17 th January – Gill Alton “Maidenhead MUMpreneur” Property & Entrepreneurial Network Kent Tonight’s Speaker... Property & Entrepreneurial Network Kent Next Month’s Event... PEN Kent Call : “In Property : Your Network = Your NET WORTH” PEN Kent Call : “In Property : Your Network = Your NET WORTH” 21 st February – Paul Ribbons “A Mistake Worth Millions” Gill Alton was first introduced to the ‘world of property investing’ by her husband in 1996, as he built a small portfolio of properties during the previous housing crash. As a couple they added to these a few years later, but didn’t follow the same due diligence and admit they were guilty of making several property investing mistakes. She gave up a senior corporate career to join her husband in their family business, Alton Mortgages Ltd, to only weeks later have their world fall apart with the Credit Crunch. This had a massive financial impact on their family but also made them understand just how powerful passive income can be when times are tough. This experience changed their whole attitude and focus to investing. Gill is going to share her story with us and how she has used that experience to go on to build stronger financial foundations for her family, taking her total family portfolio to 17 houses, with an asset value of over £1.6m and a monthly net income of around £4k. She lives in Maidenhead, but chooses to invest in Nottingham, so will share her reasons behind this and how she has gone on to launch two property businesses – Alton Property Partners and Venus Property Mentoring, all while juggling family life with two young children. As this is our 2012 kick off meeting, it seems appropriate to ask Gill to also give a high level overview of how she is approaching 2012 to make it another highly successful investing year. So get your pens and pads ready as there may well be some hints and tips you would like to take down. The next PEN Kent Meeting on welcomes Paul Ribbons as our main speaker. Paul is one of the country’s leading auction experts & has sold literally hundreds of properties in the last 15 years through auctions – a wealth of knowledge & experience that our guests will be keen to learn from & question. The Worst Landlord in the World Rather than a buy-and-hold investor, Paul is very forthright about his strengths and the strategies that he personally uses in the world of property. He freely admits “I would be the worst landlord in the world as I have no patience. I don’t want to babysit tenants or to be at their beck and call.” He continues “My philosophy is simple: buy something at below market value and sell it straight away! I take the money and run – I want massive income not passive income!” Sharing Strategies Paul is delighted to be able to share his own background and insights with over 25 years in the property world, when he comes to the next meet. From finding and buying houses off the open market that need modernisation, through to selling them on at auction for a profit, Paul will be sharing the techniques and strategies that he’s used for many years to make a success of his lengthy career in property. Paul confesses to coming across his particular techniques by complete accident, and he triumphs the belief that succeeding in property is not down to any factors of skill or intelligence. He strongly believes that anyone can do it, if they’re simply aware of what simple steps to follow. Paul’s strategy is still as relevant today as it was 15 years ago, and probably more relevant with a large amount of investors looking for a safer haven for their money than the banks. And if that shared knowledge wasn’t enough… Paul has also agreed to share how a near fatal financial mistake turned into a multi- million pound strategy, and also how you can buy something at asking price and still make a profit!
