This past week I had the great opportunity to go to a conference where Tim Ferriss, oDesk CEO Gary Swart, and eLance CEO Fabio Rosati all presented (see blurry camera phone pic above).

The topic was true to my heart:  Creating a Virtual Workforce

A lot of wonderful information was shared during the discussion and I don’t think there is a need for me to repeat it here.   Suffice it to say that much of what was discussed expands upon what Tim covers well in his book and can also be found at the oDesk and eLance websites.

At the end of the session I left with a renewed excitement over the opportunities for accessing a diverse workforce throughout the country and the world and the tools used to manage the processes! Now, I’m off to oDesk to hire me some more VA’s, programmers, and designers! 🙂

BTW, do you think the whole concept of a “virtual workforce” is just a fad, or are we seeing the tip of the iceberg?
