    Finding the right balance in life is essential to happiness and productivity. If you lose sight of your "why" then it makes the work much harder.
    Opportunities come from everywhere. The best of the best are the ones who can take any situation and find the opportunity that lies there.

    Panel Show: Capital Allowances

    Panel Show: Capital Allowances

    Mark Winship is joined by Alan Cadden from Cavetta Consulting, to discuss the all-important topic of capital allowances. Many view tax information as somewhat dry, but as Mark and Alan explain, the amount of money you could be saving through capital allowances can often be staggering to investors. Listen as the "best kept secret in property" is discussed.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Capital allowances apply to fixtures and fittings for commercial properties. HMRC are willing to give an allowance for anything that degrades in these properties over time.
    Your alternative to NOT claiming for capital allowances is to pay more to HMRC. This is the simple fact of the matter. Only 30% of commercial property investors claim capital allowances.
    Capital allowance claims can be used on properties such as hotels, let apartments, serviced accommodations, so long as the property is not a primary residence.

     BEST MOMENTS

    'Capital allowances are the best kept secret in property'

    'If you do this in the first couple of years this can be very advantageous'

    'Landlords can be sat on situations where they can maximise their profits, and increase return on investment'

    Panel Show: Valuations

    Panel Show: Valuations

    Mark Winship is joined by Emily Smith to discuss the important topic of valuations, the attaining of which can be the crucial factor in the success of your buy-refurbish-refinance strategy. In this Mark and Emily share some practical tips on how to gauge the finished value of a property while calculating a deal's potential, how to make the bank valuation process more favourable, and how to handle the dreaded down valuation...

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The first step is to think with the end in mind. We need to envision the potential in any project before we take it on.
    As investors we minimise risk by investing only in projects that we have evidence for. These are known as comparables, and can provide some sense of guidance on how a deal may work out.
    Other forms of assurance can come through agents. This means that developing relationships with agents can be crucial in fundamentally understanding the potential in a deal.

     BEST MOMENTS

    'We need to start with the end in mind'

    'If you can have 2+ comparables, you'll be in the best position'

    'I always ask for more than I want'

    Ana Attlee: Revisited

    Ana Attlee: Revisited

    Caroline Claydon talks to Dr Ana Attlee, who stumbled upon property as a way to save the planet, and who used investment to leave her job just five months later! While juggling motherhood and building a business on the side, Dr Ana built an impressive portfolio of properties, and in today's show, Ana talks about how she overcame her lack of self-confidence, and used the guidance of others to help propel herself upwards in both business and property.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Success comes through commitment. Financial backing, and lack of knowledge are things that can be overcome. We must have the will to succeed.
    Mentors can help to guide us through the tough periods, when our determination seems to be failing. To know that someone has been there before, and that they managed to push through, can mean the difference between success and failure.
    Do your best to make sure that you have some kind of presence, so that potential investors can see who you are and what you can do.
    We need to recognise that different people work with different property strategies. Just because something doesn't work for us, doesn't mean it won't work for someone else.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'By January, I had made more money than I had ever made in all my life'

    'It's all about the mindset behind the idea'

    'It starts to get more and more heartbreaking, to give these amazing houses away!'

    'I am really lucky to have built myself a passive income'

    Myth Buster: Debt Is Bad

    Myth Buster: Debt Is Bad

    Mark Winship is joined by Emily Smith to discuss the commonly-held myth that debt is bad. As they discuss, debt isn't always a bad thing, and may require an adjustment when it comes to mindset...

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Changing our mindset about money isn't just a property issue. It should be a business issue. Money is a tool, and some debt can be far more useful than constantly saving in order to invest.
    There is a systemic belief that life should be spent saving, mortgages should be paid off, and debt should be avoided at all costs.
    Good debt is manageable debt that we take on in order to provide assets that subsequently provide income and generate assets for life.

     BEST MOMENTS

    'We are told that debt is a bad thing'

    'The issue stems from a lack of financial education'

    'Debt to fund your lifestyle is bad'
