Blackfriars pin host
Meet your pin host
I now own and run Flex Property Lead Generation Ltd (www.flexleadgeneration.co.uk), a fully managed lead generation service for investors wanting to generate off-market property leads.Alongside my lead generation business, I also actively invest in HMOs and along with my husband own a window cleaning company in Hertfordshire and Essex.
My husband and I are serial entrepreneurs and prior to property have been involved in a few start-ups including developing new food products, delivering sushi to offices in London and setting up an event catering company. It was only when I first attended the Blackfriars pin meeting in 2011 and started to educate myself about property investing that we realised how easy property was to generate passive cashflow compared to the other businesses that we had set up. From then on we were hooked.
We bought our first investment property in 2012 and continued to acquire property from then on. From 2012, we operated a serviced accommodation business in London from the properties that we had acquired in the capital and over the following four years, processed over 500 individual bookings from all over the world. Since 2011, we have amassed experience in single lets, HMOs, serviced accommodation, refurbs and lead generation. Please come and have a chat if you think I may be able to help you in any way.
What pin has done for me:
After having children, I realised that my London based career was not going to give me the family life that my husband and I wanted to build. From our existing portfolio, we knew that property could create the lifestyle that we wanted. So, in 2018 I started The Property Mastermind programme. It was a life changing year where I learnt a full range of strategies and I entered into and remain in a community of successful property investors who help me on my property journey every day.
I strongly believe in the power of personal development and maintaining a growth mindset to help you achieve amazing things. I constantly find myself inspired by the excellent speakers and attendees who come to the pin meetings. Having been a regular attendee at pin meetings, I’m proud to call many fellow attendees my friends and colleagues who I have done business with.
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. Whatever reason that is inspiring you to come, we extend to you a huge warm welcome. Even if you feel that a speaker is not entirely relevant to you in your property journey, I still encourage you to come. I have felt the same in the past but still attended. By the time I left the event I felt re-motivated and was glad to have gone. Sometimes it was due to the little nugget I had discovered and other times for a conversation that had unlocked something for me.
