You’ve probably seen today’s guest at least several times a day on social media, unless of course you’ve been sleeping under a rock…

In June 2013, Scott Oldford was $726,000 in debt due to a failed business venture. For many people, that may have signaled the end of their entrepreneurial passions. But desperation has this funny way of unlocking creativity

Scott realized that his biggest problem had been failing to bring in a consistent stream of qualified leads for his business.

The only way to get out of this mess was to find something that worked and leverage the hell out of it. So that’s what he did, and three years later, not only has he paid off all the debt and but he’s generated multiple millions in revenue using this weird but effective online formula I like to call the Sidewalk, Slow Lane, Fast Lane Method or SSF Method for Short.

He has helped thousands of entrepreneurs succeed by teaching them how to replace themselves through outsourcing. They succeed as they stop doing the grunt work in the business and become the CEO.

He created OnlineJobs.ph, the largest marketplace to find Filipino workers, and ReplaceMyself.com where he helps entrepreneurs implement everything they know they should be implementing, by outsourcing all the work.

While making a full-time living he rarely works full time. His team of 19 full-time Filipino virtual assistants do the work in his businesses, while he manages the process. They range from programmers, designers, and webmasters, to writers, researchers, a project manager, and just general VA’s.

John has made millions of dollars online directly from work that his Filipino workers have done for him and now teaches others exactly how to do the same thing.

If you’ve tried outsourcing before, but haven’t heard what John has to teach about it, give it another try. John’s teachings are SURE to change the way you look at running your business, outsourcing, and the success you have in doing it.

MJ DeMarco is the current founder of Viperion Publishing Corp., a media company focused on online and print content distribution. He also is admin/founder for The Fastlane Forum, the webs' leading destination forum for start-up, finance, and entrepreneurial business discussions.

He was the former start-up Founder/CEO of Limos.com (1997-2007), a global ground transportation aggregator and marketplace that he successfully built and grew into a profitable multimillion dollar company, all with no money, no formal training, and with just a few employees. In 2001, he sold the company and later reacquired the company via bankruptcy reorganization. He later sold the company again in 2007 to a Phoenix based private equity company.

Not long ago, MJ DeMarco lived with his mother, mopped floors, and sought the dream like so many others: the dream to live free from bosses, 9-5 jobs and life mediocrity. Through rigorous years of self-study, countless errors and failures, MJ cracked the code to wealth and shockingly discovered that it had nothing to do with jobs, 401(k)s, mutual funds, or penny-pinching your life away for 40 years.

By rejecting society's preordained "settle-for-less" financial roadmap, MJ was able to "retire" YOUNG in his thirties without sacrificing lifestyle. (Yes, he drinks Starbucks coffee, drives exotic cars, and hasn't canceled the movie channels! OMG!) In retirement, he writes part-time and operates his forum which promotes Fastlane entrepreneurship. He lives in beautiful Scottsdale Arizona and enjoys traveling, dining, entrepreneurship, softball, fitness and nutrition, working out and obviously, has a fanatical passion for the Lamborghini marquee.
