In this podcast episode, hosts Dan Hulbert and Amy Rowlinson interview Valter Pontes, a consultant, property investor and entrepreneur who managed to go from £0 to £2million worth of property in his first year of investing in property. Since then he has won Simon Zutshi's Property Mastermind and has been nominated as the New Property Investor of The Year 2019 by the Property Investors Awards, one of the biggest recognitions nationwide.
Valter was at university when he decided to embark on his journey in property. He strongly believes in creating solid systems around him so he can optimise his time and results. He now works with clients who range from CEOs of large tech companies to individuals looking to start on their property journey.
Valter talks about how he is continuously seeking to become the best version of himself whilst helping others along his journey. Success leaves clues and routine equals results are Valter’s adopted beliefs and when you digest a book a day, that’s advice worth paying attention to. Valter has organised his reading material into 25 different categories and always has multiple books on the go alternating between reading chapters from each of them to keep his brain actively engaged.
Valter takes his love for knowledge and learning into his recruitment process and anyone keen to work for Valter is given a reading list containing 120 books. Only after they have read all these books will Valter consider them for the role. He is looking to create future leaders and he believes that having read all of these books they will be fully subscribed to what Valter is working towards and it makes the working dynamic so much easier with the right conversations being held between his team.
Valter believes that regardless of where you come from if you decide you want something then you have the power to change your life as you can change. He surrounds himself with successful people, reads an incredible number of books and works hard yet efficiently. He has a big WHY and understands what he wants out of life. He sets clear goals and everything he does in life and business are always aligned with these goals. He continuously seeks to be the best version of himself and achieves this through his intense focus, meticulously planning of his daily routine and his optimised systemisation.
