For those that don’t know me, my names Chris and I am the co host of the Blackpool and Preston PPN.
Kirkham is were I live with my beautiful partner Holly our little princess Layla and Matilda the dog.
I invest across the Fylde coast and Preston.
My main interests are family, personal development, business, health and Preston North End.
My main belief in life is you get back what you put out, I am passionate about creating win-win scenarios with everyone that I meet.
I have been a serial entrepreneur from the age of around 14, my school bag was full of designer shirts and perfumes as opposed to books and I have carried on in that vein ever since. On leaving school I had various jobs with builders, bakers but I never found a local candle stick maker to take me on.
At 18 I started in sales and seemed to have a knack for it, after 18 months I thought I knew it all and had burnt out of sales. Back to labouring I went.
It didn’t take me long to realise that mixing plaster in the cold was not my life calling and I got a job back in sales at Dave Ravenscroft’s company. I worked my way up to telesales manager and then decided to start up on my own in business at the age of 25.
I was indeed a great sales person but not a great businessman and over the next 10 years I became obsessed on how to improve on this.
Mid way through 2015 I took the decision to start investing in property but before I started to buy I wanted to make sure that I had some education in place and someone to call when the inevitable bumps in the road appeared.
After lots of research I decided to attend the Progressive Property Masterclass in November 2016 and then went on to complete a year in Progressive VIP programme. The results have been astonishing!
On a side note , I know have a business employing 10 people that was born from a chance conversation at the Progressive Property Masterclass……. LIVING PROOF THAT YOU NEVER KNOW WERE A CONVERSATION CAN END UP
I now own 21 properties and have control of a further 3 which I run as multi lets
Over the past year I have had my fair share of highs and lows in both property and business and found that the network of friends that I have built up have been invaluable in overcoming challenges and pushing me on to bigger developments.
12 months ago I had only bought my own house, today I am looking at developments worth millions!
I’m not saying this to blow my own trumpet but to let everyone know what can be achieved by joining this fantastic community.
Our intention at the Blackpool and Preston PPN is to create a monthly shot in the arm of enthusiasm, motivation and inspiration for all our members.
Our event will be full with experts to help you along your property journey, whether you are just thinking about buying your first property or you looking at taking your property business to the next level.
I hope that you will join Dave and myself in making the Blackpool and Preston PPN the Norths premier networking event
