Bill Gates vs. Your Average Entrepreneur

There’s only one big difference between Bill Gates and your local one man band barber. It’s not what you might think. It’s certainly not born skill. It’s not born into wealth. Despite how smart Bill Gates is perceived to be, it’s not necessarily intellect either. It’s as simple as this: Your local one man band has no one working for him.

Are you looking for Property Investing Perfection?

What are you investing in at the moment? The answer doesn’t need to be a type of property, a method, or even an area, it’s more likely these days to be a cash-flow return.

How to supplement your BTL income by at least £50,000 per year

I’ve just read an incredibly thought-provoking article about just how valuable – and transferable ­– our skills as BTL investors can be…  For sometime now, I’ve been following the blog of UK Property Expert, Lyndon Forshaw, with interest – especially his approach to new build developing. In his latest free download, he reveals that the transition from BTL investing to new build developing is not as much of a leap as you may think…  As you’ve probably noticed, making genuine regular profits from buy-to-let is far, far harder than it used to be! That’s why it’s more important than ever to supplement your long-term investment strategies.  Of course, BTL is a great long-term investment strategy.

He says that options are the power steering for property investors.

Mark went through what was needed to form an option agreement and explained that options allow you to gain control of an asset without the liability – you still have responsibility but not the liability.  A...
