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. The good news is I’ve started a few businesses and had some great successes.
I’m not even kidding when I tell you this but almost every day someone asks me about outsourcing. Why? How? When? I get asked so often that I figured I should make a course to impart my knowledge. So here it is: the Outsourcing 101 Course Podcast. I hope you not only enjoy the Outsourcing 101 Course Podcast but that you get lots of useful information. Don’t forget, there’s a free Outsourcing 101 Video Course too.
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.
In this, the Free Outsourcing 101 Course, we’ll be referring to outsourcing as the process of having someone else do a job that you can’t – and that person could be down the street or on the other side of the world.
