RVE 97: How to Multiply Yourself and Get More Done

This post may contain affiliate links. See our affiliate disclaimer here.

Today on the podcast, I am interviewing Jill Sessa, founder of Ultimate WP Help. Jill spoke at the RVE Summit last year (and is speaking again this year!) and has a crazy amount of experience in outsourcing while on the road. In the episode, we get into all of Jill’s amazing experience with running a company on the road and outsourcing, but we also talk about the kindness of strangers and why this is so crucial to your life on the road.

A few things we talk about on this episode:

  • Jill’s method for outsourcing — The Multiplier Effect
  • Resources where you can find and hire assistants
  • The first tasks you should outsource
  • The kindness of strangers

Jill’s advice for outsourcing and task documentation:

If a task needs to be done once, do it yourself.

If it needs to be done twice, record it using a screen capture tool.

If it needs to be done three times, document the process with screen capture and workflow documentation. Then someone else can learn how to do it in the future.

Jill’s philosophy on kindness:

“If we treat one another with kindness, you get it back ten-fold every single time.”

  • Yes! After almost 11 months of creating my online business, I am ready to start outsourcing! Love Jill!

  • You could totally outsource just about everything in a business if you want to. I still got tired of the human element and try to depend more on reliable automation technology before I introduce more heads into the mix.

    • I LOVE automation but I also came to realize just how much I love to work and interact with my clients and make a real and reliable income for others because of my own skills. I’ve talked about this elsewhere, one of the aspects of my business of which I am most proud – and humbled – is the impact I have had on the lives of those who work for UWP. That gets me up every morning.
      That being said, working through all aspects of one’s business and seeing where time is ill-spent so you can automate or pass on is reliably the best time we spend. Working ON the biz, not IN the biz, right?
      Thanks, Chris!

      • Oh yeah, I hear that. Especially for a staff working abroad. When I started my business 10 years ago, I was under the mistaken impression that Americans wanted jobs and money. Lol. That appears not to be true from my experience. It also probably has a lot to do with the industry in question. Since I’ve started more on the tech side of things, there hasn’t been near the level of unprofessionalism as in the fitness business.
