One of, if not the most important factors that determine how successful you are in the property game and for that matter life is not only how others perceive you, but how you perceive yourself. I am not talking about reputation (although this is important) but more importantly the mindset you have towards “running your life” and how this translates to a more businesslike approach to your investing. Let me explain…
Imagine for a moment that you own a business. Now imagine what it takes you to run your business; Marketing, Public Relations, Finance, Sales, Operations, Planning and so on. For your business to be successful and turn a great profit you need each of these areas running as efficiently as they can be. If you let any of these areas slip then your success in the marketplace will also slip.
Now, what if I said you do have a business… and it is YOU! Yep, you are the best business you will ever own, you just need to start looking at yourself from a business perspective and invest the time required to grow your business.
This months speaker Jeff Miles (The Business Doctor) is somewhat of an expert on running a business, and has helped many business owners take their organisations to the next level. As well as being a business coach Jeff is also an active property investor who understands the wealth creation power that property can offer.
Using his no nonsense approach Jeff is going to give us some insight into why we need to start looking at ourselves as a business and work though some practical tools to help us move forward with this process.
Jeff will be covering topics such as;
- Why you need to start looking at yourself seriously and how to do this
- How do Business Owners Think (i.e. thinking like an Employer not an Employee)
- Thinking Like a Business
- Managing your team
- Understanding Financial reports
- Monitor your financial position with precision
- Understand your financial capacity
- Growing your business
- Increasing Income Sources (e.g. business acquisition, short stay rental)
- The importance of Leverage, both money and time
There will also be time for questions, so come prepared for what will be a great night as its not often you get to hear about what can really make a real and lasting difference to your life.
