It's sad to say, I'm just addicted to helping people - there I said it.

This course will share with you all of things I have learned in almost 20 years of outsourcing technical & marketing projects all over the world. I didn't learn this in my dorm room, in a class, or anywhere except the real world. I paid with real money, made lots of mistakes and also have had TONS of success with this approach.

If you want to learn on how to tap a resource pool you never know existed or more importantly, how do I actually find and work with them - THIS Class is for YOU!

In my real "job" (if you call it that) I work directly with clients on ways to grow their business.... so rather than figure out HOW to get things done I learned to focus on the WHAT and WHY. I do, however use these platforms and these approaches all the time for my clients. It's been a great way to help my clients grow without the headaches associated with employees.

I literally fell into this solution well before any small business had these resources available and I decided to put together this course so you can learn all the great places I have found to get this stuff done.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own any company that provides this type of service so please don't think this is a sales job to get you to my 'guys' somewhere in the world.

I've done everything from large scale software application development to a simple logo or intro video (some for as little as $5!) so please spend the for me to teach you how to do it.

P.S. I'm just like all the Entrepreneurs in the world trying to get a million things done, simultaneous with everything I need to keep my business running. Oh without spending a fortune doing it.

P.P.S - We will provide continual support for this 10 lecture series and will keep adding bonus content, great places to find cool resources or other ideas I come across on how to grow your business.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for those who are interested in learning about outsourcing but do not know where to start and how to look into it.
  • Be willing to spend the time to develop your thoughts and ideas
  • Learn to use new tools and processes to help your business grow.
  • If you believe in mind-reading and luck, this really won't help you!
