Ask Me Anything: How to Raise Money, LTD vs Personal & Clubhouse
In today’s episode, Kevin gives an update on what he’s been up to recently, current opportunities and hosts a question and answer session to help members of the community with any of their property challenges. He advises listeners on various ways of raising money for their property investing with in depth details of the different options, strategies to use during Covid-19 and tips on rent to own, rent to rent and how to start building a ‘power team’. KEY TAKEAWAYS A lot of people are saying that property in London could now be dropping in price, this hasn’t been the case for many years. Consider doing the opposite of what the masses are doing and perhaps think of investing in this location.   In terms of raising money for property investments, there are various ways of doing this and there’s never been a better time with interest rates being so low. Reach out to people, let them know you’re in the property business. Joint ventures, banks, private finance and bridging loans are all ways of raising money. Bridging is the most expensive way of raising funds, more suitable for commercial properties and HMO’s and private funding is probably the best way as there are no upfront costs.   There is a huge demand for rent to own currently and there are big benefits to this. As a landlord you have no maintenance, no management costs and you’re helping someone become a home owner. It can work in any part of the country and is the most hands free strategy, which can be done remotely.     Don’t state the rent and terms for a rent to own when advertising. Try and be deliberately vague. A lot of potential applicants will just read the ‘rent’ part of an advert or won’t be eligible, for example if they can’t afford it or are on universal credit, but this is still a great way of building up your tenant database.   Covid shouldn’t be a reason to alter your plans and strategies. The world and business is still moving forward. There is still a housing shortage and people still need homes. One thing you can alter slightly is changing from guaranteed rent to offering landlords profit share agreements. It’s risky offering guaranteed rent without knowing when the pandemic will end and when furlough will end. Remember to market in the right places and in multiple places.   Depending on your personal circumstances, you’re probably better putting everything into a limited company rather than paying personal tax. You’ll have limited liability and it’s a better strategy long term as you can pass shares on, sell shares etc.  However, the best advice is to get yourself a property tax accountant.   If you’re trying to build a ‘Power Team’ let people know where you’re based and what you’re looking for and start to build your team around that area. Remember to use your name, property is a people business.   If you’re a young person trying to get into property with no funds or income, try to get a job working for somebody who is already in the property business. Don’t do the obvious thing and get a job in a letting or estate agent, most don’t buy property and they won’t teach you how to become an investor.   BEST MOMENTS ‘If the taxi driver in New York says to you ‘which stocks to buy’ then you need to get out of that stock immediately because if the man on the street knows what stock to buy, you’re too late to the show’ ‘Observe the masses, do the opposite’ ‘Property is a people business’ ‘You’re not going to learn about property working in an Estate Agent’   SUBSCRIBE TO THE A NEW INVESTMENT SERIES Episode One: How to Perfectly Invest £10,000 | The Best Stocks | Property | Gold & Classic Cars Watch Live On The Progressive Property YouTube Channel Every Monday At 7 PM Listen To Audio Recordings On The Money Podcast   ABOUT THE HOST Kevin McDonnell is a Speaker, Author, Mentor & Professional Property Investor.

Learn These Rich Habits of Successful People | Rich Habits, Poor Habits Podcast, Part 1 with Tom Corley
Have you ever wondered how certain people become so rich and successful? Well, if you’ve been listening to my podcast or reading my blogs and my books, you’d know that rich people don’t become rich by luck or by accident. Becoming rich requires hard work, dedication, and a certain set of habits. We are what we repeatedly do. That means excellence isn’t an act, it’s a habit. My friend Tom Corley spent five years studying millionaires and gathering insights that become the basis of his blogs and books, including the book we co-authored: Rich Habits, Poor Habits. He found that people who became wealthy practiced certain habits, and that’s what we’re going to discuss today. Since there are so many habits, we’re going to break this into a two-part series, and today we’re going to start with the first group of habits that the rich do that differentiate them from the average person. Rich Habits Of course, not all rich people are successful, and not all successful people are rich; but remember I was much younger and more naïve then and wanted it all. So I tried to understand why some people were rich while others kept struggling financially. Over the years I attended many seminars, paid mentors, and read as many books as I could on the topic of success. I modelled successful people and eventually grew successful myself. It wasn’t easy, I’ve had my challenges in life (mostly self-inflicted) and I’ve hit rock-bottom, but I got up again, learned from my mistakes, and moved forward. And over the years I’ve mentored more than 3,000 successful (and some not so successful) investors, business people, and entrepreneurs. In fact, a by-product of this is our top-selling book – Rich habits Poor Habits In it, Tom Corley and I explain… Being rich has little to do with the money itself Instead, it has a lot to do with how you think about money. So if you want to become rich, one of the first steps is to know how the wealthy think about money differently than you do and to start thinking like them. The next step is to take action and to let the action become natural by thinking the way wealthy people think. We’ve found rich people share similar habits. While we explain this in some detail in our book, today I’d like to briefly share… The first of the 21 Success Habits of The Rich …. * The average person thinks about spending their money, while the rich think about how to invest their money. * The average person worries about running out of money while the rich think about how to use their money to make more money. * Most people believe hard work makes you rich, while the rich know that leverage creates wealth. * Successful people don’t procrastinate. They don’t spend their life waiting for the ‘right time’ or waiting until they know it all or have figured everything out. * The average person believes having a job gives them security. The rich know there’s no such thing as “job security.” * Most people want to be rich. The rich are committed to being rich. (They are very different things.) * When things go wrong, the rich find a lesson, while others only see a problem. * The average Australian sets their financial expectation low, so they’re never disappointed. On the other hand, the rich set their financial expectations high so they’re always excited. * Successful people take calculated risks – financial, emotional, professional, psychological. But once they’ve built their wealth, they take fewer risks. * The rich consciously and methodically create their own success, while others hope success will find them. * The rich look for and find opportunities where others see obstacles. * The average person believes life happens to them. They are a passenger, while the Rich believe that they create their own destiny. They are the pilot of their lives. Successful people align themselves with like-minded people. They understand the importance of being part of a team. They create win-win relationships.

But it is your fault if you die poor.” – Michael Yardney “It depends what your focus is as to what you see.” – Michael Yardney “2020 taught us the importance of that. How many people who had multiple income streams – such as you, such as me – still had a really good year, while those who were dependent on one income stream, unfortunately, found that dried up.” – Michael Yardney PLEASE LEAVE US A REVIEW Reviews are hugely important to me because they help new people discover this podcast.

How to Staff Up Fast, With Low Risk/Cost
So many entrepreneurs become daunted when they think of hiring staff and the expense that comes with it. Join Rob today as he explains how you can staff up quickly, with very little expenditure so you don’t have to do all the work yourself! Discover how referrals from friends, family and existing team members can help keep your costs low, how to ensure your staff can make you double (or triple!) their salary and how to manage their income generating tasks well. KEY TAKEAWAYS   Referrals from existing team members, friends or family are brilliant for finding staff at a low cost as there is an element of trust. You can acquire and hire a staff member for free if there are no recruitment fees.   Staff members are always working 30 days in arrears. If you manage them well on the income generating tasks. You can get them to earn their salary before actually paying their salary. As long as you can get them to make more than what they cost you, then ‘gross’ you have got them for free.   Whilst the initial cost of hiring staff may seem daunting, remember the salary you pay them over the next year is split into twelve instalments. As long as they are managed well, targeted well, have good minimum standards of performance and have a clear vision for their role they should be able to earn double or triple their salary.   Incentivise your ‘non income generating’ staff to save you and your business money by offering them a percentage of the money they save. Have them go through the expenses regularly and the savings they make could end up paying their salary.   Make sure you have always got a percentage of your staff that are income generating. Generally as the company grows, the percentage of income generating staff is lower because you will hire admin staff to manage all the work you have coming in.   Track your KPI’s, this is your percentage of staff that are revenue generating. It is wise to also track revenue per staff member too. If your revenue per staff member gets near or below their salary, you are making no money. If your revenue is 2-10 times their salary, then you are making a large profit.   BEST MOMENTS “You are going to have a breakthrough, threshold year.” “I like staff members to generate between two and three times their salary.” “When you save £1 you save the whole £1. When you make £1, you probably only make 15p in that £1.” “When I write a job description I make it really inspiring.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES   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.

337: Rosie and Allan Charles on breaking property rules, replacing income and the power of single-lets
Rosie and Allan Charles of Arch Investments – I'll be totally honest, I've spent the past two years thinking of them as Ark investments every time I see them on social media, thinking it was some abbreviation for architecture. But, of course, after asking the question I now know that it stands for Allan & Rosie Charles – but at least now you'll remember to look for them next time you're on Instagram. Anyway, getting back to what this phenomenal couple has achieved in a few short years… They started investing by breaking all the rules – sourcing deals hours away from home and focussing on the humble single let instead of being distracted by shiny objects and new-fangled strategies. It's clearly worked for them, replacing Rosie's income and allowing her to step into property full time whilst Allan focuses on the strategy for the business and making sure that all of his toys were constantly being tossed from his pram. You'll hear more in today's interview about how they've built a successful portfolio through consistent efforts and constantly putting themselves in challenging situations that they were forced to find solutions to, as well as the numbers behind their best and worst deals, how they split the responsibility of their business, and why investing in education gave them the accountability they needed to succeed. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - Follow us on Instagram - Access our free resources -
