I’d like to quickly point out something that a lot of people don’t seem to realize. Stop for a moment and try to think of a SINGLE successful business where the work is all done by one guy (or gal). Can you think of any? Certainly not a large corporation like Home Depot. Certainly not a large retail store. Heck, even the local corner store needs one or two employees to cover all of the operating hours.
I read a lot of threads on outsourcing at the Warrior Forum, or other places, and there are a LOT of people who are afraid to hire someone to help them grow their business.
Listen up – there are two types of people. There are those that do the work, and there are those that have work done for them. Having work done for you doesn’t mean you are free from performing work – but your work is now more valuable. You are working ON your business rather than IN your business. Get this through your head quickly because if you sit around living in fear that you cant’ trust an outsourced employee, you’ll never get anywhere. Every business deals with trust issues, and yours is no different. Every successful business solves those issues.
When you are forming a bricks and mortar business, you generally hire employees. When you have an online business, you can also have employees but we call them outsourcers. They are freelancers who work for you full time, and they generally live in another country. It’s the same thing
So back to my main point – if you want to grow your business to achieve the success that you wnat, then you absolutely HAVE to get it through your head that outsourcing is not a choice. It’s a must. That’s why John Jonas put together ReplaceMyself, and that’s why I put together my bonus package for replace myself.
