About Your Host
Hello! Thank you for wanting to get to know a little bit more about me. I’m Traci Cornelius a Business Mentor, Mindset coach, speaker, podcaster of the ‘Women Rockin Business’ Podcast and Mum to five girls aged 22, 7, 6, 5 and 3. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in running, growing and scaling businesses.
My passion is helping others to obtain financial independence, time freedom and choice freedom. Being able to choose what to do, when, whilst having the money to fund the experiences.
With retirement age getting moved to later and later in life and more and more people having less time to enjoy life with those they love, have the experiences they really want to have, to give their time and financial support to the causes they wish to give back too I feel that now it’s even more important than ever to take control of our own lives and financial destiny and property is a great medium to do so.
The first property I got involved in was with my then partner and I helped him to gain over £100,000 in profit. The property was fumigated twice and finished to a high standard. We lived in it for a while and then I sold the property on the very same afternoon we made the decision to put it on the market!
Circumstances halted my property journey for a while and then with the recent shock passing of my younger brother it really brought home at how short life can be and that we have a duty to ourselves to make it the very best it can be.
This led to getting the support, education and access to property expertise to help build our property portfolio.
No matter where you are on your property journey Exeter PPN and Mark and I are here to support you so that you can make the very best of your life and experiences no matter what that means to you.
Hi, I’m Mark Ford, I started out as a carpenter and worked for a damp proofing company which is where my interest in property started.
I moved into property maintenance working on a variety of properties old and new. This helped me to gain a variety of skills including plastering, carpentry, bricklaying, groundwork, basic plumbing and electrics.
I am passionate about transforming properties from the ugly duckling into something that people are proud to call their home or into a place they enjoy staying in.
Due to the economic circumstances at the time and a growing family, I then changed careers. I’m a Line Manager running the warehouse for Torbay Hospital and just received my 10-year service medal for the Army reserves.
The experiences I have from my Army and working career have provided many transferable skills that I have added to my property experience which all helps with our growing property portfolio but also our business.
Like Traci, I am also passionate about helping people to gain financial independence and know that Exeter PPN is a great networking event that can help bring people together for mutual benefit as with the Army we are stronger together and so can be more successful in achieving our goals and dreams.
Next Event – Coming in Early 2020 – We will keep you posted.
