My first speaking engagement since returning from 6 months in Australia was in Kensington, London. The West London Property Network was welcoming and offered food and drink at the ticket price too.

If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry, here are some of the key points to help you.

Education:

When starting out make sure you learn with someone who is also investing and who’s values you relate to. Check them out on social media, look for reviews and speak to people who are learning with them.

Accountability:

Seek out coaching as part of the learning to make sure you have a sounding board, someone who can guide you and hold you to account too.

Perseverance:

Make sure you have a strong and detailed reason why and a visual idea of how you might spend your time when the property has enabled you to create freedom.

I shared with the audience some images of my round the world adventures and how in the last 6 months I’ve been able to work out of Australia!

To do this it’s always been important to have other people manage my rental properties and guest houses. So that’s another critical thing to consider if you want to avoid creating another job for yourself! Create your perfect lifestyle using property strategy

Apart from private investors, much of my success in just a short time has been working with others in joint ventures.

Collaborating in this way brings the opportunity to share your skills and to benefit from someone else’s skills or money too. Sharing the profit and risks in a deal gives comfort and confidence.

One of the interesting investment areas I’ve discovered is the Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS) pensions.

I’ve both borrowed and lent through this mechanism and having my own pension pot to manage and grow is very satisfying too.
My guest house strategy focuses on local authorities and those people who need accommodation fast through the emergency housing departments and children’s services. It’s short term letting per night and provides shared bathrooms and cooking facilities. We use live-in managers and I have someone who looks after these as a business. There is a huge demand in this area.

Alongside my property business I teach and coach people who want to progress in the world of property investing.

My programme is online with easy to watch webinar videos.

Finally, I’ve just written a book which is being edited at the moment. I shared the book covers I’m considering and took a straw poll of hands to see which one people liked the most.
