Outsourcing: It's Not Just For Companies Anymore

Aug 18, 2007
Companies have long been utilizing their money to gain more time. Companies outsource activities that are not their forte or focus, in order to spend time and concentrate on doing what they have the most expertise in. It's time for you to jump on the outsourcing bandwagon; it's not just for companies anymore. You can now stop wishing and instead start living the vision of spending your time on what you love. When you work you trade your time for money. Through outsourcing you can utilize your money to gain more time, and spend that time however you see fit.

It's time for you to live the life of your dreams through the power that is outsourcing. By putting an actual dollar amount on your own time, you will see that to make use of that time, in order to not waste a single moment (or dollar), you need to find a new way to complete the menial and mundane tasks that you do on a regular basis. A way that ensures the tasks are completed, but with minimal interruption to your own day.

The way to do that? Outsource tasks. Just like companies all over America, start outsourcing your work to somebody who has more time, more expertise, or even more ability to do what you would have done yourself, but at a lower expense.

What is your time worth? That's what you need to be asking yourself. If you were able to completely forget the petty tasks of your life, and focus solely on what you choose to focus on, what would that be worth to you? If you can set yourself an actual dollar figure, you are one step closer to freeing yourself.

As a company, finding someone to outsource to is a simple process. As an individual, it may be a little more bewildering. But there are many avenues available to you. The internet is the best place to start - search freelance websites and the like, and you're sure to discover that the way to finding your outsourcee is a lot more straightforward than you ever thought.

There are a few cautions to outsourcing as it can be difficult choosing a person who you can implicitly trust. You will also need to be strict upon yourself and learn to assign the jobs efficiently. But, once you've developed an ongoing relationship with your virtual assistant, you will be able to maximize your time and completely free yourself.

The type of jobs you give to your virtual assistant is limited only by your imagination, your assistant's aptitudes, and the types of work that can be achieved from a remote location. You could't have your assistant host a birthday party, but they could book the location, organize entertainment, hire catering staff, and send the invitations. Basically, you can outsource anything that doesn't require someone's physical presence, buying you the most precious of resources, time.

So, just like companies who have discovered the value of outsourcing, individuals are now beginning to see the benefits in outsourcing parts of their work. It's not just for companies. It's time for you to stop fantasizing about what you wish you had time to do. Instead, start outsourcing, stop wishing, and get on with living the life that you want!
