Having previously worked most of my professional life in process improvement / change management I have always wondered “what-if I focussed only on my property business”. I’m 2009 I became a landlord. Since 2017 I have decided to make property my focus, scaled back my involvement in other areas and focussed on property.
Since then I’ve been focussing on growing our property portfolio remotely and whilst I’m being a full time parent to our children. This has meant I’ve had to have a relentless focus on how we get things done, to make sure tasks are done completely and in a compliant way but without me being on the phone all day. For this reason we’ve built a team of contractors and niche suppliers who we work with so that we can do everything from find, refurbish and manage BTLs and HMOs.
I’m passionate about raising monies for causes that are important to me, and have realised that I can provide sustainable and ongoing funding for those causes by providing a % of our profits to those causes that are important to our family. Since I’ve realised that I’ve scaled back the one-off fundraising in the short term and am focused on establishing our business so that we can contribute 20% of our profits from property to causes they are important to us.
I’m excited about the future for our family property business. I’m excited about doing more buy to lets, HMOs and also moving into larger development projects to develop unused buildings in our area into loved buildings.
