The Pros and Cons of Outsourcing for Your Small Business
Outsourcing Options for Small Businesses When most people think of business outsourcing, they immediately imagine huge corporations shipping customer service and IT jobs overseas, but the truth is, outsourcing is becoming a great new way for small business owners to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and maximize profits.
When you learn how to outsource projects and tasks that are not the central purpose of your small business, you free up your time and energy to focus on whatever it is that your specific business does best. Some examples of small business projects and tasks that can be economically and productively outsourced, are office work, writing and design work, marketing and web-based retail, public relations, specialist and expert consulting and help, and various management services.
Learning how to outsource projects that are not the main focus of your small business, can move many of your fixed expenses to variable expenses, and also control capital costs, reduce labor costs, increase efficiency, reduce risk, and enable you to start new projects quickly. The idea behind outsourcing is to take advantage of the most expert help available, without incurring the substantial costs associated with hiring and training a new employee.

The purpose of the Mentorship Porgram is to build healthy, one-on-one bonds between mentors and women who have been sexually exploited or trafficked.

Women will be shown respect and value through the fostering of healthy and appropriate social relationships.
Mentors will help empower mentees to dsicover their sense of integrity, honesty and self.

Mentors may help their mentee with self-esteem, sense of purpose, planning and decision making, interpersonal competence, and empowerment through activities such as going to the Columbus Zoo, going out to lunch or dinner, seeing a movie, or any other socially appropriate activity.
*This is an all-day training. Therefore, there will be a lunch break to go get lunch or feel free to bring your own bag lunch with you.
* After being trained, volunteers who wish to become a mentor must go through an application and interview process.
* Finally, anyone volunteering at The Well & Mentoring Programs must obtain a background check.
