      1. Tasks you can outsource :

      4. Get hands on experience on Pod
      5. After one year when you get hands on experience, many things can be outsourced.
      6. Outsource to external team on project base.
      7. Principals – keeping things lean, flexible.
      8. When you want what you want you can guide people well

    • Dharanidharan Rajkumar

      I can outsource many of the work and just focus on the main areas.

      Not oursource anything except design in the beginning.

      When I can get hands on at content creation in the beginning, I can gain mastery at it over a course of time.

      It also helps when you start outsourcing the work later.

      We should be focusing on end-to-end before we earn a stable profit (for atleast a year).

    • Nitanjalii Bedi


    • Ramapriya Valmiki

      My three lessons from this podcast

      • Being hands on helps the learning curve will help to be confident

    • Sandeepa Zakarde

      Thanks Sidz for sharing different phases
      In an initial part of journey –
      1. Design – pay for it to get it done from an expert : Logo design, signature logo,
      Community management, Content management later On

      – create a lean system first after getting hands-on and then delegate

      2. I will not automate my Funnel.
      3. I will outsource my Video Editing and Design.

    • Nidheesh

      Our approach will be to delegate funds when our cash flow is stable. Initially, we should prioritize delegating design tasks, as they contribute to the aesthetic value. Over a 12-month period, we can assess progress and gradually appoint delegates step by step. For instance, we can start with a communication manager, content manager, and community manager, before considering other roles. It’s crucial to pay attention to the landing page and content quality. Creating an effective funnel should be a priority from the outset. As we grow and succeed, we can continue to delegate responsibilities to ensure continued prosperity.

    • Janardan Kar

      #ilhfamily #ilhdeeplearner

      1 Delegate design – Website, Logo, Boxes, Photoshoot
      2 Landing page
      Editing video, audio
      Content creation – do hands on for 12 months.
      3 Then outsource operations, content manager and community manager.
      Advertising, PR, specific paperwork and legal and chartered accountants to be outsourced. Idea behind the whole thing is to remain lean and agile and simple in structure.

    • Dr Neil Gautam Shah

      My 3 action steps after listening t this podcast

      Delegate when you have enough revenue generated and need time for more productive tasks.

    • Nishu sharma


      Takeaway 1: Gain Hands-On Experience
      The podcast emphasizes the importance of gaining hands-on experience in various domains like design, video editing, website development, ads, funnel creation, and branding. By personally working on these tasks for a year, you develop a solid foundation and understanding of the processes involved. This hands-on experience enables you to make informed decisions, effectively communicate with outsourced professionals, and ensure the quality of work.

      Takeaway 2: Prioritize Building a Lean System
      During the initial year, it is recommended to work on all domains independently to create a lean system. By focusing on each aspect yourself, you have complete control over the quality and consistency of the work. This approach allows you to streamline processes, identify areas for improvement, and optimize your operations. A lean system minimizes waste and ensures efficient utilization of resources.

      Takeaway 3: Outsource Strategically for Growth
      Once you have established a strong foundation and achieved a stable cash flow, it is advisable to strategically outsource certain tasks. By outsourcing design, ads, PR, website development, and video editing on a project basis, you can leverage specialized expertise and free up time for sales-focused activities. Additionally, hiring a communication person, content manager, and community manager can further streamline operations and enable you to focus on revenue generation. This planned outsourcing approach allows for scalability, flexibility, and the ability to adapt to changing business needs.

      By initially working on various domains yourself, you can gain valuable experience, create a lean system, and eventually strategically outsource to optimize your operations, free up time, and increase cash flow.

    • Nitesh S

      1. All system setup except design, you should do it yourself to atleast 1 year period.
      2. Start with delegate & outsourcing only when you see enough cashflow & profitability from your work & business.
      3. You can delegate and Outsource – communication, content & system management, advertising, video editing, design work & PR – only once you have good hands-on in these areas, working for at least a year or more.

    • Aruna Singh

      1. First learn yourself and try to understand all the processes yourself. Gain authority.
      2. Get hands-on with your content as this will come from your heart straight – landing page, email list, learning management system, editing of videos—all things to be done end to end by yourself.
      3. Design can be one of the things you should outsource.
      4. Delegation depends upon your level of income.
      5. Pay attention to quality as it will not be cheap.
      6. Delegate when you are ready with practice, doing it yourself and have gained enough authority and cash flow.

    • Laxmi Prasanna

      Hands on first

      Experience it with your results.

      Then delegate

    • Gaurav Juneja

      *Non-core activities can be delegated
      *Core activities have to be done on your own to get absolute clarity. once you learn the basics then delegate it.
      * Two levels of delegation( Internal & External)

      Your greatest assets are not your clients, they are your loyal team members and your team members will take care of your clients.

      Keeping things at high standard.

    • Dilshad S

      The following can be done by you then outsourcing
      Managing your landing page.
      Manage LMS.
      Editing your own video
      Audio editing for the podcast.
      Managing your own website, funnels, etc
      Clicks and links, the progress of business on a single dashboard
      Till enough to create cash flow do it yourself then can outsource
      Paid traffic, designing do it yourself until create income.
      How to write ad copy
      Image creat using CANVA
      That learning curve you go through initially to get better design.
      For all the system setup, content creation setup, traffic creation, and ad setup do it yourself, then outsource.
      Designing can be outsourced.
      Delegate outsourcing: hire one person like a general manager who took charge of external and internal communication.
      The second person can be the content creation
      The third person is a community manager.
      These are the three people who support me.
      I have a home office and a virtual address for company registration.
      advertising, website management on pay per task basis, video editing, video thumb, PR person for news articles in different places, Managing google funnels, and all the tasks happening
      You don’t need large teams. Nobody is on your payroll. Everything is outsourced to an external agency. If one agency is not working we can switch to another agency. Or I can use both agencies simultaneously.
      When to outsource is after getting hands-on
      Keeping things lean,
      Optimization is around profitability
      There is no manufacturing cost.
      Another team for event productions.
      Everything in this world requires people, when you know what you want you can guide them to do what you want.

      Delegate & outsource only when there’s enough cash flow to afford it.

      It’s important to get hands-on experience wherever possible in order to delegate more effectively & get highly desirable results

      Keeping open the option for flexibility in delegation is less complicated & more risk free

    • Rakhi Chawla

      1. Lean Systems create exponential growth instead of linear ones as we feed back into the system with learnings and mistakes—big fan of lean systems. Already acting on it and moving ahead.

      2. Learn, strategize and optimise the process; that’s how I have learnt all my Mathematics & Computers-Coding, and now business!

      3. Building Business is an art, and I need to learn that art myself before I can build a second line of leaders who can multi-fold the growth.

      Great Work Sid!
      Thank you for all what you’re doing…

      1. Stick with the plan – I commit to not falling into the shiny object trap and go for outsourcing to service providers in the first year of implementation.

      Really needed this podcast! Gained a lot of clarity.
      My main takeaways:
      1) You can outsource design work in the beginning
      2) Edit your own videos in the beginning
      3) Put your ideas in a MindMap
      4) Once you’ve got the hang of it/enough hands-on experience and you want to free up time to nurture your community, you can start building an internal team (communication and general manager) and external team (advertising etc) . Usually takes around a year to do so

    • HunlangLynshing

      My top three learning are:
      1. Outsource only after having my hands on the things.

      Top three takeaways from this podcast of Sidz:

      2) What should you not outsource or delegate in the knowledge business? Everything for a year except design work. Design because you need to look the part – it’s not what you deliver, but how you show up and deliver it. Everything else you need to get into the skin of the game.

    • Chandan Mukherjee

      When you recognize that your time could be better utilized for more impactful work and you find yourself burdened with repetitive tasks, it may be an opportune moment to consider delegation and outsourcing.


      Build you home (BUISNESS RELATED AREAS) first. As per your choice and place with material of your choice then redecorate it by outsourcing decorator.
      so, hand on experience first when comes to major parts related to business and once the cash flow is enough i am going to outsource it.
      Keeping things lean will work for me.
      Keep the project base team as per your requirements when you feel right.

    • Meghana Tirumala



      Task Delegation & outsourcing
      Design, video editing, branding, PR can be outsourced .
      But only outsource design in the initial stage -logo designing, box designing & at the most website designing.
      skills we need to be hands on are building our own landing pages, email list, LMS, editing of own video content. speed will build up gradually if ywe know how to create content & edit it. later YT editing can be outsourced.
      Outsourcing should begin once good cashflow starts or atleast after 1 year of doing maximum things on your own. Designing headlines & hooks should be done by self. Writing the add copy, end to end needs to be done on your own.
      .After this one can delegate email communication, then content manager, then community manager .
      Delegate your communication, website , video editing design work, outsource PR, google adds tracking can happen at one place. In knowledge based business no big teams are required, no permanent role is required.
      Also Outsource development work like the platforms. Keep things lean & flexible
      opitimise business around profits.

    • Ajeet Kumar Ranka

      My Take Away from this podcasts are
      1. Do not Outsource anything initially until you must be just perfect
      2. since you know after hands on then you will be able to get minimise in price and maximize the quality.
      3. when you have moral authority of all your work then you can easily get hands of to other.
      4. give at least one year or until get more cash flow after one year.
      5. Delegate an outsource according to pay per project so you can save more money.


    • Suyash

      Key take aways:

      3 just need few persons to help in last phase when you need more time to go higher.


      My Top 3 Action Points:

      1. Learn to do yourself first.
      2. Delegate at the later stage
      3. Get better at content creation by regularly doing it.

    • Aditya

      I made the biggest mistake in my journey in digital coaching by trying to delegate a part of my coaching itself to another person but then realised, soon enough, that for you to delegate your work, your creation, to someone else first there must be congruency apart from proficiency. If they are not congruent with your mission and vision, however proficient they may be in the field, it just won’t work out. Also in this podcast I’m happy that Sid corroborates what I have always believed and done, hands on first, every minute aspect of the work and project on hand, then delegate mundane, routine tasks and retain tasks which require your personality and character as inputs into them. Thank you Sid
