It’s a Small World After All

Nowadays with the internet, the world is a tiny place. People all around the world have local United States phone numbers and keep to the USA business hours as well. This fact is killing some businesses while it is allowing others to thrive. The reason for this is some businesses are lucky and some are not.

Lucky Companies Succeed Under Any Circumstance

The lucky businesses are aware that the world is shrinking and that people in China, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh are trying to take over our jobs. They stay ahead of the game and keep their companies profitable by taking advantage of the foreign work. Companies all over are outsourcing their work to other countries. Popular outsourced tasks are manufacturing, web design and information technical, technical support and customer service and even data entry. By outsourcing work, some companies are able to flourish.

Unlucky Companies Don’t

The unlucky companies try to compete with the other countries and start dropping their prices, restructuring and cutting back on quality. Unfortunately it is very hard to compete this way and many companies have been forced to shut down.

Get Lucky and Start Your Own Business

Today outsourcing has become so popular and accessible that anyone can do it. It even gives people with absolutely no skills a chance to start a business. Anyone can start a business that offers writing, editing, graphic design or any other task that can be outsourced. All you have to do is find people in another country to do your work for you at a lower rate than you can charge and you can keep the difference. There is almost no overhead if any, at all for one of these businesses.

Use Your Expertise or Familiarity to Make More Money

If you have an expertise or are very familiar with a community or topic that people need help with, you can act as a consultant to your workers in other countries and mark up the price a little more than usual. An example would be if you are asked to do some work for your local community. People in Pakistan have no idea what your community is like but with your help, they can pull off a pretty good job.

Work Anywhere

The best part of all of this is that you can do all this work from bed, or a lawn chair by the pool, whichever you find more appealing.

About the Author Amir Lehrer

I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".
