New Year’s 2016

We rented a house on a big mountain about 20 miles west of Ashville. It was a great and quiet way to ring in the new year.

  1. Rob, GREAT blog, especially with regard to sleep and nutrition! Two business questions for you:

    1) Have you ever priced outsourcing but rejected it, or did you commit to 100% domestic business partners from the start?

    2) Are any of the components or finished products that you have developed exported to support local markets offshore or is all software that is utilized around the world housed in the U.S.?

    Very interesting business model. And thanks for your insights on personal productivity.

    1. Hi Neil,

      Thanks for reading my blog.

      1. My company was founded in 1999, and our first product Optimize was outsourced to a company in Eastern Europe in 2004. From that point forward, we decided to reject outsourcing. Although the costs are lower, it takes longer to create the same thing, and with lower quality. It is also frustrating communicating with people in other languages with large differences in time zones.

      2. We do everything internally including our software development. The only thing that we outsource is payroll.
