Ian Potter, of the Association of Residential Letting Agents, said: "The contraction in the buy-to-let market will have a very significant impact on the availability of housing stock for the population." GOOD! Is it me? Am I the only one seeing an opportunity here???
Thoughts have been running through my head today about what I would do when I make it. When my financial dreams and aspirations and plans have come to fruition. By my own reckoning, I’m about half way there. But it depends on what your definition is of financial freedom, doesn’t it? Are you someone who wants who wants to be a millionaire on paper, i.e. having assets to that value? Or are you someone who wants to make more passive income than your outgoings, a la Rich Dad? That second one is deceptively easy, although I confess I am about […]
“Judith Morgan is the best business coach/mentor I know. She sees things others don’t (or long before they do), her mind is as sharp as a razor, yet she delivers her wisdom with love and respect for her clients. She is great at listening to one’s ramblings, quickly understanding what you’re trying to do and has an immense and genuine belief in what you can achieve.” Marion Ryan, OnlineBusinessGym
Coaching clients and colleagues, despite it being my intention to pull back on that sort of work. Sorting out a big backlog of Cartel paperwork, all glitches, clients (myself included) waiting to find various bits and bobs of paperwork, necessitating visits to Earls Court and Mill Hill. Growing the team. Working with Mike & John to bring the Creative Entrepreneurs Club up to speed. Copying with a snowy car accident and managing in my “courtesy” car – a Fiat Punto. The only way I know its my car is that it doesn’t have any hub caps, just big heavy doors […]
It just happens if you don’t force it – you find form. I hit the ground running yesterday morning with a big pile of stuff which needed doing and I polished most of it off yesterday – I ordered some new clothes which arrived in the post today. I have tried them all on, kept the ones I liked and already returned the ones I didn’t and ordered some more. Mail order is a bit hit and miss but a boon. I’ve done the filing, ordinary and financial. I am up to date with The Archers. I have placed adverts […]
Clients ask me all the time “what makes a good property investment and do you think this one will be OK”? The short answer is usually “I don’t know”…no-one knows in advance whether any investment’s projections will come true or not, only hindsight will tell. You can do your own due diligence, you can meet others who have done it and ask them why, you can quiz them till their brains hurt but in the end you just have to make a decision – are you in or out? All I can tell you is that I was a woman […]
When out and about driving in my car, I find out a lot about popular culture and what’s going on in the world from billboards, from the news, from radio – I’m a radio tart flitting between Radio 2 (for Terry Wogan, Steve Wright and Chris Evans) and the commercial channels (Classic FM, Magic, Heart etc. depending where I am in the UK and my mood). Last week I noticed a very cool URL as I was driving in North London JunkAndDisorderly.com – now don’t tell me that’s not a FAB URL – memorable, I can still remember it from […]
Never mind Hug A Hoodie, how about Hug Your Accountant or Big Up Your Book-keeper? The nice people at the AAT have written a song dedicated to accountants and book-keepers everywhere. “We know they are working very hard at this time of year filing returns and saving us money. But do they get the love they deserve? Of course not. So we have written a special Valentine’s thank you song to show our appreciation.” It’s called My Money Valentine!
Over at The Money Gym, we love property investing. In fact we love it right now more than ever. But we are very tired of all the doom and gloom and so we are running a Property Extravaganza day in March (in aid of The Big Issue) so we can share with you all the good news we have discovered about property investing right now. We would love you to join us. It’s only £25 to hang out with some of the smartest, most upbeat property folks you could ever hope to meet. We hope to see you and […]
You can’t have missed the fact that Valentine’s day is just around the corner. Now, I know it’s a bit corny and it certainly is over-commercialised but it’s still a special time for twos. Whether you’re just starting out (again) or a comfortable couple, there’s still an opportunity to make things special. Are you going out for dinner? You’d better reserve a table today if you haven’t already! You might prefer to cook a meal in – it will certainly save you money and can be much more fun.
