There are some cases where hiring local outsourcers makes sense and my seminar does cover these.
To make a profit when running your business, you need to make your dollars work as hard as possible for you. One of the largest benefits of outsourcing to other countries is that you can hire 6 full time people for the cost of 1 full time person in Canada.
Because of outsourcing, I can take on more projects and build my business faster. This helps the overseas people earn a good living and helps the local economy because I spend the money I earn here and support local businesses and non-profits.
And, I do have both local and overseas people who work with me, but if I didn't have the overseas freelance workers, I couldn't afford to hire the local people.
Outsourcing isn't evil, when done properly it creates opportunities locally and overseas. That is what I teach.
