How to grow your business through Outsourcing – Interview with Chris Ducker

Chris Ducker

A few months ago I came across Chris Ducker, an English guy who for the last 10 years has been living and working in the Philipines. 5 years ago he set up his own outsourcing business Live To Sell.  I’ve spoken to Chris many times over the last few months and I’m delighted that Chris agreed to do a video interview via Skype to talk about outsourcing, using a virtual assistant and his new service which is aimed at matching entrepreneurs with home based virtual assistants.

Chris also has a hugely popular blog Virtual Business Lifestyle where he documents his journey to be a virtual CEO by the end of this year and has great articles and interviews top internet entrepreneurs to learn their secrets!

In this video, just over 38 minutes long, Chris talks about ‘on boarding’ a VA, top uses for a VA and his recommended websites.

    Hi Matthew,

    Valuable insights.

    I have to agree, outsourcing is the next step in any online venture.
    Really enjoyed the video…Awesome thoughts on Virtual Assistant and the impact of depleted quality of work on the audience.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Adam, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It’s only my second ever video, so hopefully they’ll be many more to come. You should look to use outsourcing where you can, it’s like replicating yourself for low marginal coss. Good luck with your venture, Matthew

    OMG! How can I be the first person the comment on this?

    Chris is a legend in my eyes. He’s bringing such great energy to the virtual business lifestyle arena as well as entrepreneurship.

    This is a great interview Matthew. Well done.
