About 5 or 6 years ago, Nikki and i were basically accidental landlords, we were risk adverse, and we didn’t want to create a too big portfolio because we were frightened of taking risks.
However, about then, we met Simon Zutshi at the York pin meeting. I liked his ethics, i liked what he talked about and we decided that property was the way forward for us. Nikki, my partner, was in the police force and was not happy, so we needed something to replace her income. That became our reason why we wanted to invest in property. But we wanted to do it properly and seriously and we wanted to be professional about it. So we embarked on Simon Zutshi’s Mastermind Programme – we did it the traditional way. We started with the one day quick start (now property mastermind foundation), we liked what we heard so we then moved on to the three day accelerator course, and then we went on to do the full 12 month mastermind programme.
We set a target of Nikki leaving the police force in 2 years time, however, because of what we learnt on the course, she actually gave up work 8 months later. So then i embarked on doing coaching and mentoring for Simon as well as facilitating the Mastermind Local Leeds programme. In the mastermind local programme you have similar content delivered to what is delivered in the full mastermind programme, as well as 121 coaching and 10 advanced workshops, hosted by myself and Nikki.
Mastermind Local is not just about property, it is also a personal journey and about you getting out of your own way, so that you can progress and achieve the goals that you want through the vehicle of property. Mastermind Local is based in Leeds and one of the most powerful things we do on the course first thing is the Mastermind Learning session.
There are only between 8 and 11 candidates on the programme and basically we go around the room and you tell us what your challenges are, and then as a group we come up with solutions and options for you to go away with and implement. A very, very powerful session, that not only holds you accountable but gives you the support and guidance to help you overcome some of the challenges there are in property.
Mastermind Local is not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme; it is about you developing a sustainable property portfolio in a professional manner.
