About Big Nelly

What the dang is a Big Nelly? Here’s how the story went down:

Amanda: “James, can you help me with my outsourcing?”

Me: “Sure, Amanda, what’s the problem?”

Amanda: “Well I had a poke around on the internet and gave outsourcing a shot, but I just felt like a big Nelly with no idea.”

Me: “HAHAHA. We’d better fix that then.”

And that’s how Big Nelly got its name. The one big goal of Big Nelly is to help people better understand outsourcing and to maximise all the potential this revolution offers.

But first… If you mention the word outsourcing to someone their first reaction is probably shipping jobs off to Philippines or India. Right up front I’m going to tell you this doesn’t have to be the case.

But first, who am I and why should you listen to me? My name is James Mackay and I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. I’ve been outsourcing all sorts of jobs for about 7 years. Over that time I’ve learnt all sorts of lessons. I’m not even kidding when I tell you this but almost every day someone asks me about outsourcing. Why do it? How do I start? When is a good time? So, let’s talk about what outsourcing is.

If you have a man come to clean your house, you’re outsourcing. A lady mows your lawn? Outsourcing.

If you sign up to that you’ll receive an email a day for 2 weeks which will run you through everything. There’s no catch or obligation. If you can’t get enough and you want to get more involved you can step up to Outsourcing All Stars which is the bees’ knees. It’s the world’s largest and greatest resource for outsourcers. Check it out.

Thanks for stopping by Big Nelly. I’d love to hear from you; tell me about your project and your successes! Maybe we can do a podcast together? Just drop me a line, whatever it is. Keep on!
