Upwork: The Rise of The Outsourcing & Freelance Giant

In this video we’re going to look at a brief history of outsourcing and freelance and then look at one of the biggest freelance sites today, Upwork, to see how the system operates in the modern world.

Freelance. Have you ever wondered where that word came from? It’s kind of obvious when you look at it: free – lance, a person with a lance who is free. The word appeared in the early 19th century to describe mercenary fighters who were not sworn to any lord: like the famous Ronin warriors of Japan.

And, you know what? The concept hasn’t really changed over the centuries.

In feudal times, mercenary armies were called on for 3 main reasons:

1 – You didn’t have an army
2 – Your army wasn’t big enough for your current problems
3 – You didn’t want to keep paying the army after the war was over

Change those warriors for IT technicians or copywriters and the needs and motivations are almost exactly the same.

Today, we’re going to look at the history of Domino’s Pizza and look at how they turned around their fortunes by realising that their product wasn’t just pizza, it was delivering pizza. Domino’s Pizza have undergone one of the greatest turnarounds in recent business history.

In under a decade, they have gone from being a punchline about quality, with a share price below $10, to being the second largest pizza company in the world and a darling of the stock market, priced over $150. Domino’s stock has outperformed Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon this decade

The company started back in 1960 when Tom and James Monaghan bought a pizza shop called DomiNick’s. James sold his share within just 8 months since he didn’t want to give up his full time job at the postal service. The shop couldn’t use the original name so they eventually settled on Domino’s Pizza. Their logo used a Domino tile with three dots, representing the three pizza shops they had acquired by the mid-sixties.

Before the 70s started, they were already franchising and had grown to over 200 stores by 1978. Over the next few decades they grew steadily, both in the US and overseas so that when Tom Monaghan finally retired in 1998, he sold 93% of the company to Bain Capital Inc for $1 billion.

Soon, they moved to take the company public and it went on the stock market in 2004. But by 2009, the shares were down at $8.76 and the public perception was that Domino’s made some of the worst tasting fast food in America.
