I am tired of people who outsource every operation in their business and claim themselves Nentrepreneurs.
And I know enough people who does that since day one in business.
The blog design was brought over from paid WP theme club, tweets were posted by freelance social media marketer, site functios were based on what can be obtained from plugins online, blogposts were brainstormed and written by ghost writers; and if that’s not enough, a second class “SEO” was hired from Black Hat forum, to build links.
Yes I see you are no good in design. I see that you are no good in writing. I see you are no good in coding.
And you certainly think you are too good to sit down to read and reply tweets every day.
Someone, from somewhere, is the better person for these jobs.
“So why not just pay them to do that?”
What is the value in YOU if everything in your business is outsourced?
Why should you win in this game?
Why shouldn’t the freelancers, who do all the hard work, win?
Just because you have a “brilliant” idea doesn’t make you the special one.
And, even if you have the best business idea in the world – its value fades quickly over time and gets drown by new ideas tomorrow.
You are not the only one with ideas.
You look like a fool when you outsource everything and hope that your business will succeed one day.
Miracle like Digg doesn’t come every day.
And, where is Digg now by the way?
You are simply making others rich and wasting the opportunities to develop yourself.
People look up to entrepreneurs because they are hustler. They do whatever is needed to be done to be success. And, they lead with examples.
Think twice before you outsource another task.
Ask yourself – am I outsourcing this because I am lazy? Am I missing the chance to learn?

I’m with you on that, Jerry.
Been reading some advice from Jon Morrow lately (part of his SBO course) where he recommends new bloggers do most of it on their own when they’re starting out, because that’s the only way to learn. Outsourcing is for a later stage, when the blog becomes popular and one person doing it all is not enough anymore.
In other words, outsource to grow further after laying solid foundation and achieving some success, not to avoid work.
Without work, there’s no satisfaction or enjoyment either. Where’s the beauty of life then?
Oh wow … you were too kind to spare time reading my rants :)
