Well, I’m back from my Philippines outsourcing tour, and it’s time to share what I learnt.
If you’ve listened to episode 254 and 255 then you’ll be well aware of just how positive an impact outsourcing various roles and tasks to people in The Philippines can be. So I needed to see for myself and I did so on an outsourcing tour hosted by David Warne of Cornerstone Business Solutions.
Joined by five motivated business owners (and fellow SBBMers – you know who you are ;0) it was an absolute eye-opener and mind expander as we visited a variety of outsourcing options and got to understand the various business models available to us.
In this episode of Australia’s number one marketing podcast, I share those business models, plus give you some key insights in to why the Filipino people are the right people for the job.
Yep, it’s another big show. Let’s do it!

“You walk in to class in second grade. You can’t read. What are you going to do if you’re going to make it? You identify the smart kid. You make friends with him. You sit next to him. You grow a team around you. You delegate work to others. You grow your business.”

What a great episode. Loved how it differed a little from your regular format. I’d love to hear you do some more episodes like this where you are our guide and take us inside something you’ve learnt.
Thanks bud – great point. I’ve had a structure for a long time that I stick to – so it’s nice to vary it every now and again. Next step is talk-back – I’d love to do live talk-back where listeners can call in and / or tweet.
TIm, agree with your analysis, they were some tough questions, but your guest did well.
Hey Tim, hope your doing well mate! Just wanted to say I loved this episode! Great insights into just how much outsourcing can help, its a popular topic right now! I did want to ask you though, where do you go in order to hire someone on a VA basis from the Philippines? I hear so much about how they are excellent people to work with and are very affordable in Aussie dollars but how do we go about contacting and hiring someone? Cheers! Murph
