Hardest Things in Programming

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapor around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendor of these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Outsourcing Offers Startups A Growth Hack For 2017

Outsourcing helps startups innovate, improve speed to market and increase their bottom line. CEO, Founder of DR Republic, advises startups to begin outsourcing as a growth hack for their businesses.

(SALT LAKE CITY, UT) December XX, 2016-Startups and small businesses may have big ideas, but they often lack the budgets of corporate America’s behemoths. To compensate, many startups use outsourcing as a cost-effective way to expand capacity. IBM research indicates that 27% of companies outsource to reduce expenses.1 While outsourcing to save on costs is well-founded-nearly half of all startups fail because they exhaust their budgets-entrepreneurs are now beginning to discover other advantages to outsourcing.2

Considering that knowledge gaps account for 18% of startup failures, outside expertise provides needed intellectual capital for small business success.2 The growing prevalence of outsourcing has led to a good number of professionals-at every level and within every industry-leaving permanents job to pursue freelance or contract work.

The abundance of outsourcing resources available in the U.S. market means that a startup no longer needs to hire, or rely upon, one person to single-handedly run a vital segment of its business. In fact, relying upon a single individual may be an ineffective strategy; an employee who is tasked with managing every aspect of a business segment-such as IT or customer service-may burn out. As many as 40% of employees who left their jobs in 2016 did so due to burnout.2

To fuel growth, add expertise and tap into top talent more economically, startups are increasingly turning to outsourcing as a growth hack. A growth hack is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing channels and product development to identify the most effective and efficient ways to grow a business. According to The Economist, outsourcing can increase productivity and competitiveness 10- to 100-fold.3 In fact, 78% of entrepreneurs believe that freelancers give them a competitive edge.3

“To compete as a startup in today’s marketplace, you need to be a smart, agile and innovative leader. However, even the smartest entrepreneur cannot be an expert at everything; and even if you are, there simply are not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that your startup requires,” said CEO, Founder of DR Republic, Inc., a global business process outsourcing (BPO) provider.

Today, many entrepreneurs recognize the value of using outsourcing as a growth hacking strategy. In fact, 37% of companies use outsourcing to grow their business in the modern global economy.3 Business functions that are outside of a startup’s core proficiencies, such as marketing, customer service and IT, can easily be outsourced to increase speed to market and expansion of the customer base. Of the millions of jobs being outsourced in the U.S., 43% are for IT services, while 12% are for call center customer service positions.4 Outsourcing reduces overhead, allowing for additional investment in growth, development and innovation.

Khan added, “Outsourcing to experts not only saves you the trouble of performing tasks outside of your core competencies, but also cuts down on the cost of hiring full-time specialists.”
