In a busy and hectic world where 24 hours in a day sometimes isn't enough, entrepreneur Tim Ferriss says he found a way to live a more balanced life—by outsourcing it to people in India. Jean talks to Tim—a 30-year-old who runs his own multinational firm, yet has time to break the Guinness World record in tango—about about how he outsourced personal and work projects. Tim also talks about his book The 4-Hour Workweek.
Tim discusses connecting with people in India through online services and outsourcing nearly any task for the price of $5 an hour. For example, one couple outsourced their wedding planning, he says. Plus, Tim talks about taking a 15-month trip around the world while continuing to run his company and make money, thanks to personal outsourcing.
