SPI 020: Chris Ducker on Virtual Assistants and Outsourcing

By Pat Flynn on

Note: As of 2015, Elance has combined with oDesk to create Upwork. The links below still work, but the company name has changed.

In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast, my good friend Chris Ducker from Virtual Business Lifestyle joins us and shares his expertise and wisdom in the world of virtual assistants and outsourcing.

Hiring help for your online business, whether it’s just for one task you’d like to complete or on a more full-time basis, can definitely take your business to the next level and at the same time make your business a lot more passive and automated—as long as you know how to find the right help and work and communicate with your hired help in an efficient manner.

I’ve used sites like Elance and Odesk before to do a number of “one-off” projects, from designing WordPress themes to transcription work and even article writing, however recently I hired my first full time VA, a programmer who is designing a number of websites for me and clients of mine, and the experience so far has really blown me away.

Like you’ll hear me say in the podcast session with Chris, it’s like I’ve been able to clone myself and get twice as much done.

My only regret is that I wish I had hired someone to help me leverage my time sooner.
