23. Tyrone Shum on Sharing The Wisdom of Top Property Investors Through Podcasting

Successful people in all walks of life exhibit some common traits. You’ll find that most are lifelong learners. They’re always questioning. They’re often big readers, and always seek out knowledge – improving and honing their skills.

But most of all they’re not afraid to reach out to the best of the best in their field and learn from them. It’s a trait that my guest Tyrone Shum on this episode of Get Invested – has turned into an art form. Tyrone is host of the hugely popular Property Investory podcast. In essence, he picks the brains of the crème de la crème in the property investment game so you and I can benefit from their experience and knowledge.

Tyrone’s own story – from real estate agent to digital marketing guru, nomad entrepreneur to top podcast host and budding property developer – is an inspiration in itself.

Here are some of the brain-filling goodies you’ll get from my chat with Tyrone:

  • Why knowledge is nothing without action
  • Distilling the wisdom of property experts through their stories
  • The value of applying just-in-time learning
  • The power of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
  • Building an audience and impacting the lives of thousands
  • The inspiration of Rich Dad Poor Dad
  • Moving from property investing to property development
  • Avoiding analysis paralysis
  • Living the digital nomad life funded by passive income
  • Why there’s not such thing as the property market (Hint: It’s got a lot to do with emotion)
  • Common strategies of top property investors

16. John Lee Dumas on Business, Anti-Success and Where He Puts His Money

When it comes to podcasting, there are few bigger names than John Lee Dumas, host of the hugely popular Entrepreneurs On Fire podcast. And it’s a very great pleasure to have him on this episode of Get Invested.

With ‘Entrepreneurs On Fire’, John has really been an inspiration for so many people, from Silicon Valley heavyweights to wantrepreneurs looking for a place to start. It’s easy to see why. He’s a guy filled with generosity of spirit and knowledge, and in this episode we get some great insights into his business and investment journey and what he’s learned along the way.

Compared to some of our other episodes, this one’s an absolute machine-gun dance (under 20 minutes), but I think you’ll agree it’s packed with gold.

Here are just some of the nuggets we unearth:

  •      Why John believes the best investment he ever made is himself
  •      Why he’s passionate about dollar cost averaging and index investing
  •      How John invests in practice, and his big wins
  •      Why he recommends getting your hands dirty before jumping into a degree
  •      The importance of investing in a team
  •      Why he thinks he’s so bad at many things
  •      Why it’s better to be a person of value than success
  •      The difference between in-vestors and out-vestors
  •      Why he lives in Puerto Rico (and maybe you should too)
