“I’m not about to lose a baby over money.”

It was a shock. My wife was pregnant with our third baby when her doctor told us that she had preeclampsia. She had to have a strict bed rest, or else we’ll lose the baby.

On our way home, I decided to take time off work to focus on my two kids and my wife. As soon as we got home, I immediately sent an email to my two outsourced workers at that time to let them know the predicament I’m in, and that they’d have to take over whatever’s on my plate.

Over the next three weeks, I spent one hour each day working. Not really working. For the most part I just answered questions my Filipino workers had for me.

They took over everything! My blog, marketing, SEO, Google AdWords, customer service… everything!

Weeks had passed and my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I didn’t get back to work right away though. I had to continue supporting my wife as she went through postpartum depression. 

Three months. I spent three months not working. At most, I spent an hour a day answering emails. I expected things to be bad when I got back. But lo and behold, my business thrived without me! But then again, not everybody had the right help like I had.

Russell Brunson, host of The Marketing Secrets Show Podcast has me telling my story and sharing how I started outsourcing when I was at Lake Powell. Have a listen to our conversion and hopefully, be inspired.
