Outsourcing Effects on YOU. Computers are wreaking havoc on all sorts of jobs throughout our economy. Add to that millions of jobs being sent overseas eliminating not just jobs but entire industries.

Big brand companies cut their work forces by 2.9m in US and hired 2.4 overseas. Manufacturing employments collapse from 19.5m to 11m JOBS.

Manufacturing plants shrunk by 12% nationwide.

These were stable middle class jobs and the driving force of US economy.

Two things I want you to know:
1)No one can get rid of your job but you
2)Companies and individuals are becoming to dependent upon this concept of outsourcing and delegating.
3)Outsourcing is becoming the new norm…

Everyone wants to outsource — get someone else to do it.

If you are a major corporation or successful company trying to scale and can outsource to provide better margins and a better experience do so. But too many small entreprenuers are trying to do the same thing…..but the motivation is different – Entrepreneurs are outsourcing cuz they don’t want to do the work!

Everyone wants to delegate the task….
Everyone wants to be in power
Everyone wants to have someone else do the menial task….
The ideas is to duplicate yourself —- but y0u are duplicating what?

You DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DO IT YET

Robots have replaced countless machinists, tellers, inventory inspectors, garment worker, travel agents……. Pharmacist, Lawyers, paralegals, astronaunts, store clerks, soldiers, babysitter using identification chips, sportswriters, cashier, phone operators, telemarketers, sales people, and surgeon in the future

Consider Priceline, Travelocity among others, have all but crowded out travel agents.
Tesla is hoping to sell its zippy plug-in cars straight to customers, eliminating the salesman.
Google has a goal to replace the driver of the car
OUTSOURCING AND DELEGATING will crush you from two angles
1)You aren’t exceptional you will be outsourced
2)You are an executive or manager or entrepreneur and trying to outsource or delegate prematurely.
GET GREAT BEFOR YOU DELEGATE
BECOME EXCEPTIONAL B4 YOU TURN THE TASK OVER…
KNOW WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN’T WORK….
IF YOU THINK THE TASK IS BEYOND YOU THAT SHOULD BE YOUR WARNING.
Two things I want you to know:
1)No one can get rid of your job but you
2)Companies and individuals are becoming to dependent upon this concept of outsourcing and delegating.
You need to KNOW your job inside and out and be the EXPERT
Write down what you are doing that works….
Write blogs and books about it.
Become the celebrity — the expert

Tractor replaced the ax and the plow – the farmer will be replaced. Man invents a machine to make life easier, and then that machine reduces the need for man’s work. Ultimately, it’s a virtuous cycle, because it frees humans up to work on higher-value tasks.

But technological change can also cause huge economic dislocations. And right now, the great fear is that robots are taking over jobs faster than humans can adjust.

High-tech firms may be the most vibrant part of the economy, but they just don’t require the manpower of former blue-chip companies. “At the height of its power, the photography company Kodak employed more than 140,000 people and was worth $28 billion,” writes the computer scientist Jaron Lanier in “Who Owns the Future?”

“But today Kodak is bankrupt, and the new face of digital photography has become Instagram. When Instagram was sold to Facebook for a billion dollars in 2012, it employed only 13 people.”

White-collar jobs were once deemed mostly immune to such automation, but that is no longer true, either. Carl Benedikt Frey, an economist, and Michael Osborne, a professor of machine learning, at Oxford University estimate that about half of American jobs — sailors, paralegals, you name it — are susceptible to automation. “Software substitution, whether it’s for drivers or waiters or nurses” is coming, Bill Gates said recently at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington.

“Twenty years from now, labor demand for lots of skill sets will be substantially lower. I don’t think people have that in their mental model.”
