Description

The main Goal of the course is to save you lots of time and money
by letting someone else do your tasks, only better / cheaper / faster then you.

I developed this course in order to share and spread the new way of
getting your things done.

It’s a summary of my years of experience with hiring people from different countries in the world based on internet platforms to accomplish tasks that I needed to do.

Those tasks where for me as an individual and as company owner (business)
for example , Over the years i used outsourcing:

As individual:
  • design a digital photo album of my family as a present to my wife.
  • I got a math teacher 1:1 for my boy
  • I learned a little french
As a business:
  • Freelancers wrote articles for my company
  • I got a designer to design my logo
  • A freelancer developed my wordpress website.
  • I outsourced a large application for a customer of mine

At this course you will get a full 360 degrees overview of handling the process of hiring a freelancer with success.

Structure:
The course is separated to 3 sections :

  1. Overview
    a. The reasons to hire freelancers
    b. The situations in life you can use the platforms
    c. My 7 ground rules for using freelancers
    .
  2. The Platforms on the web
    a. large : upwork, elance, freelancer, guru, fiverr
    b. niche: onlinejobs ph, iwiter..
  3. Real walk through - hands on case studies.
    a. scenario 1 - Upwork : design a powerpoint presentation for the course
    b. scenario 2 - Fiverr : write a promo to the course
    c. My my 9 guide lines for handling the search and complete the task successfully

Do you ask yourself these questions
  • Why continue doing tasks I don’t like to do?
  • Why do I pay so much for something I can outsource for half the price?
  • Why do it myself if I have better things to do?
  • Why do it if someone else can do it better than me?

If you do - this course is for you

1. Where to hire (with walk throughs)
2. When is a good idea to hire.
3. How to define the job on the platforms
4. How to let the freelancer get to you
5. How to pick one from so many (which filters to use)
5. Getting your failures to minimum (everybody fail at some point)
maintain a WIN-WIN with the freelancer , because everybody should be happy at the end.
6. Pay your freelancer
7. getting your things done.

The course will open a new world of opportunities for you.
It is designed to help even a beginner with basic computer skills to communicate and hire a freelancer to accomplish tasks.

MBA in the field of IT, Master of ETL

My name is Steinberg itamar,

I am in the field of information technology is for more than 15 years now,
I have a Master's degree (MBA) in information technology is an management.
My BA is also in the area of information technology from the University of Manchester.

During those years I was serving as manager and information technology expert
especially in the field of business intelligence and data integration.
all that time i used Pentaho kettle as the leading Data integration tool.

I started as a developer through team manager of development, head of the application department - responsible for all software, business processes and implementations,
also as project manager, my last role as an employee I was the CIO of the large company.

I was dealing with ERP, CRM business intelligence of course from all aspects of running a business. sales, transportation, customer service, imports, inventory, suppliers and manufacturing.

All of these areas gave me a unique perspective on business processes and how to analyze a company by looking at one large picture – that is the BI.
Of course that in order to combine all of those systems together you'll need data integration.

I have more than eight years working with pentaho kettle.
Six years ago I decided to start my own company - inflow systems and focus myself to business intelligence and data integration.
On those six years I, as CEO, was leading large business intelligence projects.
I hired several employees, very gifted, specific oriented to data integration and business intelligence. We have developed tens of projects from scratch at large companies like Alcatel Lucent (embedded solution), online gaming, binary options (stock market) and traditional businesses like food supplementary and organic food.

Today, I want to give from my knowledge to you because I believe that to share is the right way to go, during my learning phase I was reading a lot of books, struggling with the technology and I think I can make your life easier.
