Why your Business will never grow if you try and do everything yourself With Amanda and David of SAAngels
Boost Hospitality Podcast Season 6 Episode 3 The beauty of Outsourcing and VA and with the advancement of the internet is that when you want to hire a member staff, you don't have to hire somebody from the local area. You could but again, you couldn't get the right person of what you need. With the countries like Philippines and India where the state of living and pay is so less and you are able to find a quality member that can do the task you need and for them they can get a job satisfaction. For the most part why I love out sourcing is that I can set a task at 6pm and I know that when I wake up in the morning it is done. Like most people, I did everything. I did the payments, I did the ID check, I did the telephone calls, replying to enquiries by phone call by email by text. You have to be realistic, nobody if gonna be as perfect as you.

What is Serviced Accommodation? With Jason Living
Boost Hospitality Podcast Season 6 Episode 1 Jason - worked as commercial planning consultant in London and had a property in London. He became aware of people letting properties on what people calls serviced accommodation, that is typically taking a residential rental property and letting it out on a short term basis. So typically, if you want to rent a property in most landlords and letting agencies, it takes months as minimum. But serviced accommodation is a much shorter period, something that would do one night stay and some properties would do a minimum of two night stays and it is fully furnished and the bills are covered as well. Jason and his team has a total of 185 properties, and mostly are on the north east. And for Jason, the rise of Airbnb, Booking.com and etc are a significant factor in the world of Serviced Accommodation. For the full podcast series, go to Boostly.co.uk/podcast
