Stuck reading through a book I’d had written for me, I’d become tired by the third read-through and still finding mistakes and typos despite the writer claiming it has been proofread.
I applied the rule I like to use at work. Each of my days is worth $1000, and if a job is going to take up valuable product creation time, be boring and can, be outsourced, and cost less than that, then I hire a professional to do the grunt work for me. Five minutes after deciding to delegate I had hired a professional proofer for the job at exactly $100.Elance.com has made many tens of thousands of dollars out of me. Upwork.com has also saved me many, many weeks of hard and frustrating work and allowed me to make tens of thousands of dollars per month. It’s the perfect win-win.
Next time you have a boring but essential job which needs doing. Consider outsourcing. I put the job post up, send out some automatic invites and back came a top person for the job with good references and experience.
