    168 - Katrina Lumsden: Styling For Holiday Accommodation

    Katrina Lumsden has a strong passion for real estate. She has a new big goal: to buy, renovate and design a hotel in a cool holiday property. Think Palm Springs meets coastal luxe.



    Styling for holiday accommodation is Katrina’s superpower. She has a business called Studio Haven which you can find on Instagram (@studiohaven_au). Working with holiday homeowners to elevate and transform their homes into must-stay destinations, Katrina is extremely passionate about her work, which she says lights her up. She has helped hundreds of holiday homeowners upgrade their properties and start earning a great income.

    I invited her to chat to me about the income-generating project she has recently completed in her backyard. Her enthusiasm for elevated holiday properties and creating spaces at home that make you feel like you are on holiday is infectious. Take a listen to find out how you can tap into her skills.

    [Encore] Is Buying And Renovating A Website Similar To Property Renovation?

    [Encore] Is Buying And Renovating A Website Similar To Property Renovation?

    This week we have something very special for you. About a year ago I invited Liz Raad to talk about renovating websites. I have been interested in this strategy for quite some time, for a couple of reasons one is because it's about digital, and digital is definitely very current and loaded with opportunities. And the second reason is that it's at such a low price point and as opposed to property.



    Whenever I make a decision to learn a new skill, I like to shortcut the learning curve and get some help from someone who has already walked the walk. And so my guest today is the person that I have chosen as my mentor and that's Liz Raad.



    Highlights:



    [00:00:34] Bernadette's goal number 33: learn to flip websites

    [00:02:55] Being a confident woman in a male dominated industry

    [00:03:45] From buying and selling real estate properties to buying and renovating websites

    [00:05:17] Setting short-term and long-term goals in buying and renovating websites

    [00:05:17] How to build a more passive income

    [00:06:50] Cashflow strategies and long-term assets strategies

    [00:07:29] Helping local businesses with their websites and generate cashflow

    [00:09:18] How long does it take to become proficient in buying and renovating websites

    [00:10:23] How a student leveraged and accelerated her website renovating journey

    [00:11:43] There is a learning journey but once you have it renovating is a skill for life

    [00:15:13] Keeping your brain working while generating income

    [00:16:04] You need experience and mastery in buying websites and buying property

    [00:17:08] Renovating  websites from a couple of hundred dollars to multi-million dollars

    [00:18:23] How to pick website deals that suit you

    [00:19:27] Does the buyer's agent have a role in buying websites?

    [00:20:17] Why due diligence is worth millions

    [00:22:09] The low buy-in makes renovating websites a  much safer process

    [00:26:05] Buying a website is like buying a blue-chip suburb

    [00:28:48] Our goal in buying and renovating a website is always to double our income

    [00:30:04] Is it better to buy websites on topics that you're passionate about?

    [00:29:54] The skills that your website renovating team must have

    [00:33:44]  How renovating websites is similar to renovating properties

    164 - A Successful Mindset Is A Must For A Successful Renovation Business

    164 - A Successful Mindset Is A Must For A Successful Renovation Business

    Your mindset in the business of renovation determines how successful you will be in making a profit. Doing the courses and learning the skills required to get the job done are important, but unless you can translate your knowledge into an action plan, you are not going to change your life.



    I spoke to Michelle Lewis, our renovation and mindset coach, about the value of mindset in renovating. She believes strongly in the power of investing in yourself and how it makes it possible to change your mindset. She said:

    “We all grow up with certain beliefs as children and in our families. And sometimes those beliefs can be huge blocks to our success and to ourselves… And so I've worked really hard on working through those blocks and having a mindset where I can really achieve anything that I want to.”



    Listen to Michelle’s advice about cultivating a mindset for success in the renovation for-profit business.



    EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:


    [01:29] Michelle Lewis as a Mindset Coach.
    [02:15] The value of Mindset in renovating.
    [03:36] Common Mindset issues for renovators.
    [5:37]  Success begins at the end of your comfort zone.
    [8:46] Bernadette donates phones to women knitting in India.
    [11:02] Start with your “why?”
    [12:54] The concept of being enough.
    [14:02] Mindset needs work as well.
    [17:24] It’s important to keep an open mind when renovating for profit.
    [19:51] The importance of having an accountability partner or a coach.
    [21:55] Write your accountability and goals.
    [23:12] The benefits of having a community of women doing Reno around you.
    [24:06] Am I too old to be doing Renovation?
