If the payment processing takes up 15% of the paycheck, the team may start to feel less motivated because they are not being paid enough. Providing directions is something that proves to be a challenge to outsourcing work globally. Guidance should be given with clarity and simplicity. Live video conferencing will help ensure the team is actively engaged versus communication through email. When setting milestones and goals, collaboration tools help ensure that everybody is on board with the ideas.

- Project management tools, like ClickUp, are helpful in making a company more cohesive.
