The Way We Work
August 3, 2007 by Guest Blogger

Tim Ferriss, an enterprising entrepreneur that claims to work only four hours per week, recently published a book about how he does it.
Four Hour Work Week Blog

It’s an interesting read. We’re not entirely convinced he only works four hours per week 😉 but he offers some sound advice on streamlining operations, being more productive, and enjoying the life you have now instead of waiting until retirement. One of the keys to success that Tim recommends is outsourcing anything that can be done for less than half of what it would cost you to do it yourself (or that you don’t know how to do yourself). He includes everything from typical business activities like customer service, web development and administrative tasks, to checking email, cooking and even online dating.

Tim is new to oDesk but we introduced ourselves to him last week, and he’s going to test us out. He included oDesk in a recent blog post about Extreme Personal Outsourcing€? and we hope to hear more from him in the future. In the meantime, if you’€™d like to learn more about how you might be able to save some time at work or outsource your love life, check out.
