Who am I? I sometimes ask myself that question and what do I share from a life that has covered a few decades! & various careers!
So a pot shot: The last two decades I have worked with Leadership and Management teams in the Public and Private sectors & more recently with Entrepreneurs building their own business & consistently with people who want to change their lives. I was awarded a prize by the last Partnership I worked with for being Inspirational and a role model – a brilliant moment for my memories & a complete surprise.
In July 2011 I made the decision to do something different and being one who enjoys change & had a credit card! I set of on a journey which has included Forex Trading, Internet Marketing, Multi-Level Marketing finally resting with Property Investing which compliments my professional Mentoring, Coaching & Training to create my own Financial Freedom, my pension wasn’t enough by any stretch & I am not ‘there’ yet but closer to it.
The Property journey to date has been exciting and rewarding resulting in me publishing an article in YPN, running a Property Meet, appearing on SKY, speaking from stage, being part of a Crowdfunding bid plus lots more including writing a book (in the process) & setting up a Business Talks & Workshops Meet in London & an online Property Education Business – sounds unbelievable when I write it down & I am just normal I left the education system with no qualifications – not one!
Property wise, I love it & launched myself into HMOs, Lease Options & Refurbs to Flip with a JV partner – so not the easiest or preferred route by the old school, so I was told, but it cash flows nicely. I am now anything HMO including managing for others, R2R & am looking for my next something which will probably be a development.
My true belief is that “In the day of ‘now’ those who think that the skills of ‘yesteryear’ will suffice will find out differently” all of us, including me, need to continuously develop to keep up in a fast changing world or we will fade by the wayside. It has never been so important to change and adopt new ways of, not only working but thinking and behaving as well.
