Outsourcing Case Study: Free Your Time By Hiring Filipino Workers

This was one of my favorite case studies.
In this case study you’ll learn:

  • How to tell if a programmer is good
  • How to avoid bad workers
  • How to train your workers
  • What skills to look for when hiring
  • How to free yourself from work (David’s income has tripled while working less!)
