How We Overcomplicate OFS – Practical Advice

I started outsourcing without any blueprint – I just jumped right in without even knowing if the pond was deep or if I’d find any fish there. I did it because I believed that, well, everything will just fall into place.

Fast forward to today, now helps millions of business owners grow their businesses by having an OFS by their side.

I understand that not everybody is like me. Not a lot of people run into a pitch-black cave without knowing what to expect, so I get why you’ll have questions you need to answer first before making any decisions.

Everyday, I get emails and questions about outsourcing that are pretty simple and don’t need a lot of hand-holding. But I understand that there are different strokes for different folks, and some look at things differently than I do.

Let’s try to simplify these things:

  • Posting a job
  • Narrowing down candidates
  • Hiring is scary
  • Taxes are a non-issue
  • Trust
  • How do you hire someone?
  • Hiring

These things may be really simple for some, but for others, having no answers can make them not outsource altogether!

For those of you who might need a guide on outsourcing, I encourage you to do two things first. Go to and

  1. search for jobseeker profiles
  2. post a job.

It’ll only get easier from there!
