Learn about property investment from an expert: Join Samuel Leeds for a crash course on how he makes it pay
and live on Freeview channel 276
If you’ve ever fancied the idea of earning money from property investments but don’t know where to start, then a rare opportunity to meet a self-made millionaire could answer your question.
For one day only this month, property guru Samuel Leeds will stop off in Bradford as part of a short UK tour to reveal his strategies for success. And anyone can attend the Property Investors Crash Course for the surprisingly low price of just £1 per ticket (although late cancellation/no show fees apply).
With the affordable admission fee perhaps demonstrating his belief that people don’t need to start out with spare money to invest in bricks and mortar, Samuel will present the principles he’s followed to establish and expand his own business.
Attendees will learn how he is currently buying, refurbishing and selling properties for a profit and can also pick up essential tips about raising finance through joint ventures and other initiatives.
Samuel says his teaching academy has produced numerous property entrepreneurs including 23-year-old Adriana Cafasso from Wigan who’s monthly earnings already exceed the annual salaries of many people her age.
As a university graduate, Adriana was planning a career in law when she began to recognise the appeal of being her own boss and to think that the legal profession might not be the right choice for her. Instead she got a part-time marketing job and set up a small online business designing trainers.
Property investors crash course
But both ventures were only a stop gap and Adriana hit on the idea that a career involving property was worth exploring. With an open mind, she booked a place at a Property Investors Crash Course and later enrolled on a four-day Deal Selling Masterclass during which she saw Samuel Leeds sell deals on stage and felt inspired to find out more.
Convinced she was making the right decision, Adriana paid for a year-long programme at the Property Investors Academy and moved back home to live with her parents. Some people she knew had misgivings and feared it might be a scam but, in just ten months, the novice property investor says she recovered her course fees and more besides.
Adriana does admit that the early days were a struggle without having money to invest. “I was working every day and doing part-time work at the restaurant, earning a couple of hundred pounds here and there. But I was in my overdraft. Normally I’d been quite good with money before that, so it was a complete shift.”
But a chance meeting with two other students at an academy dinner set Adriana on her first joint venture of borrowing money to manage a property deal in Liverpool and then pay it back.
“That wouldn’t have happened had we not been at that dinner,” she explains. “One of my biggest lessons has been get yourself in the room and speak to everybody.”
Since then Adriana has built up her business and sold around 40 property deals. She continues to attend Property Investor events whenever possible and joins in regular online Mastermind calls with her peers to share ideas and knowledge.
As well as making an income from deal selling, she also rents out serviced accommodation and recently celebrated her biggest month financially.
But a real turning point came when she took part in the Property Investors Apprentice-style contest, The Eviction. Hosted by a no-nonsense Samuel Leeds, the competition sets demanding tasks for competitors who must stick to strict budgets and impress the boss all round to claim the winner’s crown.
Adriana was a runner-up and said the experience kick-started her success and improved her skills. “A month after that I got my first very own rent-to-rent. It was a lot of negotiating. It was a property which I fully refurbed. I got a new floor in there. I painted and decorated it, and I did it all myself.”
Now her advice to others with a similar dream is to have more confidence and build a good reputation.
