Knowledge process outsourcing has been big since the last few years now. There is a booming business of hiring private tutors from Asian countries to help primary and high school kids of the United States. This is working well, because American parents are able to effectively use the fruits of broadband to get their kids high quality tutoring in the sciences and math at more economical rates.
Scott could use his experience to build an outstanding service in this field.
Not saying that I do this just because I`m advocating this... but here goesI read Scott Peck`s "A Road less traveled". He`s a psychologist and said that "Delaying gratification" is a good way to get things done. i.e. You can either finish off that first hour of work in checking personal mails/forwards/Googling etc and then feel like the rest of the day is drudgery to get by.. OR you promise yourself that if you completed your day without wasting time, you`d get a whole hour to do your favorite stuff. Kind of like keeping the best for last so you can go home with a happy face.. this is kinda similar to DefMall`s post, but this one keeps you working well, in anticipation of the `good times` coming soon. Somewhat like getting through all the eggplant and lettuce in your plate first, so you can save the fried chicken for last.
Can you list your preferred importing agents? I believe it would be useful to assign an agent who will take care of the shipyard movement of goods, and also manage the customs etc, and later charge for the total service? Thanks in Advance,Swaroop
