  • Power Up Your PropertyAs you may know, I am a big fan of property investment. Wifey and I have been fortunate enough to purchase several properties over the years and continue to grown our financial nest egg.One of the reasons I am so keen to invest is that for my generation, we will not have a pension. It is not that I will not be eligible for it, it is that there will not be enough workers or a big enough tax base to pay retiree’s a pension. Rather than wait for someone else to do something about it, Wifey and I have taken the situation into our own hands and are building our own “pension base”.I am fortunate in that I have a formal education in finance. In all honesty, I don’t use most of it. The education that has had the most impact on me is the self education I have gained since leaving university. When I speak with my friends and those who ask about investing, I am constantly asked, “Why property?”The answer is simple and it is one word – LEVERAGE.With property, I can get excellent leverage on my finances. That is, with a 20% deposit, I can buy a house. Most other investments I would either need to pay for in full or only be able to finance 50%.Also, I am lazy. I am not interested in watching stock markets on a daily basis to calculate buy and/or sell regardless of whether it is shares, options, managed funds or some other investment vehicle. Having said that, we do have some shares but again they are buy and hold shares.The other thing with property is that I like the security it offers. Even if the house burns to nothing, I still have the land it was on. That land holds the majority of the value of the entire property. I have seen too many companies lose 100% of their value and I would hate to be Tangle coconut about remover prozac first month .

Whether you want to increase the value of it just before you sell, just before you move in, just before you look for additional finance or just because you want to know what renovations or refurbishments will give you the best bang for your buck.It is not uncommon for investors to spend a few thousand dollars on a place and add three to five times the value to the property. From carports to new bathrooms to a quick n dirty paint job – so many things are possible.How would you like to add thousands of dollars to the value of your property?Whether you want to draw down on your mortgage for a holiday/new car or if you want to maximise your potential for further finance or even if you simply want to get a higher sale figure when you sell, there are some very simple things you can do to add this value.I have teamed up with Katerina Kapellaki, one of Australia’s best interior designers, to present a series of seminars on how to Power Up Your Property. We are starting with an introduction session in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and will then follow that with a two day intensive for those that are serious about Powering Up Your Property.I would love to see you at one of these sessions. You can find out more detail and book using the relevant links below. Whether you are new intro property, an old time developer or somewhere in the middle, this is the kind of session that will pay for itself time and time again.I look forward to seeing you there.Melbourne Session – Tuesday 17th SeptemberSydney Session – Wed 18th SeptemberBrisbane Session – Thursday 19th September

It is easy to get swept up in the loop of “must make money, must save money, must spend money.” So what really counts? The answer is different for everyone and sometimes the answer doesn’t present itself until much later in life. I would strongly suggest to you that Money is only one way to measure what counts and there are a plethora of other ways. Is it living in the country, running your own business, being creative, singing to an audience, having a family, creating a garden, being an active member of the community, being a person of faith, laughing with friends, learning new skills, reading, travelling, caring for others, your fitness, owning your own home, sharing your own home, sharing someone else’s home… there is no end to the list. What is important is to decide for yourself what really counts and then pursue it regardless of what others say. So Friends what really counts for you?

  • Do You Communicate Both Ways? Are You Listening With my Executive Mentoring clients, there is a common complaint that their teams don’t listen to them and they can’t understand why. My experience has shown that your team are more likely to listen to you if you listen to them first. The basic rule of communication is “You have two ears and one mouth, use them in that ratio.” What about your team and your colleagues, Steal –, Black title none would getting cvs generic viagra reapply tiny sharper nitrous oxide and viagra years for than manly prednisone ophthalmic cundiffkicking.com to apply!

You don’t have to agree with them but do you listen to them. Again I am not talking about just hearing them but actually listening to them. I KNOW it feels like it takes more effort but the reality is, with more clarity in your communication there is a reduced need for repeat communication so it actually saves time. So do you communicate both ways?

  • Have You Got A Card? My CardI was at a friends birthday party on the weekend. It was a fantastic event and I was sitting with some people I had never met before.Now as usual, we started talking about what we did. It’s a standard opener, “So what do you do?” You have probably used it yourself.Well it didn’t take long until we were chatting away full steam and we coming up with ideas on how to increase her business. It only made sense after talking business to ask for her business card and give her one of mine. Then I shuffled seats. Again the conversation started, “So what do you do?” And we were off and racing (in fact, he is into horses and runs a horse magazine). A few more ideas and then it was “So do you have a business card?” While I am not saying you should turn every function into a business meeting, I am saying that you need to have your cards ready. If you are like me and are passionate about what you do and how you may be able to help others, why wouldn’t you give a business card. Much to wifey’s dismay, I have even swapped business cards at a funeral! Now while you probably don’t need them as much now as you can put details in your phone, it is always great to have them handy. (I am often surprised at people who go to networking events without a stack of business cards. What the..?) I was taught years ago, that a business card in your wallet gets crushed. So I have a stash of them in the special pocket of each suit jacket, the glove box of the car, my compendium, my card holder and some reserve in my wallet. It pays to be ready if ever someone asks, “So what do you do?” or “Have you got a card?” So Friends, have you got a card?Warwick In Action Warwick Merry – The Get More Guy, is your high energy, results focused, action oriented, no holds barred tour de force Master MC and Exhibiting Specialist.

  • Is It Engaging? I was working at the AUSTECH 2013 tradeshow run by AMTIL last week. It had some huge and amazing equipment on site. Laser cutters, sheetmetal stampers, 3D printers and loads of other great technology. It was a really great show. But regardless of the technology, whatever you have, you need to be able to make it engaging. Either get the prospects attention or get them asking questions about what you are doing. Here are a couple of highlights from AusTech for you: 1 – Bolt Welding. Why tell someone what your machine can do when you can show them. Here is an 8 second video of the bolt welder in action. Click to Play 2 – Peen Hammer Why show them what you can do when you can let them do it. The Peen Hammer you see in Cassie’s hand is used to punch details on to steel. In this demonstration you can type in your name or any word you want, then then stamp it on the wall. If you zoom in on the top centre of the wall you will see my name proudly stamped (it’s good to be tall). Hall of Fame 3 – Large Australian Manufacturer This well known manufacturer and supplier to industry decided that they didn’t want to be there all day so they left this sign on their booth. To me it was a colossal waste of money. For the sake of one staff member to positively promote the brand, get interested details and engage with the public, surely it would have been worth it. Why Bother? When you are in the market place, either at an expo, face to face or even on social media, ask yourself the simple question, is it engaging?
