How To Smash Through The First Roadblock To Online Success

One of the most common questions I’m asked during interviews is what major mistakes I made on the path to the success I enjoy online today, which if I had a chance, I would do over differently.

Usually the first or second response I offer to this question is that I would outsource much earlier than I did.

Although you can call me one of the “oldies” when it comes to making a living online, since I’ve been doing it for over ten years, the first five years were very, very slow. Part of that is because it takes time to build momentum, but not five years. Simply put, I messed around with too many different ideas and spent most of the time hand coding all aspects of my websites using a basic understanding of HTML I learned from a book and through trial and error.

This very slow development curve could have been avoided if I sought help from other people sooner, though it wasn’t a complete waste of time. Forcing myself to learn how servers work, set up websites and scripts, and control all the technical aspects of my websites meant that I understood how the world wide web worked. Even if you don’t build the machine, it helps to know how it works when it comes to operating it, though you don’t have to.

How Much Outsourcing Is Needed For Success?

This is an interesting question, which I think does not have a specific answer.

The better question is how much outsourcing is required given your unique situation? What skills and resources you currently possess, which business model you are following, where are you located, how many hours you have available for work and what mindset you possess, all form part of the answer to this question.

It’s fairly clear that for all but a few unique success stories, every online business that grosses at least a million dollars a year relies on more than just one person to operate it. Even the most hard working talented individuals need help, and if you want to grow, eventually you must bring on board more people.

Recently I’ve talked to several Australian Internet marketers, who rely upon outsourcing as their core leverage point. These particular marketers have teams of programmers, writers, customer support staff, telemarketers, and admin assistants, most of whom live in countries like India, Romania and the Philippines.

Some of these resources are put to use to do things for clients, like create websites, write content, build links for SEO purposes, do keyword research and essentially create fully functioning web presences that attract targeted traffic for a purpose. Outsourcers are also used to do all these things for the company itself, not the clients, with the focus on creating niche websites which they monetize using the usual methods of advertising, affiliate programs, pay per action/lead offers and products.

The result of this is a multi-million dollar business, which is built on outsourcing. The business model changes, but the fundamentals of finding niches, attracting targeted traffic using content and link building, and the monetization processes, do not change. It’s simply a numbers game, where once you get the formula to work, you multiply it by bringing on more and more outsourcers.

Tim Ferriss, author of the 4-Hour Workweek, is a poster child for outsourcing. He has helped the average every day person understand how leveraging other people can make their lives simpler, freeing up time to do more fun things.

Tim leveraged outsourcing not just to create a solid online income stream, he applied it to many other areas of his life. Tim demonstrates that if you think outside of the box, your entire life can be managed, everything from buying plane tickets, to ordering flowers for your significant other, to organizing your birthday party, or conducting online research about the new car you want to buy or even management of your online dating efforts. If you need it done, other people can do it for you.

If you haven’t done so already, I recommend you listen to my interview with Tim to learn more about how he lives his life.

Let’s Keep Outsourcing Simple

So where does this leave us?

It’s clear outsourcing represents a huge opportunity, but like most things, the potential is far too significant for us to implement from day one – just understanding the potential, let alone doing it – is challenge enough.

You might call me lazy, you might call me smart, and I’m probably both of these things, but when it comes to outsourcing, I’m not actually doing much of it.

But wait, if I revealed my lack of outsourcing as one of the biggest mistakes I made early on, how can I say I don’t actually use it that much now?

The main outsourcing I do use is for technology (my websites/blog) and email management. I won’t go into detail here as I’ve already explained what I outsource in previous articles (try this one to start with – How To Find A Good Customer Support Person (Or Any Outsourced Staff) ).

The main reason I don’t outsource significantly is that I use an elegant business model that’s leveraging my past work. Of course I can’t rely on the past for my future forever, so I will need to create something significant and new eventually, but for the time being I’m happy serving you with blog posts and working with my existing members.

But let’s not talk about me, let’s talk about you.

I’m going to assume, like the majority of my audience, you’re starting up an online business and struggling with all the different things you first have to understand, and then get done, in order to build momentum in your business.

You’ve been told that outsourcing is a good idea, you’re just not sure how to start. What are the most important elements to outsource first, and does it matter what business model you are following, where exactly can you find good outsourcers, and how can you know a good one from a bad one?

These are all great questions, and no doubt you have many more, but for now I want to focus on just one question and then I’ll leave you with recommendation for more help to answer the rest of the questions.

What Should You Outsource First?

I’ve asked several of my most successful peers this question and the unanimous response is…


Every single successful online marketer, even if they are technically savvy themselves, recommend you seek technical help first.

Most people are not technically savvy, and unfortunately this creates confusion. When you’re confused about what you are doing, that’s when you become scared. Fear is the worst emotion to build a business on, so the first step to eliminating this fear is to find a person who will build your online web presence for you.

The great thing about the web is that you can pretty much copy everyone else. You don’t need to know HOW a website does what it does, you just need to know what the end experience is like for the user. Since you are capable of emulating the user experience by actually interacting with other websites as a user, you can learn what you want your website to do.

Of course it’s important you are capable of creating solid specifications for a tech outsourcer to follow, but if you start small, like a basic WordPress blog installation, with a few key plug-ins, you can keep thing simple. From there you grow and expand as your understanding of how the Web works, and your relationship with your tech outsourcer develops.

Do This Next…

In order to begin outsourcing you’re going to have to answer questions like…

  • Where do you find good outsourcers?
  • How do you critique and hire outsourcers?
  • How do you create specifications for your outsourcers?
  • What type of tech person do you actually need and what skills should they have?
  • Do you need a website developer, graphic designer and programmer or can a tech person do all of these things?
  • What kind of jobs can outsourcers do for you?
  • How much should you pay?
  • Which countries are the best to hire from and why?
  • What role should you outsource after technology?
  • and so on…

Although outsourcing can make your life much easier, and it’s a mandatory requirement if you’re not good at technology if you want an online business, it can take some time to find good people.

I’ve had plenty of people come up to me telling stories of how they hired a person from overseas only to fire them shortly after because they were poor communicators, or they couldn’t actually do what they said they could, or they realized they didn’t know how to properly instruct an outsourcer to get the work done.

As you can no doubt tell, the answers to all of these questions are beyond the scope of one blog article, however I do have a recommendation for you if you are serious about your outsourcing.

Tyrone Shum is someone I’ve come to know and respect as an Internet marketer and expert at outsourcing.

I admire Tyrone because he participated in my membership site mastermind program and was one of the very few people who went out there and took action and launched a membership site around his expertise. This signifies him as someone worth associating with because he gets results.

Tyrone is practicing what I preach and giving away some of his best stuff on outsourcing as a means to introduce himself and what he does, to you.

If you want answers to the questions I listed above and you understand how important for your online business it is that you grasp outsourcing, Tyrone’s training is a good place to start.

Tyrone has a free ten-part video course, which take you through his outsourcing system, that you can claim if you are willing to build a relationship with Tyrone by giving him your name and email.

You can see what the videos cover, meet Tyrone and opt-in for the free video course on this page –

Once you watch the ten free videos, you will definitely have a much stronger understanding of what outsourcing can do for you, and how you can begin the process of hiring your first tech person.

  • Thanks for the pointers, Yaro.

    I’m a big fan of Tim Ferriss, but I’d not heard of the others. I know as a new startup, it’s difficult to even know WHAT to outsource, so I think the videos especially will be a big help.

    I appreciate it.

    -Marshall Jones Jr.

  • Great Article Yaro!

    It’s true. I know from having been a Virtual Assistant myself (and currently in the process of launching my own Virtual Assistant Company) how hard for people it is to 1: Find Great Virtual Assistants who follow through and deliver quality and 2: Having Business Owners & Entrepreneurs wanting to let go with (a) the control of the project and (b) the money.

    I have had this issue myself!

    However, I have realised that Connecting People with People/Resources is where you can truly explode your business and the personal life you want to attain. We are only one person and there is only so much we can achieve on our own.

    I guess it just will come down to trust and finding the key people to help us on our journey to success.

    • Hi Katey,

      It’s great that you are launching your own Virtual assistant company and I totally agree, finding good VAs is a skill. Once you’ve found the right ones, it’s a matter of looking after them and ensuring they are happy with the work.

      Furthermore with experience in dealing with VA companies I’ve found the reason why I have chosen one over the others is the level of customer service. The better communication and customer service they provide through reporting and contact with you, the higher chance I would hire them and also refer lots of other clients. This is what my current VA company has done for me.

      Good luck with your launch!

      • You are bang on Tyrone. I have had some miserable customer service and when I found the right one, I have stuck for now over a year and a half. A bit pricey but worth it.

      • Thanks Tyrone … we should totally skype sometime as I love what you do with Mass Outsource.

    • I am seriously looking for a virtual assistant at the moment, anyone interested?

  • One of my best decisions was to outsource guest posting, which isn’t something that most people think of doing. I had a list of probloggers that I wanted to get exposure from, so I outsourced some article writing to people… and actually hit on quite a few blogs for some easy traffic and subscribers. Great tips on outsourcing earlier rather than later, I wholeheartedly agree!

    • Nice idea Jim! That’s a good traffic technique and most people don’t have time to write enough quality posts for their own blog, let alone guest posts, so this could be a good strategy to test both outsourcing content creation and marketing.

  • Ron

    Outsourcing, when done in good or right way can really be beneficial, but when done in a wrong way, it can be disastrous. I am really including this outsourcing thing as one of my next step in online world.

  • I’m going to read the 4 hour work week as I’ve heard many good things about it. I also feel it’s good to find other people who know how to do what you’re wanting done and allowing them to do the work so it saves everyone time but I agree it is probably not easy at first or after a while until you really have a feel for how things are.

    Ultimately it comes down to as they always say, what you know AND who you know. I believe that was the title of one the blog posts James from did.

    Good post here. It explains well why you want to outsource just a bit and have the technical side handled. I also like how you’ve let be known that once you’re making a lot of money you’re going to obviously be needing some help so it’s not entirely a one man show.

    • Have a listen to my interview with Tim if you want the one hour summary of his book. It’s definitely one of my better podcasts, Tim didn’t hold back.

  • Great post, Yaro. I have to agree – I’ve been full-time online for the past 13 years – and I could have achieved Online Success so much faster had I outsourced (but as you know, there weren’t a lot of possibilities then – LOL). Instead, I have a lot more technical expertise than what I use now. Now I DO outsource a lot of the business – and have a lot more free time!

  • Outsourcing is essential. Unless you outsource then your business is a self-employed job. And what happens if you’re ill or don’t feel like working anymore? Your business probably won’t be able to work without you. My long-term goal is for all of my businesses to be able to work without me – and a lot of this will be achieved by setting up systems, and getting outsourcers to follow and further improve those systems.

    • Hi David,

      Great point to note. I recently did an interview with a subscriber on my list who came across my Twitter and she did a case study of her business with me. She currently has 3 full time VAs who has been doing a great job for her and just last week she fell sick. Luckily her business kept running and everything still got done without her. This was an AMAZING point she commented on as well.

  • This is a good jump start stories since the beginning is the hardest phase in online marketing

  • A little help from other people isn’t bad at all. You really don’t have to slow up the process just because you need to learn it out before doing it. When I was new to blogging, I asked someone to set up my WordPress blog. If I’m not gonna do it, I’ll delay the process and I might end up looking for other things to work with. I tend to lose my interest when things aren’t done fast, so outsourcing is the best option to get the job done.


  • I started outsourcing small parts of my business about 2 years ago and never looked back. One of the best decisions I made.

    Tyrone’s vids are great – definitely worth a look.


  • Honestly, i havent done much outsourcing. But, i can see the importance of it. Usually, most people who wants to start a business are left with minimum cash in hand in the beginning so it is difficult for many to outsource. However, i believe that outsourcings can help you grow faster.. thanks for the post Yaro..

    • Outsourcing and leveraging your business at the beginning is a smart option and in my opinion is an investment.

      It will accelerate your growth at a much faster rate and also get things done.

      If you’re just starting out your business, I’d highly recommend just hiring someone from the Philippines to get work done to allow you to focus on the dollar productive activities.

  • I outsource my development work as well. I have in the past tried to nut-it-out and I do get there eventually, but development work is not really my strength and not “my real passion”. However, I’m still glad I still tackled it, so I understand what is involved, but outsourcing allows me to focus on my strengths which are “entrepreneurialism” and “creativity”. Best decision I ever made…no my tearing my hair out with code.

    Incidentally since doing this, it has actually freed up more time for me to actually learn about coding more in-depth, so I have actually improved my skill in coding. So it’s really a win-win situation.

  • Your Message – I wrote to you over a year ago for a recommendation for someone to help me set up my Word Press blog and you told me about He has exceeded my expectations and has been a tremendous help to me. He is so patient and very affordable. With his expertise, I was able to start blogging right away and in the process, I have learned how the pieces fit.
    My next outsourcing project is to teach my college age daughter how to blog this summer and have her help me with link building and article writing. Thanks Yaro! Lori at More With Less Today

  • Hi Yaro,

    For me, it’s vetting the VAs etc is the problem. This takes so much time and finding a reliable resource often takes more effort than doing it myself.

    Some of the ‘references’ I received were faked when I checked into them, which doesn’t help things.

    I see the RentaCoder has an affiliate program. Have you had any experience or
    feedback for this?

    Or anyone else here on this blog. Hi Folks!


    • Hi Ivan,

      I’ve tried rentacoder, and I was totally overwhelmed with learning how to use their website to find people, so I just gave up.

      Have you tried searching for people on Odesk? I specify for people from the Philippines and I’ve had a high success rate from there. There’s a video in my free e-course that shows you step by step on how I do that. Maybe take a look at that?

  • I realized how important the outsourcing was a few years ago. I was short of cash that’s why I did everything myself. It was so hard to do online business from the scratch where you had to build website and marketed them, which I had no idea about at first. Lucky we have blog now which makes job so much easier. I am hiring some people to do the content creation and web designing.
    Thank you Yaro for your wonderful article.

  • Yaro, it seems you and I think similarly and have made similar “mistakes”. I am a total control freek, meaning that I want to know and do everything myself. In the past, I immersed myself in Linux, as a way to get to know the operating system, until I realized that ALOT of time was slipping away as I reeled under impractical workloads, and study/mastery schedules.

    I will probably never outsource though, as I am not trying to grow a million dollar business, just a smaller sustainable income, besides the fact that what I’m doing probably isn’t applicable to a big business model. Still, I need some web design work, which I can’t stand doing…

  • Dan

    Thanks for the idea Yaro. I’m going to sign up for the Mass Outsource affiliate program as well.

  • Great post Yaro. Currently I do not outsource any of my work. I will do that once my business has reach certain level.

  • Nicely timed Yaro!

    I outsourced a little last year and was glad when my transciptionist agreed to join me as I prepared to launch my membership program that you know is long over due.

    Like many others, the challenge I’ve had is locating the right, trustworthy people. At the moment I am seeking people for a test run to select who I bring into my team in the fall.

    I’ve also got some new ideas I want to try…will see you in the forums again as I get closer.

    Thanks as always for your help!

  • I couldn’t have said it better! Sometimes it’s just better to hire people who are experts at certain things to complete the task for you because you’ll be saving yourself a lot of time. That’s all a part of being a more efficient person.

  • Great food for thought Yaro!

    I’ve found a simple way to get started with outsourcing is to hire someone local at first. They are easier to vet and it’s not as scary as outsourcing overseas.

    Then, when you’ve gained some confidence and are comfortable with the idea you can look to other countries.

    • Hi Chris,

      I tried that option in the beginning and it became really costly. When I found people from the Philippines, it cut my costs down by at least 75% and I was blown away by the high quality of work they did. They’re also very loyal and have the skill sets that you would find in most Western countries.

  • Another great post Yaro. I would definitely have to agree that outsourcing is often the key to expanding & growing your own business. I have been spinning my wheels trying to do everything myself for years. Now I am gradually learning the many benefits of outsourcing. Now only does it free up a lot of time, but it also allows you to ensure that every task gets done as competently as necessary.

  • Outsourcing is a very smart thing to do . And coming from you that confirms it even more so. I would love to outsource especially for building SEO links. After reading this article, one of the first things I’ll consider doing is outsourcing. Great article Yaro, thanks for sharing!!

    • Hey Jarrod,

      Great to see you here! I know there are plenty of people from the Philippines with SEO experience and this is something I recommend getting outsourced as soon as you can. Link building and article content creation is also part of this process as well, so you should look for people with these skills.

  • I’m already on Tyrone’s list and am just waiting for the doors to open.

    • Hi Blaine,

      Thanks mate. Doors open on April 20th at 10am US EST.

      See you there!

  • I think the main reason why most people don’t want to outsource work is that they wish to do everything on their own and that the person they would hire may not do a good job. But it really depends on how kean you are in finding a good technology assistant. A good way is to get to know the person first through online communication.

  • This article comes at a great time – and I will be going to watch the videos ASAP.

    My problem that I am facing right now, I think (even more than the cost issue), is trusting someone else to do things the way I want. I guess I am what you might call a control freak, and have a hard time delegating things to other people for fear they won’t do the work properly.

    And the thought of having to train someone, really makes me tired! Is it possible to find people who already know all the tasks like link building (they already know how to use anchor text, what sites to submit to, etc), social bookmarking – maybe even have a system in place that they could use to do my outsourced work?

    That I guess is what is holding me back from outsourcing – I have outsourced
    article writing before, and ended up not even using half the articles, and the others I had to do some modifying to get them to the standard I wanted.

    I look forward to the videos – hopefully it will give me that final push I know I need!

    • Hi Marie,

      Great question! There are people who you can outsource to who has the skills to do link building and social bookmarking already and this would save you ample time to train them. Though, it does take time to find them and they will cost a little more.

      If you don’t want to train them, keep an eye out for the Mass Outsource Mastermind course which I will be opening the doors to next week on April 20th, where inside I have lots of training videos which you can give straight to your outsourcer or virtual staff.

      Here’s just some of the training videos I have included inside my program:
      – How to generate traffic from social media (and social bookmarking)
      – How to build a link network to generate LOTS of traffic
      – How to do article marketing
      – and much more…

      If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a question at:

      Enjoy the videos.

  • What to outsource and when to outsource is a difficult question. Everyone has different blog and different situation. Some needs article outsouce, while some need to outsource the marketing and social networking.

  • When I was in real estate, one of the very few trainers that I actually got value from was a guy named Brian Buffini. One element that was a core of his training program for Realtors was that you had to “McDonaldize your business.” In other words, have a system for everything, document it and then have support for every single thing it wasn’t necessary for you to do. In the case of real estate agents, that is signing listings and writing sales contracts.

    When I started my own business, I followed that same principle. What I’ve found to work is to write the documentation, set it aside, and then go through it a couple of times yourself using your instructions exactly. Does the flow actually work? Then have a friend go through it. If they can follow the instructions, you have a system that you can train on.

    Keep a binder of your collection of processes. If you died or were incapacitated tomorrow, would someone be able to step in and keep your business running.

    • Hi Carla,

      You are spot on! I totally agree with you and it’s very important to create good documentation along the way. To compliment the documentation, I might add to also create videos to “show” the how-tos of the work. There’s a great piece of software called Screen Toaster – that allows you to capture your screen on a video then store it online.

      I’ve found it’s conveyed what needs to be done much clearer to my team of virtual staff.

  • Phillipines is the place to go, besides being able to leverage the low cost of living, they also have an affinity for western culture. I personally outsource link building for a few sites within my SEM co to this region of the world. I also outsource book keeping, but I use a person here in the US for that.

    I agree technology is the first thing to outsource. Its like driving a car, you need to understand how it works, but you dont have to be a mechanic. Understand it, then outsource it. Also, when you start to make money online outsource accounting and book keeping. I ran into some nasty problems in regards to taxes and accounting the first year I became profitable. Cheers, -David

    • I agree about outsourcing accounting & taxes. It can become quite a headache to try to do that yourself. In the end you may have to pay more money if you do it yourself.

      I find the best things to outsource are the tasks that you don’t enjoy doing or are not competent in doing well. That keeps you happy and ensures quality work.

  • Outsourcing is definitely the way to go. I was initially skeptical about it a while ago, but after reading up on a lot of articles as well as reassurance from partners and friends, I was convinced of its positives.

    Till then,


  • In my case, it’s the technology, SEO, and design side I’m good at and enjoy doing. The people side (social media, editing, and customer service) is what I get overwhelmed with and seems to eat up a disproportionate amount of my time. So for me the challenge is finding someone with a “similar voice” to mine to be the public side of my projects, and I find that is quite difficult.

    I haven’t leveraged outsourcing enough to have a good balance yet, but I believe wholeheartedly in systematization. I heard a great acronym for “SYSTEM” a few days ago:


    Yaro – thanks as always for your in depth and insightful guidance.

  • There is a message here that has not come through clearly. There is a good business opportunity to be the Out Source too.

  • Outsourcing is something I’m currently struggling with – should I or shouldn’t I ??? While working on a large semi-technical project yesterday, I seriously considered hiring someone to do it for me. What held me back was the concern of “teaching” someone exactly what I wanted and not getting the results I was seeking. I suppose this has a lot to do with my being a perfectionist and wanting to take complete control.

    Reading through your many posts, Yaro, I am starting to see that I need to give up a bit of my hands-on roles, outsource, and be the successful business woman I desire.

    • Instead of outsourcing your entire large project, you could instead outsource specific parts of it. Or maybe there are other regular tasks that you do that are eating up your time. Outsourcing isn’t usually about getting someone to do everything for you, it is more about getting help in areas where you are lacking time or expertise.

  • I can’t stress how much outsourcing has helped me ! Odesk ftw! Seriously. $3.33 an hour for data entry?!! madness.

  • Outsourcing is just one of the entrepreneurial struggles that people are faced with when starting out. It’s a very big wall to climb, because most people are faced with either paying someone or doing the work for free.

    The problem is that most “green” entrepreneurs do not give value to their time. You have to pay for the work either way, with your money or your time. Many times if you do something yourself it can be more “expensive” than if you paid someone else to do it, because you are not working on building your business when you are sitting around tweaking your blog for the 4th time in a day.

    Outsource early, like Yaro says. It will change the way your business runs for the better.

  • Hi Yaro!

    One of the reasons I come back to your blog is you live what you teach: you deliver quality content. Thanks so much for that.

    I would like to add a tip to those who might be afraid to pay for unknowns, and that is to do a bit of web search for free tools as there are so many available now. For me, it gets me a bit familiar with the unknown, as well as letting me see what features I like/dislike before making a monetary commitment.

  • I hear you on the outsourcing. I paid the extra money to send out a press release and wow. Backlinks like crazy. It’s really a time saver. I don’t mind doing the writing myself but distribution can be done by someone else. Sometimes its a good idea to pay for the expertise.

  • this is the hardest burden to everyone success but after passing this block you can see now the brighter future for your career

  • Great Post. One of my biggest issues has always been having too many options available, instead of just focusing on a few things. It’s been difficult, but I think I am finally staying attentive and getting it done the way it should be!

  • Work 10 hours a week! Seriously? I got my free copy and I’m impressed but I am pretty sure working 10 hours won’t be enough

  • I have been trying internet marketing for 2 years now and am seriously frustrated. I have tried PPC, Blogs, and Affiliate Marketing. I just need to know is there anyone having any success online?

  • I’ve been thinking about this post and outsourcing for a few days now, and I’m starting to identify tasks which I may need to outsource. I think it’s also important to get to know the person at least through the phone or through Skype. We can have a better idea of what he or she can do, although we won’t meet that person face to face.

  • Outsourcing is definitely one of the best way to grow a business but I think that it is pretty hard for people who just started out due to shoe string budget that they have.

    I started out doing everything myself until I manage to make some money from the site and then start to outsource some simple but tedious stuff to others. Indeed it has contributed a lot to my business growth as I can concentrate on more important stuff.

  • Hi Yaro,
    I spoke to Tyrone Shum about who to hire for my first foray into outsourcing. He connected me with someone immediately.

    The work that I sent was done well. Where I’m still struggling or sorting out, really, is what kind of work to send. I’d like it to be what I call “production” work – tasks that don’t require a lot of decision making and that need to be done each week.

    I run a blog carnival which is quite a bit of work to put together. At first I thought I’d give that work to my new VA, but I realized that I wanted to read the posts and decide which ones to keep or toss, etc.

    I’m in the process of starting a new site that will lead to a membership site so I need to figure out what work I’ll assign to my new team.

    I need to listen to Tyrone’s videos too.

    Outsourcing is another process to learn how to do well.

  • I’m still sitting on the fence about outsourcing. A lot of people told me to outsource my work , but somehow, I can’t trust people easily so I don’t like outsourcing.

    • Believe me, once you start to outsource, your vision will change. Start by outsourcing one task at a time. If you are driving traffic, you can outsource your article marketing for example.

      What I do is outsourcing two or three people at the same time, and I keep the best one.


  • I definitely became soooo much more productive the second that I started outsourcing tasks! Like you, I wish I’d only trusted myself to do it sooner.

    My recommendation for outsourcing, make a list of all of your daily tasks. Hi-light the one’s you don’t want to do and that you trust yourself delegating to someone else. Then go about finding the right person for the job.

  • I like the word “savvy” you use in your article. It is the all-important aspect to remember before you take any business steps.

  • Some great tips in this article. Really enjoyed it.

  • Fear is the worst emotion to build a business upon… boy you said it
