Ben Jones on Sub-Contracting For Small Business Makes You Money

Many businesses begin with very few employees and, as such, are incapable of completing larger projects. Instead of resigning your business to fight for pennies, learn to use the strengths of other businesses to propel yours to the next level. It’s possible, if you’re really savvy, to even use the strengths of other businesses as your primary business.

Ben Jones, Founder of One World Trading, is our featured guest in this Episode of The Small Business Trends Radio. Ben walks us through the endless opportunities of sub-contracting.

Here’s a sampling from the show:

  • A sub-contract — is an agreement between two companies providing services or products. One is a prime contractor that has negotiated an established agreement with a customer which is already in place. The sub-contractor then receives all or part of the responsibilities according to the agreement.
  • One strong advantage — of hiring sub-contractors is the ability to take a job you may not have been able to perform otherwise. For example, if a job requires a particular specialist and you do not employ one, hiring a sub-contractor allows you to take the job, provide the specialist, perform the service and make some money.
  • Where is the best fit — for the sub-contracting concept? Anywhere that you see a need for a service or product – that you can negotiate fulfillment for.

    I listened to the full interview and heard – “Step 1: Laugh at your mistakes.”

    Did I hear it right?

    Rose, I think you heard that in their first sponsor’s opening ‘commercial.’

    Ben Jones,

    I am interested to hear more about One World Trading’s services. I am helping an entrepreneur with different administrative tasks and negotiating tips as an experienced purchaser. The entrepreneur is involved in buying and selling metals and other raw materials from America and Europe to Asia and vice versa.

    All the Best,

    Ben gave an excellent, insightful interview and it sounds like sub-contracting can really be the way to go especially if you’re a good negotiator and organizer.
