Publisher's Summary

Entrepreneurs often suffer from "superhero syndrome" - the misconception that to be successful, they must do everything themselves. They are not only the boss but also the salesperson, HR manager, copywriter, operations manager, online marketing guru, and so much more. It's no wonder so many people give up the dream of starting a business - it's just too much for one person to handle. But outsourcing expert and "Virtual CEO" Chris Ducker knows how you can get the help you need with resources you can afford. Virtual Freedom is the step-by-step guide every entrepreneur needs to build his or her business with the asset of working with virtual employees. Focusing on business growth, Ducker explains every detail you need to grasp, from figuring out which jobs you should outsource to finding, hiring, training, motivating, and managing virtual assistants.

Awesome Audio Book - A MUST HAVE!

Would you listen to Virtual Freedom again? Why?

I enjoy listening to this audio book over and over again! Every time I listen, I get something new out of it.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how Chris gives you step by step processes on building your team. He tells you the "insider" tips that he has learned throughout his years of outsourcing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

What I liked most about this book, was Chris's attitude in regards to the worker. He sees them not just as labor but as human beings. He stresses that these are real people who deserve the same respect and expectations that every worker should receive no matter where they are working from.

He covers a variety of case studies that help you visualize different VA arrangements. He includes the pitfalls that person faced in implementing that approach so that you can save time in your own application of a similar arrangement.

What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

The narration was good. His classic British accent felt a little stiff compared to how I know that the author speaks. But, I'm American. What do I know? ;)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

There is a lot of information in this book. You will probably want to divide it over time or relisten so that you can digest and think about how you would apply the lessons included to your own situation.

Any additional comments?

Keep a notepad handy or plan to bookmark and go back to take notes. There are a lot of URL references throughout the book that are hard to keep in your head.
