In this third episode of The Unstoppable Profits Podcast I invited outsourcing expert Tyrone Shum, to share his tips, strategies and steps to outsource your business so that you can stop working fifty to sixty hours a week and live the freedom lifestyle.

Outsourcing can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know where to start. Tyrone answers a lot of questions and problems that stop a lot of people from outsourcing.

If there’s one person I could ask about outsourcing, Tyrone’s the go-to-guy to turn to. He’s been doing it for over five years so why not learn from someone who’s been there and done that? Tyrone even mentioned to me that during his three month trip, he worked no more than four hours! Is that crazy or what? He’s created a business where it’s pretty much hands off.

In this episode, you’ll find out:

  • How Tyrone Shum went from working fifty to sixty hours a week selling ‘dragon boating’ equipment, down to just four hours a week, thanks to outsourcing.
  • Tools and apps to help you with outsourcing.
  • Where to find virtual assistants – the websites and the steps to recruiting new staff.
  • Why you should hire full-time right from the get-go.
  • The biggest problems most people make when outsourcing and how to avoid it.

  1. Great interview Aurelius and Tyrone. Lots of great tips! I especially agree with the part about having a full time dedicated person who will be committed to helping your business, rather than someone part time who is juggling a bunch of clients and being spread too thin.

    We do our best over at Outsource How to help small businesses with finding good help with information too. Drop by some time, we are always looking for quality guest writers 🙂

  2. Hi Aurelius, this podcast is a vaulabe resource that answeres a lot of questions I had and many I did not even think of asking. Although I am only now looking into starting an online business, listening to Mr. Shum has been a big boost to my confidence, thanks to both of you for sharing!

    1. Thank you Yvette. It’s AWESOME to hear that it’s given you that boost of confidence. Some times we do need a bit of that to get us going.

  3. This was a great interview with quite a lot of tips from Tyrone. Thanks a lot.

    Tyrone mentioned a centralized password protector system he uses to manage passwords for his VAs but didn’t say the name. What system is this?

    Keep up the great work, Aurelius.

    1. Hi Glenn. Firstly, thank you for your comments.

      Good question, the password protector or more so a password manager is – 1Password. It’s a Mac app only I think.

      Though, I, myself, use LastPass. You can get it at lastpass.com. It saves all your passwords and you can retrieve all your passwords wherever you are. You don’t even need access to your own computer.

      Is that what you’re referring to?

  4. Thanks for the quick response, Aurelius. That was what I was referring to. I use LastPass myself but didn’t realize it could be used to manage passwords for that purpose. Thanks for the insight.
