Have you ever felt like you can’t get it all done? Have you ever wished for an extra day in the week? It’s the nature of the entrepreneur and especially for authors. You’ve more likely discovered by now that there is no end in sight. Once you’ve accomplished one phase, the next is upon you and there is no end in sight.
One of the greatest insights my mentor told me was to commit in writing every task that I had to do. Then once it was in writing I was able hire an assistant to take over the tasks that slowed me down or sometimes plain irritated me.

So one of the greatest resources I’ve found is elance.com. There is someone out there who will do almost anything that you don’t want to do. I verify that the vendor has good ratings, has been on elance for longer than a year and I look through their portfolio. I’ll even contact their clients to see how they work with their clients.

And Claudia Guzman has created a program called “LeadPods” and will have a full time telemarketer work for you for $1,500 a month. You can even share the cost with others. She’ll have her team train with you to develop the program to your exact specifications.

So what will you do with an extra five to ten hours a week?
