Key Points

"One way to decide on what to invest in is to look at the market and assess what is selling while having still some PTBS (problems to be solved). "

"Think about how can you provide more value to existing customers and then … just ask them. You will also be “networking”. "

"Setting deadlines is always a good way to assess a freelancer’s reliability. "

"Probably without Outsourcing I wouldn’t have a business. "

"Freelancers tend to vanish into thin air. "

"Finding a reliable freelancer who can make decisions on his/ her own is very difficult. "

"When speaking about customer base, what doesn’t grow eventually ends up dying. "

"Sort out what problem you can solve and then you have a Business Model to explore"
