    Interview with Davin Poonwassie | Crowdfunding

    Interview with Davin Poonwassie | Crowdfunding

     
    In this episode, we are joined by Davin Poonwassie, a pioneer in the UK crowdfunding sector. Davin and his wife are the founders of Simple Crowdfunding a Property Crowdfunding marketplace that connects investors with fundraisers.
    Prior to Crowdfunding Davin had an IT background specializing in network and database management. He worked on innovative projects and teams responsible for over 200 servers across Europe. This gave him the experience on the distributed system well for Bitcoin and Blockchain were buzzwords. (As we all now known in this time, Cryptocurrency is based on Blockchain which uses distributed technology.)
    Starting early, Davin began his property journey during university with some help from his brother. Later during his IT contracting career in the 2000s he and his wife decided to focus on property and began to build a portfolio. And it was in the process they came to look at crowdfunding as a viable business.
    Using their combined skills and experience across technology, CRM, regulations, and compliance they managed to create a platform based on the idea of talking to a crowd of people over the internet and using technology to safely connect people looking for money with people looking for deals.

    Interview with Piotr Rusenik | Property at Auction

    Interview with Piotr Rusenik | Property at Auction

    In this episode, we are joined by Piotr Rusenik, a specialist in auction property purchases and director of Synergy Property Partners. Besides that, we go behind the story of my own recent purchase of a property at auction.
    Piotr specialises in buying and selling properties at auction. He mainly assists people experiencing issues selling a property, or just need to sell quickly and have typically never used auction house before.
    First of all, his transition to entrepreneurship started after spending time as an employee buying and selling properties at auction for a boutique London firm. He went on to start his own business 5 years ago.
    Piotr not only shares his own strategy for bidding at auctions, but we also tell us about the downsides of auction purchases. Most importantly drops an Easter egg about how you can find out the reserve price from the guide price.
    In contrast, we talk about my recent experience of buying at auction. While Piotr provides me with some guidance on what I should do differently next time.

    Welcome to the Slow Money Club Podcast. The show giving you realistic ways of attaining financial freedom. We share Get Rich Slow strategies to help you go from employee to entrepreneur and turn your dreams into income streams. In this episode, we have a chat with Tina Walsh, a property sourcing specialist. Tina and her husband, Tony, are the founders of Sanctuary Property Sourcing.
    Before becoming an expert in property sourcing, Tina covered quite a range of areas which helped build up her skills. She has not only worked in the police force, in a tile shop but also learned the historical nature of building and architecture. She's also gone on to work as a PA and then in a school where she has managed the funding process. She left the school environment and went into the healthcare sector where she started out on her way to sourcing, initially businesses.
    Tina also shared that while they always loved property, when they went attempted investing in 2005 in property, it didn’t go as what they planned. Wanting to pursue what they love, they used mentorship programs as a way to plug their knowledge gaps and very pleased with the outcome they got from their mentorship program.
    It was through this process that they came to the realization that but their main interests were in the business side and wanted something they could do together, so this led them to the property sourcing business.
    With Tina’s experience, she shared, ‘I know that a lot of people think that you should not have to pay thousands of pounds for mentorship but the most valuable thing that any one of us got is our time and it takes time to become an expert in any subject.’

    Interview with Diksesh Patel |Entrepreneurship is a Slow Money Business

    Interview with Diksesh Patel |Entrepreneurship is a Slow Money Business

    Welcome to the Slow Money Podcast. Where we give you realistic ways of attaining financial freedom.
    We share Get Rich Slow strategies to help you go from employee to entrepreneur and turn your dreams into income streams.
    In this episode, we have a chat with Diksesh Patel, CEO of Lighthouse Capital. Someone who has followed the SlowMoney approach and gone from employee to entrepreneur.
    As well as a successful career in investment banking,  Diksesh has been involved in property for more than 25 years and has built a large Buy-to-Let and HMO portfolio worth £3.4 million. He started building his portfolio in 1993 and expanded into HMOs in 2015.
    He gave up his career and has since gone on to found Lighthouse Capital Group which focuses on sourcing and developing large-scale property projects for investors. Diksesh and his partners at Lighthouse Capital are experienced property developers with over 30 years of experience and over £300 million of projects behind them.
    We discussed some of the core values of his business such as transparency, fairness and integrity, and the importance of developing lasting relationships, based on trust and mutual respect.
    Key talking points included:
    What it was like growing up in North West London council estate and going in to study at London School of Economics despite  being told by his teacher that he "was never going to get in" Beginning his career as a programmer before taking his first steps on his entrepreneurial journey when he decided to take redundancy and start an e-commerce business Diksesh spent a lot of his evenings and weekends building his tech platform. His goal was to build an income which could supplement his income, and eventually replace it. He ended up loosing "well in excess of £500k" from his first endeavour. Some of the biggest learning is that "It’s okay to ask for help. Especially from subject matter experts because when you’re farting off you don’t know what you don’t know" Going back into the corporate world a second time but with a different perspective. "This brings challenges of being an employee with more experience than the people he was working for because of his entrepreneurial journey." Diksesh spent 3 years establishing his business before moving back into the entrepreneurial world. This time with a lot more experience and understanding about what he wanted from a lifestyle business. We also had an in-depth discussion on some of the reasons why property was a good enterprise for someone who was also working in full-time employment.
    "Property has ring-fenced, outsourced, systemised contracts. I’ve got a very thin business and I love that. And as your business grows, you will have to grow your team around that"
    Breaking it down into 3 main elements
    Deal Funding Delivery "Focus on one of the three! The more you partner the quicker you can transition from employee to entrepreneur. It’s a Slow Money business." he insists.
    Other talking points included  What’s a reasonable runway?  What does a typical day as a developer look like? How and what CRM does he use?
    Additionally, he breaks down one of his current development deals and the strategies he used to get the deal.

    Interview with Kevin Wright | Bridging the finance gap in property investments

    Interview with Kevin Wright | Bridging the finance gap in property investments

    Welcome to the Slow Money Podcast. Where we give you realistic ways of attaining financial freedom.
    In each episode, we share Get Rich Slow strategies to help you go from employee to entrepreneur and turn your dreams into income streams.
    In this episode, we have a chat with Kevin Wright, an expert in Bridging Finance and developer of the Recycle Your Cash and Ninja Investor Programmes. Kevin like many people didn’t have a clear career path to the property sector and has been a successful designer and seller of kitchens.
    He moved into financial services and has been a financial advisor since 1992. Kevin’s current brokerage focuses on bridging and development finance. He has also taught over 1,000 people about the intricacies of bridging finance and how it can be used with intelligence to produce a successful outcome. We spoke with Kevin about the start of his property journey and he told us how he learned about the property trade by observing his first landlord making money from property. This happened to be an HMO before they were popular.
    The value of this episode is a really in-depth discussion about Bridging Finance. We talk about the pros, cons, and various strategies that are available to maximise investment opportunities. Kevin takes us through some examples to help better understand bridging and dispels some myths and fears.
    Key discussion points include:
    Whilst good time management enables one to juggle a full-time job and a property portfolio, one will have to “burn the candle at both ends” for a limited period of time to be successful What Lenders take into account when offering a mortgage: Earnings multiples Lifestyle factors impact disposable income e.g. number of dependents Impact of future interest rate rises For a cash-poor investor, there are still multiple ways that they can get into the market despite it being more difficult to borrow money from a traditional mortgage provider e.g. Lease Options, Rent to Rent and Bridging Bridging companies provide a number of different products that will reduce the deposit required from the investor. The better training courses provide material which you can take with you and also provide post-training support. In addition, if the tutor only spends a small proportion of course time on upselling then the chances are that you will get value for money.

    Interview with Susannah Cole | Learning First - The importance of understand your own learning style as an entrepreneur

    Interview with Susannah Cole | Learning First - The importance of understand your own learning style as an entrepreneur

    Welcome to the SlowMoneyClub. The show that gives you realistic ways of attaining financial freedom. We share Get Rich Slow strategies to help you go from employee to entrepreneur and turn your dreams into income streams.
    In this episode, I’m joined by Susannah Cole founder of The Good Property Company.
    10 years ago Susannah was a single mum with very little, as she put it herself. We spoke with Susannah about her humble beginnings. Since then she’s gone on to achieve some amazing success in property, sourcing over £45m worth of real estate along the way. Her journey from employee to entrepreneur started out with various jobs she used as a way of learning about running a successful business. Armed with this knowledge, experience, and a £1.8m property portfolio she’d started building in the background, she quit her day job and became a full-time property entrepreneur. Susannah shared the story of her first entrepreneurial venture. Aged only 22 she was selling fair trade items at festivals around the country; driven by a desire to make a difference. She also discussed the impact that support she received from the Princes Trust had on her career.  She has since gone on to sourcing over £45m worth of property BMV working with investors. Susannah's Key discussion points include: (10:00) Susannah shared her belief about how important it is to understand your personal earning style. She took a learning first approach to her property career and spent a year researching and wrote a business plan before buying her first property. This meant she knew exactly what strategy she would implement from day one and had an idea of what to do if things went wrong. She also explained the importance of having clear criteria for who you work with and the impact that will have on your success. Key Talking Points: 11:00 On the transition from Employee to entrepreneur – “Working full time doesn’t have to mean you only do your day job. You can try and find flexible ways in how you use things like holidays. I was spending 30h on a property as a side hustle while working full time.” 14:20 Paying into a pension – before I quit my job and paying into a pension so you have security and also as preparation for it the initial entrepreneurial hardship” - genius move it moving away from pain towards pleasure. 30:00 Benefits of having a mentor – “Being advised by high-level people I recognised that I had some gaps. As an entrepreneur you are bootstrapping…and some of the stuff you learn in the corporate world is really useful later on as an entrepreneur.” Don’t forget to give us a 5* review on iTunes for your chance to enter into our prize draw!
