“I couldn’t believe ReplaceMyself. I know the trainings aren’t for me, but I was going through them and learning tons of stuff, and then it was like, “here you go, you guys do this stuff”!, and I didn’t have to do it!” – Dean Soto

Dean has a full-time job in the Aerospace industry.

At the same time he is running a 6-figure side business by outsourcing all the work.

What’s he doing?

- Web development/design

- Local Business Marketing

In this case study there are so many things to learn about using a Filipino VA for doing either one of those businesses.
