3 Key Points:

  1. Recommended websites to source freelancers include: Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and 99Designs.com.

  2. Save money using freelancers and contractors versus W2 employees. You won’t need to pay into Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, vacation pay or unemployment benefits. In addition, freelancers overseas often offer a lower hourly rate as well.

  3. A Virtual Assistant is often the first freelancer entrepreneurs hire.
