I’m really good at a few things and clueless at many others. And there have been a hundred times when I’ve thought about learning [insert new skillset here] to save time and, if I’m honest, feel like I still had what it takes to acquire a new skill to create something. 
I thought about learning how to mix a podcast for Founder To Founder and even learning how to code to be more technically useful at AirShr.  
Acting on these thoughts would create false economy because the apparent savings would have inevitably led to greater expenditure. 
Instead, I went looking for freelance specialists who could help me deliver my vision. I’ve used all the major freelance websites. They promise to connect you with high caliber talent working around the world for cents in the dollar. 
The good news is that for the most part, this promise plays out as expected but it’s not without some important learnings which I wrote about recently. 
In fact, on May 16 I’ll go into detail about how to build technology products using freelancers with the team at Inspiring Rare Birds. Want to join us?
