Coventry and Warwickshire May 2021 Meeting
The pain and gain of a life in property - Ankie Bell
With over 15 years experience in property, from single lets to HMO’s to commercial conversions, and more recently Holiday Lets, Ankie has learnt a lot over the years.
They built up several high value property assets in a short period of time, around 2 years. They learnt a lot, about commercial conversions, vendor finance, raising private finance, project management and running a holiday let business.
What Ankie didn’t do, and didn’t focus on was to look after herself in the process and early in 2020 her wheels fell off! She broke down and struggled to function. Over a process of many months, she had to re-learn how to prioritise, how to plan her day how to look after herself and her family first.
The lockdown period helped a lot in being forced to re-structure and re-think how she did things. To leave some things and not allow FOMO to drive my decisions.
Coming out of the pandemic, we know the business model for the holiday let business will fly once restrictions are lifted and having learnt to re-focus and re-prioritise, its there that my time and efforts are now spent.
Ankie's talk is honest about the trials she faced and the mistakes made, especially during most recent years – with the lessons learnt to pass on and share further.
ALSO.. How I bought a 48 bed Super HMO with none of my own money - Richie Miller
Richie started investing in property 5 years ago after reading ‘Property Magic’. After completing MM24 he now has experience in single lets, SA units and HMO’s. To get started he used the R2R strategy and his own money, before using other people’s money and working with JV partners. This started him on a journey of self-improvement that has allowed him to go on and buy his third property, a 48 bed Super HMO with none of his own money.
He is in the process of transitioning out of full-time employment with the Army to work on his property portfolio full time, while also helping others change their lives through personal development and property investing.
During Richie's presentation you will learn:
- What is the difference between a gamble and a calculated risk?
- Having the correct mindset is the difference between where you are now and where you want to be.
- The importance of deciding to do something different.
- How to maximise the leverage of other people’s time and skills – for when your own time is short.
- To ‘go where the air is thinner.’ Why and how he jumped from a 6 bed HMO to a 48 bed HMO.
