Chapter 1: Subcontracting: A Rooster’s Guide to Delegation
Subcontracting is the process of hiring other freelancers (your hens) to complete parts of a larger project you’re responsible for. As the wise rooster once said, “A single rooster can’t hatch all the eggs.” Subcontracting allows you to focus on your core competencies while delegating other tasks to skilled individuals.
Here are some reasons to consider subcontracting on HostRooster®:
- Scalability: Handle bigger projects by dividing and conquering.
- Expertise: Leverage the skills of other professionals to deliver high-quality work.

Chapter 3: Managing Your Flock Like a Boss Rooster
Now that you’ve assembled your flock, it’s time to manage them like the boss rooster you are. Here are some tips for effective subcontractor management:
- Communication: “A cluck is worth a thousand words.” Establish clear lines of communication to ensure everyone is on the same page.
- Set expectations: “The early bird gets the worm, but only if it knows when to wake up.” Be clear about deadlines, deliverables, and performance standards.
- Foster collaboration: “Teamwork makes the dream work.” Encourage your team to work together and share ideas.

As the head rooster, it’s your responsibility to ensure that your subcontractors’ work meets your clients’ expectations. Here are some strategies to keep your eggs Grade A:
- Implement a review process: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Set up a system for reviewing and approving subcontractors’ work before submission.
