clients. My model on the other hand has a training component (the 6-week course—check out 6weekcourse.com). Not everyone gets selected to work as a subcontractor, and the ones that do are highly motivated and demonstrate that they will do a great job.

One thing that we both agree on is that subcontracting is not for the faint of heart and in some ways it’s more complex and you can make less money doing it. One benefit though, is you have a business that is outside of yourself to some extent, and in that sense it is a hugely valuable assets, and also a contribution

Brian Bass is a is President of Bass Global, Inc., which has been around since 1989 and does many different types of medical writing. Brian is also co-author of The Accidental Medical Writer Series of books, resources, information, and inspiration for freelance medical writers. Brian is a Past President of The American Medical Writers Association (AMWA), and has served the organization at both the national and chapter levels for 2 decades. Brian is an avid speaker and presenter. He is among the first to receive the Medical Writer Certified™ (MWC™) credential.
