What is Office Hours?

Office Hours is a ZOOM meeting held by the Coaching Team for Business Owners to come ask questions or get new ideas for their business.

Common topics that may come up are, how to effectively promote your business and even tips from other business owners.

Who are the Dumpling Coaches?

The Dumpling Coaches are business owners like yourself! Sarah & Ashley not only have experience within the Gig economy, they also run their own businesses on the Dumpling apps. They have helped over 1,000 business owners and are here to help you grow your business and share what they have learned.

Are there any questions that won’t be covered during Office Hours?

We strive to focus on topics and questions that are relevant to the majority of meeting attendees. If you are wanting specific details on pricing your services or how to best market within your area, those questions are best answered one on one with the Coaching team.

If you have App/Order concerns or account specific questions (such as earnings), our Support team will be able to best help you.

You can reach the Coaching or Support teams through the Message Center in your Boss app.

Helpful Tax Tips

In order to ensure that office hours is a productive and helpful meeting to all who attend, please respect the following guidelines:

  • This is meant to be a welcoming space for everyone, be kind and courteous.

  • Please raise your hand to ask a question using the “Raise Hand” feature and wait to be asked to unmute.

    • Be aware of background noise when you are unmuted.

    • Be somewhere stationary and not driving when unmuting, otherwise there can be signal interruptions and the coaches may be unable to hear your question.

  • Respect the Coaches and their right to moderate the conversation within the dedicated amount of time and move things along when needed.

  • Please ensure that your zoom account name and email match your Dumpling account. We will not admit zoom users whose names we do not recognize.

  • Out of respect for all participants, please refrain from screenshotting or recording during the meeting. You can reach out to the Coaches after if you’d like to go back over something that was discussed.

Things to Note:

  • Zoom works better on a computer but can be done on a phone as well.

  • Video is encouraged but not required

  • You may need to wait in the waiting room for a couple of minutes before being let into the meeting - don’t be alarmed if this happens! We will get you in as soon as we can!

  • You're free to drop in anytime during scheduled Office Hours and drop off whenever you’d like as well.
