Key Points

  • [1:10] Mark is an accountant but he hasn’t done any accounting in about 2 and a half years.
  • [1:40] Mark decided to outsource his company to Philippine workers.
  • [2:30] Mark and his wife Cherry now help other companies do the same thing. 
  • [6:30] Why do companies outsource?
  • [7:00] Companies are finding it hard to find talent.
  • [7:45] Cherry talks about what she does for the business.
  • [8:50] Their business is greatly growing!
  • [9:25] What can people even outsource in the first place?
  • [11:40] Make sure your outsourced team is documenting what they’re doing, so that you can use their work as training materials in the future.
  • [17:25] Vicky recommends all her inner-circle members document every single second of their day so they can see where they waste their time. Facebook is a huge time suck!
  • [18:05] Most of what you’re currently doing can be done by someone else. They could even do it better than you.
  • [21:00] Although Vicky does not have anyone in the Philippines right now, she does have someone working for her. An extra set of hands is incredibly helpful.
  • [21:20] Feel like you can’t let go of something? Let go of one thing as a start.
  • [21:40] Upwork can be a bit hit or miss, but if you want to test this outsourcing idea out, try websites like Upwork.
