    Learn some lessons from these 15 intelligent Richard Branson quotes with Mark Creedon | Build a Business, Not a Job Podcast

    Inspirational quotes trigger something within us when we hear them and read them.
    They activate our emotions and sometimes when they resonate with us, they increase our pulse and get our creative or critical thinking juices flowing
    That’s one of the reasons why I often share quotes from already very successful entrepreneurs with Mark Creedon, founder of Business Accelerator Mastermind in our monthly Build a Business Not a Job podcast.
    Today will be discussing some quotes from Richard Branson.
    Even if you’re not a Richard Branson fan, and even if you’re not in business or professional practice, today’s show will be for you because I believe there are some great benefits you can reap by listening to inspirational quotes.
    Maybe when you hear Mark and I dissect some of Richard Branson’s quotes you’ll get a different or better angle on a particular subject.
    Maybe you’ll get an insight into the thoughts and teachings of somebody a little wiser
    Maybe won’t learn something new but the repletion of words will remind you of something you already know and hopefully it will trigger something within you to get you back on track or further down the track.
    Even if you’re not a fan of quotes I hope you enjoy today’s show because if you want to become more successful in life whether it’s in business, entrepreneurship, investing or just simply in your relationships.
    15 intelligent Richard Branson quotes
    Richard Branson needs no introduction; he is the daredevil entrepreneur who is best known as the founder of Virgin Group.
    If you’re looking for inspiration, it’s interesting to know that in school, Branson struggled with dyslexia and couldn’t really adapt, so at 16 he decided to drop-out of school and start a youth culture magazine called “Student”. The magazine was the starting point for a humble music store called Virgin Records.
    Today Branson has a net worth of over $4.9 Billion and having more than 400 companies, he is one of the most highly respected CEOs in the world.
    “Screw it let's do it.” Instead of waiting for the perfect moment, just get started and get it done.
    “There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work and follow your passions in a way that serves the world and you.” If you’re not passionate about your work, maybe it’s time to think about making a change.
    “When you're first thinking through an idea, it's important not to get bogged down in complexity. Thinking simply and clearly, it is hard to do.” If you wait until every possible detail is covered, you’ll never get around to doing it.
    “If you don't succeed at first, there is no need for the F word (failure). Pick yourself up and try, try again.” Failure is part of the process. Learn from it and move on.
    “You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.” “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” If you’re not prepared and you don’t have the right mindset, luck will pass you by.
    “Don't become a slave to technology – manage your phone, don't let it manage you.” It’s fine to use and enjoy technology, just don’t let it take over.
    “Chance favours the prepared mind. The more you practice, the luckier you become.” The more time you spend focusing on what you want to achieve and practicing the skills you need, the more opportunities will find you.
    “Life is a hell of a lot more fun if you say yes rather than no.” Don’t let negativity or negative people limit you.
    “A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.” You’ll attract more clients, customers, and opportunities if you’re enjoying yourself.
     “I have always believed that the way you treat your employees is the way they will treat your customers, and that people flourish wh

    The Shape of Things to Come with Simon Kuestenmacher

    The Shape of Things to Come with Simon Kuestenmacher

    How will the next five years unfold?
    That’s the question everyone is asking, isn’t it?
    What’s going to happen to my life, my health, my job or my business?
    And for many people listening to this podcast, they’re wondering what’s going to happen to our property markets and the value of my home and my investment properties.
    Of course, nobody knows for sure, the world seems to be in a state of chaos.
    While some of the parts of the world are experiencing a second wave of coronavirus, other poor parts of the world are experiencing extreme first wave. Add to this the state of flux of Australia’s trade relationships, the world’s geopolitical problems, and we are living in interesting times – aren’t we?
    But amongst this chaos in tune, there are some things that can be said about the next five years, some emerging trends, behaviours and opportunities that will flow from the various undulation is in our Australian demographic landscape and that’s what I’d like to talk about today with Simon Kuestenmacher.
    One of the themes of our regular discussions tends to be how demographics drive our markets – not just the property markets but business as well.
    Let’s start with the elephant in the room – clearly, we are going to have less immigration in the short-term.
    Immigration will slow in the short-term We’ll have fewer students, fewer tourists and fewer backpackers As soon as practical, the government will open the gates and encourage immigration as a way of increasing our GDP We shouldn’t forget that almost half of Australia’s population growth comes from natural increase, and an even bigger driver of demand are emerging trends, behaviours and opportunities flow from the various undulations in the demographic landscape.
    A breakdown of the different demographic groups:
    Kids – birth to late teens Learning – entering university, moving out of the parental home, becoming an adult Partnering – may stay in the inner-city (near jobs) with a partner Building – having children with a partner, real estate needs increase, need 3-4 bedrooms Easing – When you’re 55-64, in the later stages of a career, may be taking more time off Retiring – Even if they aren’t all retired, they have less of an influence on the workforce. Spending more time with grandchildren. Staying in home as long as they can. Aging – 80+ cohort, needs accessible property, needs to be located near medical facilities Which of these groups are going to change significantly and place an increasing demand on our resources?
    Teenagers - schools, sporting facilities 40 somethings – family, accommodation Retirees Because of their sheer size and stage in the life cycle, no generation will shape Australia more during the 2020s than millennials.
    Millennials were born between 1982 and 1999. This makes them aged 21 to 38, and they will be 31 to 48 by 2030. Millennials perfected the art of procrastination as they popularised the gap year, forgot to move out of the parental home, pursued education for much longer, settled for a partner much later in life, and pushed out buying their first home and birth of their first child into their mid-30s. Throughout the 2020s, this generation of procrastinators will follow in the footsteps of every generation before them and enter the family-formation and home-buying stage. As life pushes you forward, preferences change. Throw a newborn into the mix and even the hippest inner-city couple gives in and follows the suburban sirens Throughout the 2020s, millennials will leave their centrally locat­ed one or two-bedroom apartments and migrate to the suburbs or even regional centres in search of more bedrooms. They want an additional bedroom or two to bring up the kids and to work from home occasionally. How are millennials going to reshape suburbia?
    Due to COVID-19, reshaping will be more int

    10 Things Investors Must Understand Before Investing in Brisbane with Brett Warren

    10 Things Investors Must Understand Before Investing in Brisbane with Brett Warren

    Are you interested in getting involved in the Brisbane property market? If so, today’s episode is just for you.
    But even if you aren’t interested in investing in the Brisbane property market yourself, considering that each state and city has its own nuances, the message that you’re going to hear from Brett Warren today will be useful to change and translate to the area where you want to invest.
    10 things you must know before investing in Brisbane
    Where are the jobs being created? Demand will be stronger closer to major employment hubs and right now in Brisbane, there are 50,000 jobs being created between the CBD and the Airport. So, in Brisbane, stick to the 10km ring to encompass the CBD, Hospitals, and the Airport precincts. Suburbs within a school catchment will continue to attract a premium – 1) not all schools are equal and 2) do not just assume buying in a suburb gives you access to that school. Missing the catchment by a single house or street could mean a difference of $50,000, so it pays to get it right! So, paying slightly more to get into the right catchment will greatly benefit future growth. People are not wanting to move further out and away from the City – While accommodation is smaller, there needs to be more happening outdoors, think lifestyle and entertainment precincts, green space, and convenience. Walkscore can be an invaluable tool for this. Public Transport a MUST - Our roads will get busier – There is probably an 80/20 rule here in Brisbane for public transport. Inside the 10km ring there is an 80% chance of having some form of public transport, that drops to as low as 20% when you start getting out past the 15km to 20km ring. Moving forward, identifying a location close to a bus, train, or even ferry, will be critical as commute times balloon! Majority of new infrastructure projects are within 5km of the CBD – Brisbane is not as mature as Melbourne or Sydney. That maturity is maybe 10 or 15 years away. Flooding and Stormwater are common – There have been several major floods over the last century and while they generally only come along every 20 – 30 years, it still must be on your radar. Even more common though are Brisbane’s storms and stormwater runoff – overland flow. We may buy in most suburbs, but not in all parts of a suburb – To get wealth-producing levels of return, you need to not only buy in the best suburbs but in the best pockets of those suburbs Zoning is becoming critically important – You can’t necessarily pull down a house that would be past its use-by date in another city, and the agent won’t necessarily tell you that. Important to stick to areas that are already designed right The Rich will get richer over the next decade Brisbane is not Melbourne or Sydney – property outside will 10km will not catch up.

    What You Must Understand About How the Rules of Money Have Changed with Pete Wargent

    What You Must Understand About How the Rules of Money Have Changed with Pete Wargent

    Money doesn’t care about what color, race, or class you are.
    It doesn’t care what your parents did or who you think you are. It doesn’t discriminate.
    And you have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else to make as much of it as you want.
    But the majority of Australians will never be financially independent. On the other hand, a small group of Australian investors and business owners are becoming very wealthy.
    Why is that?
    Most people complain they don’t have enough money. But the reality is that most people just don’t understand the rules of money.
    Today, I’m going to have a chat with Pete Wargent about how the rules of money have changed in this new era.
    3 ways in which the rules of money have changed.
    Lower interest rates
    Interest rates will be stuck at the effective lower bound for years to come.
    Yields are also being pushed down further out along the curve, with the 3-year bond yield being a particularly important funding benchmark in Australia, so mortgage rates are also falling to the lowest level in history.
    Central banks and governments want you to go out and spend, invest, and build businesses, and incentives will be put in place for you to do so.
    Cash is dead
     The cash economy was dying before 2020, but the shutdown effectively sounded the death knell for cash as a means of payment and exchange.
    The latest usage data showed that retail spend on credit cards is now actually higher year-on-year, and this in spite of the shutdown. Increasingly we pay for goods using plastic rather than physical currency in the form of notes or coins.
    This trend was well underway before 2020, but the shutdown has accelerated the death of the cash economy.
    Overcoming mental obstacles about money
    More than ever before, it’s important to be mindful and attentive towards your money, but it’s also critical to remove the silent mental obstacles towards growing your wealth and bank balance.
    As alluded to above, central banks are effectively creating new money at an unprecedented rate.
    With the growth of social media and online commentary, it’s become abundantly clear that many infer you can somehow only have more and become more at the expense or to the detriment of others.
    To be blunt if that’s your world-view, and how you view money and self-development, you’ll never sustainably be able to have more wealth.
    Money is, after all, inanimate; it does not and cannot care what you think of it.

    It’s important to understand these things that never change in a world that never stops changing + Estate planning with Ken Raiss

    It’s important to understand these things that never change in a world that never stops changing + Estate planning with Ken Raiss

    What will life be like when the COVID-19 crisis passes? What aspects will stay with us, and what will disappear?
    We’ve been thrust into a moment of rapid change, but most of us don’t like change. It makes us feel uncomfortable.
    We like a level of certainty about our future, health, and jobs, as well about the worlds of finance and property that most of us are interested in.
    But there are lessons in history that can provide us with valuable insights. In today’s episode, we’ll talk about some of the things that never change in a world that never stops changing.
    Successful investors and businesspeople need to be prepared for change but also understand the things that don’t change.
    So, by the end of today’s show, you’ll come out with some ideas about how to get some more certainty in these uncertain times.
    I’m also going to share a mindset moment from one of my mentors and have a chat with Ken Raiss about estate planning.
    Some things that never change in a world that never stops changing
    The things that never change are the most important things to pay attention to.
    However, change gets the most attention because it’s exciting, it’s surprising, it’s something that the media can comment on.
    You see…predicting the future is hard. Very few can do it.
    On the other hand, understanding what stays the same is very useful.
    Particularly in challenging times like we’re currently experiencing.
    Of course, I still have no idea what’s going to happen in the future, but I’m a little less surprised whatever does happen if I have a handful of assumptions that I can put my faith into to guide me moving forward.
    So, let’s look at some things that never change in a world that never stops changing.
    More people wake up every morning wanting to solve problems than wake up looking to cause harm. I’m an optimist and have faith in society, but I recognize that those with a negative message get more airplay in the media and incite negative sentiment in our community.
    Fact is… in life you get whatever you expect to get. The only question is, what do you want?
    If we were not optimistic, none of us would bother setting up a business, employing people, taking risks, or investing in property.
    If we were totally realistic about how often people fail, how often things go wrong, how most property investors never build a substantial property portfolio, we would never even bother getting started.
    Your outside world is a reflection of what’s happening inside your mind.
    So, feed it with positive, optimistic thoughts.
    The world breaks about once a decade. This is an interesting expression I learned from columnist Morgan Housel of the Collaborative Fund.
    But it’s true and there seem to be very few exceptions to this.

    There is a major disruption every decade or so. It could be an economic, political, military, or social issue.
    The bad news is never as bad as it sounds How many times does the end of the world as we know it need to arrive before we realise that it’s not the end of the world as we know it?
    Of course, those with a long-term perspective, who have lived through a number of economic shocks and property cycles, tend not to get as shocked when major events like we’re now experiencing hit us.
    However, those who have not experienced these types of shocks tend to worry more and imagine the worst because they have no perspective to rely on.
    This too shall pass Nothing too good or too bad stays that way forever.
    I’ve found these types of major upheavals are not as scary if you have the underlying belief that they’ll keep happening but that in the long term they don’t prevent the long-term growth of our economy and our property markets.
    History doesn’t really repeat itself. We’ve all heard it before - “History repeats itself!”
    It’s an inane statement that seems so wise

    Success Boosting Body Language Tricks with Allan Pease

    Success Boosting Body Language Tricks with Allan Pease

    You’re probably here because you’re interested in property investment or money. But if you think about it, underlying that is success.
    You’re probably looking for more success in all areas of your life, and success depends on your ability to influence and communicate. That’s what we’re going to be talking about today.
    In today’s episode, I’m going to be talking with a very successful person Allan Pease, about the importance of body language.
    Body language is an important part of communication because so much communication happens in a nonverbal way.
    Allan also has a lot to say about success, and he has some thoughts on who will win the American presidential election based on the candidates’ language.
    The Beliefs that Guide Successful People
    Successful people believe in themselves. They know if they don’t believe in themselves, no one else will
    Successful people believe they’re in charge of their own life. They believe they’re the pilots of their own lives, not just a passenger. Believing you’re responsible for what you make of a situation is empowering.
    Successful people believe that there are opportunities everywhere. Because they look for opportunities, they find them.
    Successful people believe in doing things that no one else will. They take risks and are willing to try things that others won’t. They know if they want to be different, they have to do different things.
    Successful people believe that execution is critical. The power is not in the information, it’s in the action you take.
    Successful people believe in winning through hard work. Work comes first and the payoff comes later.
    Successful people believe in giving back. Giving back keeps successful people grounded, humble, and in touch with reality.
    Highlights from my conversation with Allan Pease
    Words only make up a small amount of communication. It’s your intonation, how you say things, and how your body is responding You use a different part of the brain for first impressions than for subsequent impressions People don’t buy from someone they don’t trust Body language tricks for Zoom calls You can do a few things on video calls that you can’t do in person, like staring “Just be natural” can be bad advice in a lot of cases It’s a good idea to film yourself so that you can see how you look to others The differences between how men and women communicate How deciding what you want to do helps you see how to do it Why people should listen to Allan’s seminar Who’s going to win the American presidential election Links and Resources:
