Let the experts handle this

If you have read those Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, you will know the money-making item that we all have is our brain. And well, time is also an essence.

Free your time so you can use your brain to buy yourself more time and value.

Just because you do not know accounting doesn't mean you cannot have a balance sheet for your own company - subcontract the accounting works out.

Just because your English sucks doesn't mean you can't write a book - get a ghostwriter to do it for you. Or even a translator.

And when you have no time to get more sales for yourself, subcontract it to some energetic young people who can do it better, just make sure they are paid in commissions correlating to their efforts.

My point is this.
Every reason that is holding you back can be solved - If you can't solve it, hire someone who can.

Subcontracting can be extremely cheap. Pay US$1 for someone to write a 100 word essay for you, which equates to US$4 for a one-page article. CHEAP.

Don't make your website EVEN if you know how to make it, because someone out there specialise in doing it and can free up time for you. A friend of mine spent S$800 to get someone to make a website for him, complete with shopping cart, a management system for products, and stuffs. CHEAP.

You can be a business owner cum receptionist cum helpdesk, if you have 28 hours a day. So how about getting some help from housewives who are at home the whole day, and just want some small income?

Your PRECIOUS TIME is not meant to be doing TIME-CONSUMING LOW VALUE STUFFS. It is to generate MORE LEADS and MORE SALES.

And for those of you who have a speciality and have no idea where to pick up freelance jobs, try this page - Freelancer.com, there are thousands of freelance jobs waiting for someone to pick up.

Go take a quick look and see if you can find any lobangs.

Any problem that can be settled by a SMALL amount of money (in relative terms) is NOT a problem.

Have a great weekend ahead!

Indeed. Outsourcing can fill gaps as well as free up oneself for other more value-added projects. It also creates jobs. An awesome site for ideas. Thanks for sharing, Shingo. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey bro, love that quote. Might just use it as an official tagline, if you don't mind.

Talking is the easy part. I'm nowhere as successful as what you all perceive me to be.

some ppl is just penny wise pound foolish.

i do agree with you idea. here in my office we do it - managed service/CoE (semilar concept)

Interesting.. Outsourcing only works if you know what you're asking the other party to do. Else both of you will be going nowhere when there's miscommunication...

well, it really need a witty brain to think of ways to maximise your capability to earn the maximum money.. i admit i'm still far out from this..

Again, you inspired me something here. Recently I hired hourly maid to clean my house and now I am free from cleaning stress~!!

You are absolute right max the OPB concept. Banks operate on using the OPM *Other People's Money* to make ton$ of $$$ why not max on *Other People's Brain* then, like what you recommended. It may not be applicable to all but for majority. tQ for the lobangs..

It says... work hard now.. you will be more "senang" later.

That is what Robert Kiyosaki means :p least in my opinion.

Don't sweat the small stuff when you're made for bigger stuff, right?

Netster said...

Awesome! Thanks for the tips :D

Just because we can do something doesn't mean we do it. I think outsourcing your cleaning duties is a good start.

Wenny:
Love your quote. We are all meant for bigger things in life!
