Is the toilet to small?

Is the toilet to small?

I know I have written about toilets before and women’s toilets at that – but bear with me the metaphor here is crucial!

I was at a recent event and needed to use the facilities. I entered the ladies loo and went to a cubicle. As I opened the door I almost flinched as I…

Things are easier without the internet…

Things are easier without the internet…

The list is almost endless as long as you discount online shopping and research! Have you noticed how easy and quickly you get things done when not distracted by either social media or “just checking something” or it that just me?

I believe I am quite good at “bending time” to my will. I can decide to focus on writing whether a book, blog or article, I can record a new online course and suffer no external intrusions. However, give ...

It’s all about time

Ever made a mistake, a bad one that could have real repercussions and then some how it all works out okay in the end? Ever wonder how that happens? I believe that when our intentions are good, that the universe, energy, or circumstances conspire to help us.

I have experienced this many times and I am sure once you understand you will start to see there is truth in what I am about to tell you. For example you are running ...

Is It Wise To Invest Right Now?

Is It Wise To Invest Right Now?

Yes I do believe it is – BUT only if you understand what you are doing or work with someone that you trust to help you with your best interests at heart.

Investing in property that generates 10-15% return on your money means that you are investing for cashflow rather than capital gain. I have heard of people buying property in central London – and they are having to subsidise the mortgage – that is madness, gambling and dangerous.

I am talking ...

Your Tenants is Your Asset

Your Tenants is Your Asset

Keeping with the topic of tenants … I realised quite early on in my property investment business that the tenant is really my asset. The tenant is the person that the pays the rent that enables me to eventually (after I pay off the mortgage) own a property. I understood that if I got the maths right I could not only get the tenant to help me buy a house, but I could also get them to pay me to ...

One Bad Cherry – Used to Be One Bad Apple

One Bad Cherry – Used to Be One Bad Apple

I remember helping my grandfather picked apples from the trees and carefully wrapped them in newspaper, laying each carefully in the trays to keep the apples safe and cool (and in the dark) over winter.

If one apple did go bad it would, unseen, affect potentially the whole tray.  Luckily it took a long time to rot and contaminate the batch.

Now everything is different, we don’t have apple trees in the garden any more. I tend to eat more soft fruits ...

Are you a business owner or an investor?

Are you a business owner or an investor?

Let’s debate this point – I feel very strongly about this and hope you will bear with me while I present my case – I would love to hear your comments, agreeing or disagreeing with this blog.

Why you are not JUST an investor? How you can change that way of thinking?

I would say that I have been a property investor since we bought our first property through a sourcing agent in 2004 – I didn’t know what I was doing ...

Eddie Izzard is a genius – we could learn a lot

Eddie IzzardEddie Izzard has been on the TV a lot lately – first learning about his ancestor and the paths taken by homosapians and Neanderthals across Africa and Europe, respectively. Then on his quest to run multiple marathons across Africa.  In 2009 he ran 43 marathons in 51 days. In summer 2012 his challenge was to run 27 marathons in 27 days – to mark the number of years Mandela spent ...

Wake up and stay alert

What comes into your mind when you first open your eyes in the morning? Do you spring out of bed with a song on your lips? Do you snuggle down instead and try to forget the big old world out there and the job you have to go to? Of course, if you don’t have a job to go to, perhaps you have no reason to get up.
