Many of you are undoubtedly familiar with Tim Ferriss’ game-changing book, The Four Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich. With it, Ferriss’ whetted the appetites of over a million people, introducing the concept of outsourcing to a new class of entrepreneurs — those who consider themselves to be more or less “average Joe” businessmen. Sure, we’re all familiar with the concept of outsourcing. It has been a buzzword for some time now. Until recently, however, the notion of enlisting a workforce in some faraway land was a luxury reserved only for huge corporations or the mega-wealthy. Thanks to Ferriss, we learned that outsourcing can in fact have hugely positive applications for entrepreneurs who are much farther down the totem pole.
Using his own success in business as an example, Ferriss explained how he was able to attain a freer, more productive and enriched (both literally and figuratively) life by outsourcing burdensome minutiae to virtual assistants. Yet, as exciting as this idea was and still is, Ferriss didn’t tell the story to completion. Those who were persuaded by the concepts in The Four Hour Workweek were left with no real blueprint for implementing them. The process of hiring and managing virtual assistants isn’t exactly intuitive, however appealing, so the prospect of it is understandably intimidating.
