Category Archives: Outsourcing
So I guess it’s time to reveal a little secret to you. And judging from my title, you know what topic I’m about to discuss. The minute I started outsourcing my work, my entire business…and LIFE changed!
How It All Started…
This whole outsourcing IDEA came to me after I read a book called, “4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferris. Ever since I picked up this book, it has become my bible for designing my lifestyle. The ideas and methodologies covered in this book led me to take action to create my own army of outsourced staff that would free up my time, allow me to focus on the things that REALLY put money in my pockets, and relieve myself of work that took up the majority of my schedule.
Thanks to outsourcing, I’ve had the freedom to disappear for weeks to travel without EVER looking at my emails or marketing stats. I’ve been able to do the things I love like taking martial arts classes 2-4 hours a day ( I moved up 4 levels in way less time an average student takes because I had more time to spend on it…now I’m a trained instructor!).
As my business grows, so does my personal workforce! As my workforce grows…the closer I get to outsourcing my entire business!
What Does This Information Have Anything To Do With You?…
That’s up to you!
At this moment, think of the things you do everyday that take up most of your time. Now think of how many of those things can be done by someone else.
Now imagine all the things you COULD be doing if you could relieve yourself of all the tedious and meticulous marketing tasks, organizing, planning, followups, etc. and hand it over to someone else to do FOR you.
“Does Outsourcing Cost An Arm And A Leg?…”
This is really what holds a lot of business owners back from taking the initial steps to outsourcing. I think the real question you need to ask yourself is, “how much do you value your time?”
For as little as $200 per month, you can have a full time employee working 20-40 hours per week ! No joke!
Most of the people I’ve found so far are more educated than ME! I dropped out of college while these people have degrees, sometimes 2! So if you’re worried that they won’t be able to complete the tasks you assign, you’re sorely mistaken.
“Where Can I Find Great Outsourced Employees?…”
In my opinion, this is probably the toughest part of outsourcing. Most people just don’t know where to look, or HOW to secure someone who’s trustworthy, dependable, and won’t just run off with your money. Finding reliable people is really not that difficult if you know where to look.
Here’s a Great Resource I found (complete with video tutorials) that you can use to start learning about how YOU can start outsourcing your business.
My Advice To You…
If you’re at the point in your business where it’s starting to get overwhelming, or you’re suddenly finding yourself in a position that prevents you from doing the things you want to do and living the life you WANT to live… then it might be time to LET GO of those things, hand them over to someone qualified (if not MORE qualified than you), spend a few extra hundred bucks, and DO the things you WANT to DO.
The money you spend on outsourcing won’t come close to the TIME you could save or the increase in profits you could experience!
