Utilising Property to Live a Passionate Life

Do you feel there is more to Life?

Do you have an inner hankering to do something else, but you just aren’t sure what it is?  Perhaps you feel that you haven’t yet found your true purpose in life yet?

Yesterday I met with a Coach John P Morgan www.jpmorganjr.com who specialises in coaching people to identify their real passion in life, the thing that makes them tick.   His focus is 100% on delivering results to his clients so that they not only identify their love for life, but they also take the steps to actually go forth and take action to turn their dreams into reality.

I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation, as we had a mutual respect for investing in property and what it can achieve,  as in his early 20′s John had been a property investor in America.

Together we agreed that investing in property opens doors and creates opportunities.  As part of a balanced portfolio it can give you the peace of mind and mental security to know that you have income coming in from alternative streams.   It provides you with choices.  However, we agreed there are two distinct types of people – those whose passion is in property, and those whose passion is outside of property.

It was clear to John that my passion is distinctly ‘in property’, I love the buzz of finding the deal, completing the financials to understand if the property stacks up and produces cash flow after all the costs have been accounted for.  But most of all I love the difference property can make in my clients life.

I get my kicks from making a difference in others lives whether that is through turning an unloved property into a home for a family who could not afford one for themselves, mentoring  others to learn the skills to invest for themselves via my business www.venuspropertymentoring.co.uk , or helping those whose passion in life is ‘outside of property’  but who recognise property is the conduit to help them live the life they desire.

We discussed how all to often in our materialistic world people get hung up on the number of houses people own, however I feel very strongly this can miss the point.  To me success in property investment is not about how ‘many’ houses you own, it’s about the lifestyle it provides you, it’s about securing a lifestyle which you can maintain for the long term and it’s about minimising your risks to that lifestyle being affected by issues outside of your control. To me it is better to have a portfolio of 5 houses producing high cash-flow, than to have 20 houses highly geared.     Put simply investing in property wisely is not about ‘keeping up with the Jones’s , it’s about planning the best route for you,  it’s about using property to meet the dreams and desires you alone have.

It is also based on utilising every opportunity to maximum benefit whether this is ‘using other people’s money’ to help you achieve maximum cash flow, or utilising the skills and knowledge of other people to achieve your dreams.

I explained to John that my Handsfree Property Portfolio Building Service, Alton Property Partners was designed specifically to work with those individuals whose life is already full, but who realise that investing in property is their route to freedom, their route to achieving their goals and passion which is ‘outside of property’. Whether this is travelling, or working with children etc

So if this is you, I would thoroughly recommend you utilise someone else to invest and build your property portfolio for you,  choose someone whose passion is property,  as they will put their heart and soul into delivering you the best results, all while you are freed you up, to concentrate on that which really lights your fire.

And if you are still confused over what that fire is don’t forget John can help you with that!  Infact you may like to attend a talk he is giving in Oxford on the Tuesday 18th September. http://www.oxfordyesgroup.org/?q=node%2F89&fb_source=message
