Build Your Business Bootcamp. Team Up To Scale Up and Outsource Your Way To A Charmed Life
Monday 15 Oct – Sunday 21 Oct, 2018. Hoi An, Vietnam.
Charmaine Thring loves to outsource tasks online to free up her time to travel. It all started when a task an agency was in charge of went over budget, and the employees did not communicate or complete the project plus asked for more money, so she took over for her friend’s business. The solution she found was online, Odesk now Upwork. Having worked in corporate marketing for one of Australia’s largest cinema chains, the solution to being able to work online, travel and earn money from marketing then presented itself.
The Charm Marketing agency was born 9 years ago and it was clear that clients and freelancers speak a different language, so her new mission is to teach clients and freelancers how to best work together. What better way to make money and work your own hours by having others do the work for you while you enjoy life.
Charm Outsourcing is the lifestyle, education & travel part of the business so now you can live this life too. Mixing her love of Vietnam, where she lives half the year in Ho Chi Minh City, she now runs an annual Outsourcing Mastermind Retreat in the beautiful, ancient city of Hoi An.
What better way to learn to outsource, have her mentor you as the freelancers work while you soak up all the knowledge and enjoy the local delights. This year we are also welcome special guest speakers and workshop leaders.
Our first announcement is Samantha Justine who started working as a Virtual Assistant and has not only progressed to specialise she continues to run the largest VA Facebook group.
Samantha will be providing her insight into hiring, systemising and how to work with VA’s and freelancers from the Philippines along with a hands on workshop on Sales Funnels.

The Top 3 Must See Sites in Hoi An
My Son Temple Ruins
My Son is a unique Hindu sanctuary located near Hoi An. The ruin was the capital of the Champa Kingdom from the 4th to 13th century AD. My Son is Vietnam’s sacred place that is equivalent to Egypt’s Valley of the Kings and Cambodia’s Angkor Wat.
The site has 5 sections which spans over 142 hectares. All of the buildings are made up of quality fired brick with stone columns and have sandstone figures showing scenes from Hindu mythology.
The central tower, kalan, represents the holy mountain, meru, the center of the universe. The square/rectangular base, bhurloka, is a depiction of the human world, made by brick or stone and decorated. The main tower, bhuvakola, stands above this and is constructed by brick with applied columns and an eastern false door.
In 1999, My Son was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Called “Nui Ngu Hanh Son” in Vietnamese which means “Mountains of the Five Elements”. The Marble Mountains are named –Nui Kim Son (metal), Nui Hoa Son (fire), Nui Tho Son (earth), Nui Moc Son (wood) and Nui Thuy Son (water).
We will climb up about 150 stone steps from the foot of Nui Thuy Son, to reach the most beautiful observatory spot: the Riverview Tower or Vong Giang Tower in Vietnamese. All others four little sisters mountains also offer more natural caves, grottos, tunnel and temples but are not open to the public. Below the mountain, a complicated system of caves and tunnels interlaced with shrines, pagodas and gigantic statues make this an exceptional experience as it depicts “hell.” It makes you want to repent your sins.
Legend has it that during Vietnam War, 17 Buddhist nuns shot down two American planes from the mountains. You will have to visit and find out all about the history from our amazing tour guide, Man.
