ALSO .... Learn how to get to 1st base and then 2nd, 3rd and 4th for your own personal home run and property business destiny - Julie Hogbin
What is it that allows some people to move mountains – whilst others struggle to move molehills. Even the mountain movers started somewhere and starting is the key followed closely by continuing! Do you have a dream of taking control of your life, creating your own Pension Pot and income?
Well here is the truth we can all do it – If Julie can you can as well and that’s the truth
Come and learn from someone who didn’t give up, who kept on going in the face of fear, friendship failures, family disagreements and has got somewhere that isn’t quite where she planned to be but has kept her out of a ‘job’ and has given her the freedom to do what she wants, when she wants.
Some of it was planned, some of it fate and some of it down to networking, building relationships and sheer hard work.
If you want to know the key facts of how to start and then keep on track come and listen to Julie talk about how to keep going when the way forward becomes daunting, you don’t know what to do next or quite simply you don’t know where to start with something new or different to what you currently do.
Whether you are a ‘newbie’ or an ‘experienced’ investor – every one of us reaches a plateau and needs to learn more – strategies change, the market changes, we change, the countries economics change – the one constant is change and all of us need to be fleet of foot and agile of brain to keep ahead of the ‘game’
If you want to start, if you want to change now is as good a time as any!
