The main thing in the (business) world is to have an idea. Or maybe you should have The Idea. That is what people with ideas think. Mostly they wait for the ideas to spring to life all by themselves.
But what when there are many ideas. And all of them are like beautiful fruits hanging somewhere in the sky. So you push one of them, give it a nudge, maybe it’ll ripe and fall.
Enough with the metaphor, and back to the real stuff. I needed an idea about ideas. So called meta-idea. I needed a way to nurture my ideas and allow new one to come. I needed RentACoder.com.
If you know what to do, and how you could do it, but don’t have time on your hands, outsource it. Every accomplished manager will tell you that. Some rich guy said it like this: “You cannot get rich by being smart, you can get rich by employing smart people”.
Some will say that in order to outsource something, you have to have some money. No body will work for no money. How to solve that? Build a prototype. Use your power of speech to find a sponsor. Be a conduit and try to add value between two parties. That is what I am think I am doing right now.
Some examples: currently my partners on RAC come from Ukraine, Macedonia and Russian Federation. In recent endeavours, I had great experience with people from Argentina, France and of course Croatia. So you see, every coder speaks the same language, and it’s easy to do something there.
