YourManInIndia (YMII) Virtual Assistance is now GetFriday

YMII and The 4-Hour-Workweek Connection

It was the year 2005, when AJ Jacobs, the Editor-at-large of Esquire magazine was intrigued by the possibility of outsourcing his personal life to a far-off land after reading Thomas Friedman's best seller book on outsourcing - 'The World is Flat'. He wondered why should only Fortune 500s outsource, why not individuals like him? This exploration led to an opportunity for our team (then YourManInIndia - a concierge service in India) to be part of a global personal outsourcing experiment. AJ's subsequent article in Esquire magazine on this got rave reviews.

Further his work on personal outsourcing inspired Timothy Ferriss to personally use 'Virtual Assistant' services from YourManInIndia (YMII) for his new book on lifestyle design and productivity "The 4-Hour Work Week". Very soon, the book became a chartbuster and went on to make it to the New York Times Best Seller list.

The individual personal outsourcing experiment grew into a separate business division, now referred to as 'GetFriday' providing virtual assistance services to global clients. It has been referred to as YMII or YourManInIndia in the 4-Hour Work Week.
