    Everyone keeps saying "YOU HAVE TO TAKE ACTION!"

    No you don't.

    You don't have to really do anything to earn money.

    All you need is just $500 dollars, and a good eye for talented freelancers.

    Lets say you want to build a profitable eCommerce website?

    1. Go buy hosting and a domain.

    2. Then hire a freelancer to design your website.

    Now you have a nice well designed website. What about product? Don't sell products, sell virtual services. Then outsource your services to a freelancer.

    Now you have a supply line set up but no buyers, what do?

    Hire another freelancer that is talented in sales to find leads and sales for you on commission.
    If you want organic traffic also, hire another freelancer that is a SEO expert to boost your ranking in google.

    Now you have a profitable eCommerce website.

    And you the owner did nothing, but give people jobs.

    Congratulations.

    Stop doing everything yourself.

    If you have no money to hire with, go get a job.

    but there are still some works involved, finding a freelancer to do the job.

    Try a crowdsourcing website. They work like a charm.

    It looks easy. But even dealing with a decent and professional freelancer has its own set of challenges, let alone the fact he might try to scam you when he sees you are little "green". You also should be able to do most of the work yourself to be able to control the quality and recognize bad job or you will eventually get screwed.

    I wouldn't do this, I prefer to deal with some middleman, like CPA network, I supply the traffic, they supply the rest, never have to leave my apartment, never have to meet anybody.

    Everything you listed involves taking action and also does involve some work. Maybe you have less than good understanding of what "Take Action" means!!

    Yeah, sounds very nice on paper but tell me - where do you find people who are so experienced/won't scam you, to get you sales/leads? Yeah, you could try to list yourself as an advertiser on CJ but people pay good money there for a sale and you need up-front $$$.

    You cannot make money if you don't do anything.

    Yes you have, where do you think those $500 comes from originally? You didn't get those for free, or did you?

    Surely coca cola owner or new investments of big companies come with the owner working on it. If you are able to hire smarter people than you to do your visions then you are set to become a capitalist, my friend

    To the OP....

    Clearly you've never tried this if you think outsourcing takes no work. Often times it's almost as hard if not harder than doing the job yourself.

    Saying that outsourcing is a set and forget method is a fallacy.

    Talking from personal experience I've successfully outsourced something when;
    1) I needed something done beyond the level of what my skills in that particular area were at the moment.
    2) I needed to scale something up at such a degree that a bot could not make the job at the quality level I required.

    Outsourcing requires some degree of investigation and research, of testing workers to get the quality/speed/price you are looking for, it's a pain in the ass if you don't have a clear idea and direction to where you are going.

    I have a sort of list of people I've hired and have delivered what I wanted, so yeah, now it's just a matter of sending an email if I'm looking for something I've already researched (worker-wise), but if I wanted/needed someone with a different skill-set, it would be going to step one all over again.

    TL;DR: OP is stating a fallacy.

    I can understand what the OP was meaning, but yes, hiring freelancers IS work. You may not be doing the actual hired work (building a website), but you do have to manage it all, which can take a lot of your time, especially if you've hired several freelancers.
