48 min

More than 4 million mortgage, credit card and loan payments have been deferred since the pandemic began, and though most have started repaying what they owe, there are still hundreds of thousands of people who could find things even harder after 31st October.

In this episode, I'm joined by Sara Williams from the Debt Camel blog to talk through what you need to be doing if you've had a payment holiday, and what to do when your's ends.

Is there still time to go bargain hunting for investments?
'Be greedy when others are fearful.' Warren Buffett's investment adage was tested this year when the coronavirus crash hit and sent stock markets tumbling in late February and early March. But as nations went into lockdown, economies nosedived and draconian measures surpassing most seen in living memory were introduced, it was hard for most investors to get up too much of an appetite, however many times they may have heard that line. There seemed to be no way that markets would recover for some time and the most likely course was down.  Then the rebound came, but still it all looked to good to be true - as if it was just fools and their money being parted in a FOMO rally. Except, it turned out to have legs. The world's dominant stock market, the US, has been on a tear since late March and many other countries have bounced back too. So, has the opportunity to go bargain hunting passed? Could our own humble stock market be one of the last places left where you can do it? Are we missing a trick and ignoring the fact the world has changed and there is no point talking about cheap value investments, just get on the tech train? On this week's podcast, Georgie Frost and Simon Lambert discuss investing bargains: what that means and whether there are any left? Also, while the stock market has been on the rise, the economy has been taking another lockdown beating. Chancellor Rishi Sunak updated us this week on the state of the UK economy, so how bad was the news? Also this week, NS&I and Marcus cut rates, so what can savers do now, and finally, is triple glazing worth splashing out on?

Cash is Outdated: NEW Forms of Currency
Most people think that you need cash to start and grow your business. WRONG, there are many things far more important than cash and in today’s episode of The Money podcast, Rob shares with you 7 key fundamentals for building a sustainable business without focusing simply on cash. Listen in and learn the true value of your follows and fans, why information is now a commodity worth more than money and how technological and digital opportunities are changing the way we do business, reduce friction and better serve our customers and clients.   New Book Launch - 3rd December 2020 ‘Reinvent Yourself’ With Gerald Ratner   Check out Rob’s supporter Facebook programme for more exclusive updates, lessons and courses on entrepreneurship, business, mindset, money and more. bit.ly/Robsupporter   KEY TAKEAWAYS   Your follows fans and subscribers are much more of a currency to your business than money. In theory, each subscriber, opt-in or follower is worth a minimum £1 per year to your business. Cash in your company comes and goes but once you’ve secured a follower, fan or subscriber you’ve got them for life.   Information is far more powerful than money. Information is now a commodity in business that you can trade, give and offer your customers, clients, followers and fans. The more information you can learn, the more information you can monetise through courses, teaching, practices and events and as a result you will become an expert and an authority.   Technology that makes our lives faster, easier, better and more integrated is far more valuable than money. The tech available to your business to optimise, systemise and revolutionise is only growing exponentially and bringing about more opportunities for growth.   Building your business brand, personal brand and ensuring goodwill in the mindset of your audience is worth much more to your business than money. If you can be in the mind space of your customers when they think about a product or service in your niche then you will grow your business rapidly. Trust with your audience and your customers is the greatest currency to have in business. Money loves and follows trust and if you can build up trust in all areas of business by servicing your customers and solving problems you will see acquire more partnerships, sponsorships and collaborations.     BEST MOMENTS   “Most people think that you need money to make money” “There are many more assets to make cash that cash” “We’re moving towards a cashless society” “Much of my revenue comes from my books and my content. It comes from the content I produce.” “Where you can use technology to remove friction you will speed up the payment process for your customers” “Technology mixed with digital is the future and you need to embrace it.” “A trust or reputation can take 10+ years to build”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter MONEY BOOK   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

ASK264: Does rental income or capital growth give the biggest gains? PLUS: What’s the minimum yield I should accept?
We’ve got another two great property questions on Ask Rob & Rob this week. The first question this week is from Argent. Argent wants to know where property investors can make the biggest gains. He knows Rob & Rob tend to focus on capital growth, but he thinks it’s more the income that gives the biggest gain, as this is the cash that hits your bank account each month.  Listen as Rob D takes us on a mini history lesson while drawing on his own personal experience. Yes, you need to have a bit of faith for capital growth but today Rob explains why both are equally as important.  You can also deliberately tilt your portfolio in the favour of one or the other. How? Listen to find out.  The second question comes from Daniel. Daniel is a long-time Property Podcast listener and he’s looking to get his first property.  He’d been focusing on the ‘ideal yields’ of between 8-10% but when he’s running the numbers, he’s finding the best he can get is 6% or lower. He’s wondering if he bought at 6% whether it’d be a huge mistake.  Rob B takes the lead with this one (as Daniel specifically used Liverpool as an example). Listen as he talks Daniel through what to look for in his next deal and how it’d affect yields. He also explains how to focus on location and consider the pros and cons of desirable vs less desirable places.  The difference of an extra % or two on the yield could be minimal in the short-term but a winner in the long-term. Do you have a buy to let or property investment related question for Rob & Rob? You could feature on the next episode by giving us a call on 013 808 00035 and leaving a message with your name and question (normal UK call rates apply).    Or if you prefer, click here to leave a recording via your computer instead. The next question on Ask Rob & Rob could be yours.  Have you joined us over on the Property Hub Forum yet?

Fraud in the Direct Debit system
Money Box has found evidence of fraud in the Direct Debit system. We hear how Ursula, pictured with her son Phil, has been repeatedly targeted. But how difficult it is to protect yourself against this fraud, once criminals use leaked or stolen personal details to drain your account? Also - young people and hard up families are being priced out of rented homes by landlords asking for six months rent in advance. And a breakthrough for some parents of children with learning disabilities who haven't been able to access their child's savings once they reach 18. Two child trust fund providers, OneFamily and BMO Finance, are defying government guidance and giving parents and carers control of the money owed to their child. Normally parents are obliged to go through a long and expensive process which may cost more than the total invested for their child in the fund. We hear the latest on this good news for some families, but also look at the plight of the many more who remain stuck with the old system, as their providers hang on for new guidance from the government. Plus in the Money Box Podcast Extra – the horrific case of a student in Nottingham who was assaulted and robbed – but struggled to be set free from his housing contract to recuperate at home. We hear what students can do if they feel they have to withdraw from their student accommodation contract.

Six Principles To Add Value To Property
The property investment world is all about increasing the value of our investments at all times. In this week's show, Simon talks you through the six main principles of making sure your property's value is always on the rise.   KEY TAKEAWAYS   Purchasing a new-build, or house to which no real improvements are necessary, can be attractive, but it also limits the potential value increase, and can tie up your deposit. Reconfiguring a property means you can add more rooms to a property, which in turn adds significant value. A larger room can easily be split into two, whether upstairs or downstairs. Freehold-to-Leasehold title splitting is a remarkable strategy that can add value by taking an already-converted property, splitting its title into separate parts, selling each part for more money.   BEST MOMENTS   'This is the fastest way to grow your portfolio' 'This really is property magic' 'You are metaphorically cutting the cake up'   VALUABLE RESOURCES If you would like to join Simon for some detailed training about the Freehold to leasehold Title Split strategy then register here now:  www.titlesplittraining.co.uk  For more information on Freehold-To-Leasehold strategies go to www.titlesplittraining.co.uk   To access more free Creative Finance Strategies visit www.creativefinancetraining.co.uk    Property Magic: How to Buy Property Using Other People's Time, Money and Experience by Simon Zutshi   To find your local pin meeting visit: www.PinMeeting.co.uk and use voucher code PODCAST to attend you first meeting as Simon's guest (instead of paying the normal £20). iphone:  http://bit.ly/pinAPP1 Android https://bit.ly/pinAPP2   Register at Mindset For Property at - www.mindsetforproperty.co.uk    ABOUT THE HOST   Simon Zutshi, experienced investor, successful entrepreneur and best-selling author, is widely recognised as one of the top wealth creation strategists in the UK.
