Like many of us, Tyler Gillespie was hooked once he discovered the joy of remote, online work.
Tyler dove in headfirst and moved to Costa Rica selling vacation rentals online (while he lived in one himself) and this officially kicked off working while traveling abroad.
Since working inside the rental industry didn’t lend itself to remote work as well as he’d of liked, Tyler shifted into freelance work. From there he was able to find clients, outsource work, and eventually build a proper team that became his marketing agency, Gingerbread Marketing.
As the company was able to automate and standardize more processes, while shifting into more of a niche category, content creation, Gingerbread Marketing became Content Pros.
That standardization and automation was productization, and it allowed Tyler to work very few hours since the business practically ran itself.
This makes for a valuable, sellable business and Tyler walks us through it all.
Some of the big takeaways of this episode are here:
- Remote work makes traveling abroad an option which leads to many great opportunities
- The journey from freelancer to running an agency to selling and then consulting
- How to make a service scale-able where revenue is consistent
- A powerful morning routine called “SAVERS”
