Ever wondered how two 14-year-olds mowing a school lawn relate to outsourcing in business?

Ah, the summer of 1990. The sun, the mischievous plans, and the unforgettable day when my buddy and I were hired by our school principal to take care of the lawn led to unexpected lessons about the world of outsourcing. Today, I'm diving deep into those memories, drawing parallels with today's business world, and letting you in on a little secret – how to easily outsource your tasks.

Show Summary:

The narrative revolves around the complexities and potential pitfalls of outsourcing tasks, specifically to Virtual Assistants (VAs). The speaker recalls personal anecdotes from their youth, which underscore the importance of clear instructions and expectations.

The essence of the message is that while outsourcing can offer significant benefits in terms of time and cost savings, the process needs to be approached with care and attention to detail. Here are the key points:

Takeaways:


The Importance of Clear Instructions:
Many individuals attempt to hire VAs but face challenges when the relationship doesn't work out. The speaker emphasizes the significance of providing clear instructions to VAs, similar to how one would treat an in-house employee. The absence of clear guidelines often leads to dissatisfaction and perceived underperformance.

  • Outsourcing is not just about delegating; it's about providing clear directions and setting expectations.
  • Embrace the "Charles math": If someone can do a task 80% as well as you, for 20% of your rate, then it's 100% a task you shouldn't be doing.
  • Leveraging the power of tools, from StreamYard to Descript, can make the outsourcing process smoother, especially with the right SOPs in place.
  • It's essential to find the right balance between trusting your outsourced help and overseeing their work.
  • Outsource not just to free up time, but to free up mental space, allowing for creativity and strategic thinking.
