Making time for personal life

Posted by:

One of my clients started to explored scuba diving after one of our chats. Within months she had travelled to Egypt and qualified as an advanced diver and even seen a Manta Ray !! She found something that she loved doing. She also started to think about her life and her job and what she enjoyed less.

That’s when we really started to talk about property investment and what she did want life to be like. She had a dream to ...

How good is your strategy?

Posted by:

I am not sure if you have a copy of Make More Money from Property, my second book launched in March, yet, but my whole philosophy is to focus and make money from what you know.

If you have no money, but know how to invest in property (or any other business skill) then why not focus on selling your skills and time for cash – as many times as possible. I was just talking to a mentoring client ...

Rip off Britain – earning commission

Posted by:

Fortunately I didn’t watch to the whole programme. While there are definitely cases where people are conned and preyed upon by unscrupulous traders that we need to be aware off. There is also the fact that we need to take responsibility for the decisions we make.The piece that annoyed me in the programme came towards the end when someone was talking about mortgage rates and the early redemption penalties that banks charge if ...

Ask and you will receive

Posted by:

I spent last weekend with Johnnie Cass, Daniel Wagner and Rob Moore at a new event run by Unlimited Success, which brings personal development skills together with “technical” business skills to make sure that people have the mindset and the skillset to achieve wealth. Anyway, enough about that, the point was that I was attending the event to focus on my business to grow it to the next level and I really believe that when we decide something ...

Trust and Accountability – signs of a good business

Posted by:

Do you ever wonder what drives some people? What is their motivation? I am pretty clear that my incredible life in property investment really gives me all the incentive I could ever want. It drives me and it satisfies me. An ideal combination. However, I like to think that I rule it, it does not rule me – that’s the difference between a balanced life and a job with no boss!

That is the ...

Be careful what you ask for – you might not want it

Posted by:

Isn’t it interesting how people react to the way you present yourself to them? Consider how a great actor can be a very pleasant, positive character in one film and yet ooze menace and hostility in another. In other words, we take people as they present themselves to us. It’s quite natural really…

You may know that I travel to Egypt to go scuba diving quite regularly. Normally, I am a property investment sourcer in the UK, but this is how ...

What good customer service will achieve

Posted by:

I always feel a build-up of excitement at the prospect of flying somewhere for a break. I make my living in property investment and I really feel that it is in my blood, but, even I need a break from time to time! As the holiday approaches, anticipation builds up and, with that, the hope that the flight will be enjoyable.

However, all too often, small things can make a journey unpleasant; a ...

How do you get dressed in the morning

Posted by:

Sometimes, the most mundane occurrences can set you off on a learning curve. Even though I am primarily a property investor, I have learned that sound yet flexible business systems are vital to cope with changing circumstances. Systems must be adaptable, if they are not, then an unforeseen problem may completely defeat you, and we all know opportunities spring from the creative thinking that a challenge can initiate.

At the weekend I laid my first (and last) ever new patio. Although ...

Form an orderly queue ladies…

Posted by:

You know how it is when you get to any big event. You arrive and find yourself stuck in a human equivalent of a herd of sheep – maybe a shoal of fish would be a better analogy in the circumstances, being directed from one queue to another when you suddenly realise that you can’t remain immune from one basic human need. If you’re feeling lost and wondering what on earth I am wittering on about, it boils down to ...

Enough with the sunny weather !!

Posted by:

After 10 days of hard labour (and I don’t mean just planting pansies or weeding – I mean hard labour shifting 12 tonne of soil, railway sleepers, bricks, pots, and rubble by hand and with a “digger”) I know two things;

 

  • first I am not cut out for hard labour more a director – organiser than a labourer – more property investor than property developer;
  • second that only my eyelids don’t hurt!!!
