I have been negotiating to buy a tiny software company, (I mean really small), and I just got a huge amount of work in my other business, (I run an angel group in Boston Area). So now I'm strapped for time and trying to decide if I really want to buy this company.

Does anyone have any experience or resources for offloading much of the work,  outsourcing dev team, QA, etc for tiny companies?

I have a part-time technical support/trainer, but a new version of the software is coming (mostly complete) and I need to revamp a tired looking website.

There are two products both in the learning space. We are a reseller in one and sell the other.  (I really can't disclose more than this as the final sale has not been completed.

Thanks

I'd say it depends on the nature of what you are expecting. Managing outsources or cosources can be a job in itself. If the project is very customized you may spend almost as much time managing someone to complete what you want, vs. doing it yourself

If you haven’t read Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Work Week book, I’d recommend it. Covers a lot of this sort of stuff with practical examples.
