Today's special guest is Linh Podetti. Linh's the CEO and founder of Outsourcing Angel. Outsourcing Angel is an Australian based offshore recruitment agency that specialises in providing premium Virtual Assistants from the Philippines to companies around the world like Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Europe, and Dubai.

Here's a sneak peek at what you'll hear:

 

  • How Linh managed to hit it out of the park the very first year of running her online agency even though she had almost no online skillsets. (Get this: Linh was creating websites for customers and providing them a SEO service and she had no clue how to do either one!  Here's how she pulled it off....  - 1:24
  • The tremendously valuable skill Linh possesses that gives her the rare ability to start up almost any business in almost any industry.  - 2:05
  • A very important question to ask yourself before starting any new business venture that can potentially save you a lot of frustration and heartache. This is an almost stupid-obvious question, yet, surprisingly, most people never ask it. - 3:55
  • A “2-second mindset-shift” that can potentially skyrocket your business's profits while doing LESS work! - 5:10
  • Are you thinking about hiring a VA or need help with outsourcing projects? If so, listen carefully at 7:00
  • The “dark” side of outsourcing sites like Upwork and other freelancing platforms. Hear Linh's cautionary tale at 8:50
  • Where on the planet to find some of the most highly skilled and loyal workers… and… hire them at basement-bargain prices! - 11:15
  • An uncomfortable and sobering question to ask yourself if you're a one-man-band.  - 16:10
  • A laughably simple way to spot inefficiencies in your business and... what to do about them.
  • An eye-opening insight into how most business owners are wasting time and limiting their business's profits. (Worst part? The average business owner is completely in the dark about this.  - 17:10)
  • A criminally stupid mindset that keeps many freelancers broke and working harder than an ugly stripper. - 18:12
  • A little-talked about “learning curve” when you hire a new virtual assistant or employee. Knowing this will help you keep your cool early into the relationship if they screw up or misunderstand your instructions. - 21:00
  • Linh debunks the common myth that all people who hire freelancers from developing countries are money-grubbing scumbags. (In fact, people who hire freelancers from developing countries are doing far more good for theses freelancers than any of their self-righteous critics. - 22:30)
  • Linh opens up about her heart for the underprivileged.  - 27:00
