Blackfriars pin host
Meet your pin host
My working life journey has been great, from bricklayer to house builder, working on market stalls across central London where I learned the arts of sales and service to then embarking a 25 year career from warehouse boy to senior operations manager with reputable and national kitchen supplier. During my career I was building a BTL portfolio the traditional way of ‘save and buy’ for the long term. I do love being a landlord and owning property where I can create beautiful homes for families and tenants to be happy in, which is a big part of my values.
All good things do come to an end and my aspirations and goals changed to becoming more entrepreneurial and wanting my own business which led to my passion of the ‘3P’s’ – PEOPLE, PROPERTY, PROFIT in that order! People, come first and the win/win was high in my priorities.
In late 2020 I had an opportunity to start my own property but knew I needed property training. And, yes! I did the books, the videos and attended some free property training. I then found Simon Zutshi and the Property Investors Network, I came on one of his one day courses ‘ No excuses 2021’ which blew me away, the depth and sharing of information was awesome, I then ploughed through 6 weeks of Purchase Option training which was off the scale with information, technique and coaching and was invited to join the 3-day event, Strategy Implementation Live, where some of the stars of the show were the Masterminders showing their case studies. They all resonated with me. I then went straight onto Mastermind Accelerator and was blown away with the depth of each strategy, Mastermind full year then followed, it was a no brainer for me and one of my best decisions and actions.
My first year was great with a new build bungalow and full renovation of a terrace house sold, I started also started my own refurbishment and build out company. I also had the privilege of presenting at the 2022 Strategy Implementation Live 3-day event and was voted ‘Mastermind Spokesperson of the Year’. My 1st year on Mastermind was successful. In year 2, I had done rent to rent deals, purchased my first HMO, grew the refurbishment business and we are also now proud owners of our first Kitchen and bedroom supply company that predominantly helps trade professionals, property investors and developers.
I became a member of the Blackfriars pin team with the amazing Jo Jamison Da Silva and then went onto become team leader. 2 years on I now have this amazing opportunity of hosting the brilliant, fun filled, knowledge driven, mindset provoking that is the mighty Blackfriars pin Meeting!
The regular attendees are fantastic, the speakers are of another level and the venue is superb.
Why come to a pin Meeting?
With two different speakers each month along with the networking, you’ll build a massive amount of knowledge at Blackfriars pin Meeting that will benefit you. We are an ethical and supportive community who will help you at whatever stage of the property journey you may be. You may be working full-time and inquisitive about what property has to offer. You may be actively investing and stuck on how to progress a deal or you may have a deal that you’d like to offer out to the community.
