    Well, i get to the point now that i am considering outsourcing but i am afraid that when i explain my methods to someone he'll take the course and start for himself.

    How do you guys do this?

    That is a real concern and it does happen. Only way around it is to break the job into several parts and assign each to a different shop.

    While it does happen sometimes. For the most part, freelancers make their money by doing tasks assigned to them, not necessarily taking the idea and running with it. texas_amy is right, go with different people for each piece of the project.
