That feeling when you login to your online banking and see a nice lump sum of money staring right back at you...
You never forget your first! (My Wife thought I was joking!)
My first fee was around £17,000 and this is how I did it…
I sourced a property via contacts I had built up, I then used my network to tap into (overseas investors) and I found a buyer within a day, the investor paid a reservation fee over and then proceeded to buy the property. When it exchanged and completed, my fee was transferred to my account.
How long did this take in total? Around 12 weeks (If I remember correctly)
How many hours of work were involved? Probably all together about 8 to 10 hours of work.
So that’s approximately £1,700 per hour – not a bad first deal, eh?
You have probably seen posts about earning daft sums of money from property before, am I right? Well this is a little different, because I'm going to share the story of what it was really like...
You might be thinking it sounds really easy!
I can tell you right now it was 100% definitely not even close to being easy!
The buyers were difficult to handle, constantly changing their minds, requesting more and more information, backing out, coming back to the table, agreeing the price, only to try and re-negotiate over something silly.
The truth is… What should have taken 2 weeks took 5 times longer! It was stressful beyond belief, it was a roller-coaster of emotions, I had sleepless nights became a pain to live with. I even gave up and thought it’s not worth it at one point! This was not easy and not as simple as I thought it would be.
Did I learn anything from the process? 100% yes! It was a huge learning curve, setting up the sale, dealing with time zone hurdles, countless problems to solve along the way. I honestly felt like I solved one problem and then another one would pop up. It was relentless at times.
Would I do it again? Yes! In fact I did it again hundreds of times.
Within a few years, I had completed many more similar deals and eventually... I went on to co-found and launch the UK’s first ever property sourcing franchise. It was me, my Wife and two other guys, to start with and a year later, we were the biggest sourcing network in the country.
We grew to over 50+ offices all over the UK. We then launched a property backed peer to peer investment platform. That has since gone on to fund tens of millions of pounds worth of property projects.
Property has been very varied for me... there is no overnight success, in this game!
I started out as an accidental landlord, doing my own renovations, and eventually becoming an agent. I learned all about creative strategies like sourcing, rent to rent, lease options etc.
I even advised other estate agency franchises on how they could grow and add more income streams to their business model.
In 2019, I stepped away from the company I co-founded and sold my shareholding. Working in a business and not on it just did’nt float my boat anymore. After a family holiday, I decided a new path was best for many different reasons.
My new path became obvious after taking some time out... The biggest problem with property training in the UK was... the cost was often ridiculous! Too many people out there selling property courses and fleecing people with misleading marketing.
These people make property sound really easy; they sell the financial freedom dream and dangle a course at you, telling you it’s the answer. Wrong!
There had to be another way for people to get started in property without all the smoke and mirrors and stupidly expensive courses.
So what did we do?
Since we launched in early 2019, we have grown from zero to over 500+ people that have bought our online training on deal sourcing and rent to rent among other things.
Then in August 2020, I launched a mentoring programme due to people constantly asking me to help them.
If I'm honest I really wasn't sure, but I love the connection of working with people 1 to 1 and sharing my own knowledge and experience. It’s great to be a small-part of so many people’s property business.
I love dissecting deals, helping people move forward and really seeing them grow month to month.
If property interests you, and you want to learn more about how we can help you… read on >
We can give you real one to one support each month. Imagine being able to bounce ideas off me, have me look at the numbers with you on prospective deals, have me to answer your property related questions every day. If that's what you need then our Property BaseCamp programme is right for you.
Each time I open up access to my mentoring I raise the price a little more and there is a very good reason... we are continually adding new content to our training and so we are offering more and more value. Also nobody else in the UK will give you lifetime access to training online and lifetime access to one to one support!
I know a big training company in the UK is offering access to a course and access to a support group for 12 months for a whopping £9k plus and they are charging nearly £2k for leaflet templates! Really!!!!
It's insanity on another scale and that's why we exist. People can get training and support for a one off low fee.
