Contracting out of an internal business process to a third-party organization
Outsourcing war mal irgendwie ein Trend - und jetzt fällt es vielen Unternehmen und Unternehmern auf die Füße. Wir sprechen in der Folge über die Trends der Vergangenheit und was zwei Jahre Corona sowie ein Ukraine-Krieg für Einflüsse darauf haben. Denn diese sind leider riesig. Aber wir versuchen auch eine Lösung zu finden. In der Vorbereitung haben wir uns ein wenig am Markt umgeschaut und dabei zwei gegenläufige Trends festgestellt. Weder ist das eine noch das andere richtig - beide Richtung sind legitim. Dabei ist vor allem festzustellen, dass geschäftskritische Prozesse zurück ins eigene Unternehmen geholt werden. Outsourcing wird aber auch noch betrieben. Denn immer dann, wenn der Prozess nicht geschäftskritisch ist und/oder der allgemeinen Vernetzung dient zeigen Start-Ups wie byrd wie der Hase laufen könnte. Eine echt spannende Folge, bei der wir uns am Ende für die beste Lösung entscheiden!

Jim advises that in addition to investing in the skills required to run your business effectively, you should also invest in the financial skills that every business owner requires to thrive.

[00:36:00] “I love numbers, but bookkeeping and taxes are unbearable to me, so I strongly recommend that you do what you do best and delegate things you can outsource, such as accounting and payroll. There are advantages to doing so, especially if you are the CEO of a company,” Jim Kruspe

With 7 years of leadership experience, Navpreet Randhawa has a passion for Enterprise SaaS businesses with focus on the financial technology sector. He found himself on the path to being a self-described “accidental CFO” by having a drive to help build companies and be successful. Navpreet has leaned into prioritizing what is best for his business through the help of using technical tools and outsourcing many traditional aspects of a company's finance department. As CFO at Minna, he strives to be as efficient and effective as possible by being a strategic finance leader that is open to any options that may help the bottom line.To be a successful CFO, Navpreet feels you need to be practical and honest with your time and responsibilities. If you are stretching yourself too thin, then you need to reassess how your role is functioning. He thinks it is important to be open to using outside resources to make your job easier and better supported, searching out the best specialists to handle tasks. This means you need to admit to what you are and are not good at to help you face and solve problems to ensure growth at your company and in your role.Navpreet believes it is important to be willing to rediscover and reinvent the wheel for how finance functions have been run in the past. He thinks you need to try avoiding feeling insecure. If you work hard and continue to educate yourself then you won't ever fail, you will just be able to learn new things and apply those to new opportunities.In this episode of The CFO Playbook, Navpreet talks about why it is important to crawl before you walk and walk before you run. He provides insight on his path from accounting to founding a company, and ultimately taking the learnings he gained from those experiences to be a forward thinking and open minded CFO.

The U.K.'s plan to send refugees on a one-way trip to Rwanda is causing outrage. In a controversial, multimillion-pound deal, the British government will send some asylum seekers to Rwanda instead of allowing them to stay in the U.K. This plan marks a major shift in how refugees are treated and could have a far-reaching implications for the rest of Europe — and for thousands of refugees fleeing war and persecution. This week, Nothing is Foreign explains how the deal works, why thousands of lives could be in jeopardy, why some are calling this immigration policy "neo-colonialism" and why critics say Rwanda isn't a safe haven. Featuring: Bella Sankey, director of Detention Action. Theogene Rudasingwa, former Rwandan ambassador to the U.S.

Finding quality people is hard. Gone are the days of hiring managers asking, “Why should I hire you?” Candidates are now in the driver's seat – and they want to know why they should work for you. A positive candidate experience can have a real impact on an organization's hiring efforts. Today's savvy job seekers are interested in things like company culture, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and learning and development programs. But only 30% of respondents report having a “great” candidate experience according to this year's North American Candidate Experience Research Report. Clearly, there is work to be done. In this podcast, Chad Creamer, executive director, North America, of Page Outsourcing sits down with our very own Debbie Bolla to discuss how employer branding impacts hiring efforts and the approaches organizations can take to appeal to today's top talent. This podcast was sponsored by Page Outsourcing.

Guest: Jacob Lorinc, business reporter Want a smoothie with a side of outsourcing? That's what customers are seeing at several Freshii locations in Ontario. Instead of a regular cashier, a virtual customer service agent takes your order before actual staff in the restaurant prepare it. Called Percy, a virtual cashier is based in other countries, like Nicaragua or Pakistan, where they earn much less than Ontario's minimum wage. This is a new customer-facing approach that could be a disruptive force in this sector in the coming years. This episode was produced by Alexis Green, Matt Hearn and Raju Mudhar.

In this episode of The Digital Business Evolution Podcast, Jess shares with us a value-filled exchange that outlines the five mistakes– that are really just lessons– that have shaped how her business runs to this day. The evolution that Jess's own business has undergone with these lessons can serve as a beacon for other entrepreneurs to look to– to gain confidence and validation, that even though these obstacles have presented themselves, it is something to grow through rather than just go through. Jess dives into the very first lesson she learns and talks about the need to hire slow and fire fast rather than hiring reactively and firing out of fear which causes us to wait to avoid the inevitable confrontation. As entrepreneurs, we also have a tendency to put our business first which leads to the second lesson Jess gives us. It is okay to put your own life first rather than build your life around your business. For most entrepreneurs, this is the reason we go into business in the first place, yet how quickly we forget and get bogged down in doing just the opposite which can cause many to burn out. Jess delivers the next lesson to keep our relationship with clients in mind when learning to “sell the island rather than selling the vehicle.” Jess explains that when interacting with clients, keep their intended destination in mind instead of trying to sell your product. The final two lessons are the most intrinsic in value when it comes to being an entrepreneur. Don't get distracted by shiny objects. While this could mean a pivot in your business, Jess contributes that this could also mean getting distracted by comparing ourselves to others. This leads into the final conversation over which entrepreneurs often feel they need to have everything figured out. There is no need to put the immense pressure on ourselves that this mentality can cause– we are not in the “Sororities or Fraternities of Suffering” and can let our egos get out of the way so our businesses can evolve and flourish. As always, cheers to your evolution! Episode Quotes “I think mistakes are lessons. I think everything we go through, we grow through.” –Jessica DeRose “My business is still a job, but I get to build my life first.” –Jessica DeRose Key Timestamps [1:34] – The start of Jess's entrepreneurial journey; [2:09] – Accidental entrepreneurship & side hustles; [3:08] – Mistakes are actually just lessons; [4:35] – Lesson 1: Hiring too fast and firing too slow; [7:34] – Outsourcing things that shouldn't be outsourced; [11:06] – Lesson 2: Building my life around my business and not my business around my life; [17:51] – Lesson 3: Selling the airplane and not the island; [23:38] – Lesson 4: Distracted by shiny objects [30:00] – Lesson 5: Thinking I needed to have everything figured out; [32:28] – Don't be part of the Sorority of Suffering; [36:25] – Ego is your biggest overhead; [37:47] – It's ‘Come with me,' not ‘Look at me'; [38:39] – Recap of the 5 Mistakes/Lessons Episode Resources Be a part of my text family by texting “Podcast” to 973-358-7836.

Our guests on the show today are Malcolm Wilson and Mark Manduca, the respective CEO and CIO of GXO Logistics. GXO is a 7-billion dollar market cap company that provides logistics services to companies around the world. The company was recently spun off from XPO Logistics and now has the freedom to invest aggressively to helps its customers with supply chain and warehouse automation. COVID, supply chain disruptions and rising labor rates around the world have made many companies start to think deeply about their supply chains and to consider outsourcing and automation. As such, given how well GXO would appear to be positioned for the future, I was really looking forward to talking to Malcolm and Mark about: The rationale for the spin and what having more autonomy will allow GXO to do; The structural tailwinds that are behind the company as it relates to e-commerce, outsourcing and warehouse automation; Why GXO is definitely not a commoditized warehouse company; Why the company is a buying Clipper; and The importance of return on capital when it comes to capital allocation This episode of Compounders: The Anatomy of a Multibagger is sponsored by Tegus, an innovative and disruptive company that is changing the way professional investors work.

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Molly Rose Speed. Molly has a great story. She is a military spouse who had enough of being a corporate accountant cubicle dweller and decided to create a business to help military spouses and others reach their own dreams through entrepreneurship. In fact, she was named 1st Special Operations Group Spouse of the Year. She is the creator of Virtual Assistant Academy which provides trusted Virtual Assistant solutions and flawless tech execution to busy entrepreneurs and business owners. Molly has become the go-to professional for some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the speaker/author and content creator industry. Even the former president of Chicken Soup of the Soul is her client. Molly has created the life she dreamed of and is helping others do the same. And I've asked her on the share her story and how to completely outsource your business. www.VirtualAssistantManagement.com Molly was a young, focused executive hustling in corporate America. She woke up one day and realized that there was more to life than just moving up the corporate ladder. Her husband was being deployed at a rapid speed. And when he was home, she was working and they hardly could see each other. So, she quit. Her husband came home to find out she did not have a job and said, “OK, you've got 4 months to figure this out.” She started doing freelance work and had success. It evolved into more clients and success in the personal development space. She was creating the life she wanted and other military spouses kept asking her how she did it. She saw an opportunity to help other military spouses do what she was doing in the virtual assistant space. Virtual Assistant Management was born. How did being a military spouse help prepare you for entrepreneurship? You're given this huge responsibility of running the ship when your spouse is gone. The house, the family, the finances, all the little things that couples would do, but on your own. There is a level independence that being a military spouse teaches you which helps to transfer to entrepreneurship . It also teaches you to be resilient and adaptable. What there a catalyst that spurred you to quit? And what is your advice for someone who is in the same place you were and wants to make the leap to entrepreneurship? She went to a conference for high-potential young professionals. The term entrepreneur, the ability to use your skills and talents to create and sell services was introduced to her. Learning this gave her the lightbulb moment that there was another way. She was getting completely drained every day in the corporate world and was in tears a lot of days. She had to trust in herself and created a plan and took action on it. She had the choice and the power – it just needed her to take action. She did. Talk about having a plan and taking action. How do you advise people in this area? First, you must figure out what you actually want. Define what you want your work to be. For example, Molly defined hers as a position that she can do virtually, on her own time, that pays her at least 75% of what she was making in the corporate space. When you envision what you want, the universe will open it up to you. But it takes an action plan. You should know what you are going to do every day. You should reach to others and let them know what you are doing. Your Power 100 list – the most influential people and those close to you that should know as they may be able to help you. “By doing nothing, you are not going to get anywhere.” Other lessons that you feel are most important from your journey? Being present in the interactions with people you are with every day. How you spend your day is how you spend your day – and it is your choice how to spend it. It is amazing how fast you can build a network. Pay attention to the people that show up and the opportunities – they can come out of nowhere and are so important. Be open to them. Talk to us about utilizing virtual assistants, the dos and don'ts, etc. Entrepreneurs have a passion for the solution they are providing, but as they grow, they find that they wear a lot of hats and have created a number of jobs for themselves. There is a big difference between running a company and creating a job for yourself. Entrepreneurs need a plan to outsource from the beginning. When it comes to hiring a virtual assistant, it should be the first person an entrepreneur hires as they can where several hats and take a number of things off the entrepreneur's plate. They give you leverage at a lower cost. If you were coaching someone on how to hire their first VA, what would you have them do? First, recognizing all the things that are on your plate and then start cherry picking all of the things you want to offload. This serves as your initial job description. Start with 5 hours a week. Each week should have a weekly meeting with the VA and an action plan with roles and responsibility. You can use a project management tool like Monday to help. Communication throughout the week is important. VAs where a lot of hats and have a number of ways to communicate – pick the medium that works best for you. Make them part of the team, share your goals and how they can make a bigger impact. By knowing the bigger picture, VAs can find opportunities to make things even better. Clarity is very important for everyone in the process to maximize productivity and success. Tell us about hiring an outsourced, COO… This is the goal of a tenured VA in their career. They are the right-hand person for a business owner. They take your vision and run with the strategy, the how, and run and delegate a team to help execute the vision. A level below that is an OBM – outsourced business manager. This can be done at a fractional level, and you don't need a 40 hour/week employee. They can execute their duties in 10-20 hours per week. What are the major duties Outsourced COOs do and how can they do it in less than 40 hours per week? Technology and automation is a big part of things. Outsourced COOs are very good at building systems. They are good at taking projects and mapping everything out, hiring the needed contractors to help to do it. They can do payroll and book-keeping and interface with others in the business and even clients. They are the gate-keeper for the entrepreneur. Costs for COOs range from retainers of $5000 to paying a commission or a mix of both. Talk about automation and its importance… If you are doing any task that is repetitive, you need to automate it and automate it all the way down to things like email templates. Online schedulers are very important to maximize productivity. Your sales funnels, how you sell, and after-sales engagement, etc. should be automated. Every area of a business, if broken down, can have a lot of it automated. Other best practices to free time and be productive? Take some time and look at your calendar for the last couple weeks. How did you spend your time? Did you enjoy it? How many things would have made sense to avoid or eliminate? Pay attention to what you are saying “yes” to and decide if you should be saying “yes” to these things. Working in sprints of say 90 mins at a time and then having a little break is good to help. You can also work in 45-minute sprints with a short break to maximize productivity. You must be intentionally with your scheduling and plans. You must also create days off. Automation is very important to help make this a reality. Any other advice for managing and hiring VAs? There is a big difference between overseas and local VAs. It takes more work for overseas, but there are great people. For overseas, you must be very specific and be willing to work across the different time zones. In fact, local VAs can even help hire and manage overseas VAs. There is a place both types in a business. Best Quote: By doing nothing, you are not going to get anywhere. Molly Rose Misfit 3: Time freedom – wherever you can create this in your life, look for it and enjoy it. There is great importance in human connection. Those your surround yourself with greatly affect all areas of your life. Choose wisely in your connections. We are here to support and engage with one-another. Give and have gratitude. In the end, it is about the impact and experience you had on this earth. Show Sponsors: Five Minute Journal www.MisfitEntrepreneur.com/Journal Blue Lagoon Resources www.BlueLagoonResources.com

Greg Schooley, EY-Parthenon US Value Creation Leader, joins Winna Brown to discuss what tasks PE is outsourcing across business functions such as finance, IT, HR and customer service to create value. The path to successful value creation in private equity (PE) today goes beyond typical levers such as G&A cost-cutting, sales force effectiveness and strategic sourcing. It's about an approach that leverages digital tools including automation, strategic outsourcing and advanced analytics. Going forward, PE-owned companies of all sizes may need to look at outsourcing as a way to access cutting-edge technologies and capabilities that can lead to revenue growth opportunities, in addition to reducing costs.
054. Do you have too much on your plate? Can you simply not get everything done? Or, would you like to just work less? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, my friend, chances are, it's time to outsource something in your business. Now, I know what you're going to say. “Outsourcing isn't an option for me. Nobody can do __ like I can.” However, friend, the reality is (1) you cannot grind and do everything in your business forever and expect to grow, and (2) there are things on your to-do list that can be done by others. And, I know you hate to hear this, but chances are, there are things on your plate that can be done better and more efficiently by others. With this in mind, in this episode of Priority Pursuit, we're discussing how to successfully outsource tasks in your small business. And, because I'm a photographer and I know that there are several photographers listening, I'm going to explain how I outsource editing with Photographer's Edit to give us an example to work with. The steps we discuss in this episode include: Determine what you truly can & can't outsource. Create SOPs for the project or task you want to outsource (AKA establish your editing style). Decide who you're going to outsource this task to. Provide examples. Give feedback & allow the contractor who did the work to make corrections. Anticipate that a few changes will need to be made.

Recruiting and retaining talent are essential for growth strategy, but they are common pain points for many companies. Today's guest, Max Fisch, has built a successful business around the art of outsourcing, and in this episode, he shares what his journey as the founder and CEO of Real Estate Project Solutions has looked like to date.About Max Fisch:Throughout Max's real estate career he has worked in mortgage origination, financing, wholesale acquisitions, rehabbing, and investments. Max's own experience of working with virtual assistants inspired him to found a virtual assistant outsourcing company for the real estate industry. His latest venture, Liberty Business Solutions, will provide the same service to companies in other industries. Max is driven by his desire to have a positive impact on others. Episode highlights: Building and sustaining a business is an incremental, deliberate process, and as long as you are continuously moving forward (no matter how slowly), you are on the right track. (13:50) Max believes that the people who work alongside him in his businesses have been the key to his success. (16:52) In order to sustain a successful business, don't rush the hiring process, and don't be afraid to fire people if they aren't a good fit. (22:25) Technology has changed the way we work, and companies should all be taking advantage of the fact that so many people are now working remotely. (29:58) Success is more than just financial status. It is also about how you feel when you're working, and how much of an impact you are having on other people. (34:42) Max's best advice for entrepreneurs:“Always be improving. I don't care how much or how little, but always be better than the day before.” (15:29) Building a business is hard work and it may take a lot more time and effort than you were expecting, so celebrate the small wins and always look ahead.

So recently, I've been thinking a lot about the mental load. The whole thing. It unfairly targets women, and how no matter how hard we try to have equal partnerships, it never seems to work out that way. It's that ever-illusive work/life balance struggle. So this week, I have Michelle Broadbent, a business strategist who is an expert in work-life balance on the show. This episode talks about delegation, outsourcing, and working with what you have. Whether you're a single parent or self-employed. The brilliant Michelle has you covered.

What is the first thing you outsourced/hired out for? What did it look like for you when you first started outsourcing? Have you ever made a wrong hire? Have you made any terrible hires? Does your team design your templates? How often do you talk to the people on your team? What does communication look like on the day to day? Was it hard for you to give up the reins in your business to other people, especially fully over maternity leave? PSST! COOL NEWS: I've got a new course coming soon all about TEAMS.

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge talks to the owner of https://www.realestateprojectsolutions.com/ (Real Estate Project Solutions), Max Fisch. Real Estate Project Solutions was born because people in Max's network asked how he sourced the VAs who worked within his real estate businesses. Real estate project solutions offers virtual real estate teams and data experts that investors and real estate professionals can hire with ease. Max and Josh explore the origin of Real Estate Project Solutions. Max shares that he is big on networking. He would speak to other professionals on a daily basis who would often ask him how he saw such success with the team of VAs he built. After enough times where he was asked, Max realized there was a business opportunity where this need was not being met within his industry. Max shares that his first client was a friend of his. He helped his friend set up two VA cold callers on his team. From there, Max proceeded to take over the management of those employees. Real Estate Project Solutions now offers entirely outsourced VAs and experts – all managed on their clients' behalf by their own team internally. Max explains that you should have a robust and holistic front end approach, especially when it comes to sourcing good VAs. This makes the back end approach more seamless and simple later on down the line, he shares. Cold calling is an easy solution to implement if you're trying to affordably break into the real estate space cost effectively, Max says. Real Estate Project Solutions covers every aspect of outreach for their clients that isn't face-to-face. Max and his team hire amazing VAs, train them to be experts in the work they do in the real estate space, and then they manage the company's clients with a high level of competence and expertise. Max also explains who would be the right fit for this type of outsourcing. It all comes down to budgeting; there's no specific starting point, but you need to have the room for it in your budget. Lead time can take up to 6 months in the real estate space, so outsourcing for real estate requires a long term commitment and budget. Josh and Max explore how investors can increase their profitability. You need to either increase the top line or decrease the bottom line. That often means outsourcing work strategically.

Today I'm joined by Ashleigh and Kat of Allora Solutions Group. They are today's modern outsourcing solutionaries, focused on solving any and all hurdles that are draining your time and keeping you from focusing on real revenue driving work.

Because at the end of the day, you can't afford not to begin acting like the CEO of your business.
Tom welcomes a new guest Jon Little publisher of 'The Pickaxe' to the show. Jon discusses the historical usage of precious metals and why metal was first used to pay soldiers. Empires tend to be based on warfare and a continuation of conquering others. Barter was considered cumbersome and paying soldiers in metals while demanding payment in taxes created a market for precious metals. You can see the debasement of coinage during the Roman Empire and the inevitable inflationary outcome. War grabs resources and as governments spend more on wars they tend to have a gradual lack of return on investment. We are witnessing the unintended consequence of sanctions on a commodity superstore nation. Jon argues that a gold standard can help a country thrive within its means. We see problems with the tock indexes and CPI metrics which ignore food and energy. We have enormous debt and an unproductive labor force while Russia has very little debt. Outsourcing has created a service economy in the West. We see the modern obsession with entertainment but countries can't stream their way out of problems. Moving back to a gold standard by a major nation would make their currency far more attractive. China, Russia, and India all promote the buying of gold by their citizenry. Those that have been hurt by hard times understand the value of sound money. It's important to note which nations have chosen to not sanction Russia because that silence is deafening. Modern monetary theory and Keynesian economics are failing rapidly. Jon explains the historic results of currency manipulation. Often government promises aren't worth the paper they are printed on. People will tolerate it a lot but eventually, confidence collapses. Today, it's highly questionable why anyone would buy treasuries for a guaranteed loss. He discusses some of the risks around digital currencies both from hackers, volatility, and a potential lack of anonymity. Lastly, Jon notes that throughout history there have been periods where people have been ordered to turn in their precious metals.

He studied processual archaeology under distinguished anthropologist Lewis Binford. Jon also attended Georgetown University's Institute for Comparative Political and Economic Systems. Little began his professional career working for 21 years in the clay mining industry. He worked with companies drawing from shale mines surrounding Mount Cristo Rey in El Paso. These clay deposits were unique because two manufacturing plants from two separate countries (north and south of the US-Mexican border,) shared the clay resources. The same clay deposits were used by Mexican and US brick manufacturers. This experience sharpened Jon's knowledge of international business and labor relations. Jon also worked with dozens of clay mines near Pueblo and El Dorado Colorado. While working in the clay-fired brick industry Jon worked with Robert AM Stern architects to set a CU Boulder...
