Property under the spotlight: join investment guru Samuel Leeds when he shares his expertise and insight
Do you ever imagine what it might be like to earn enough money to make positive changes in life? According to an experienced property investor, that doesn't have to be an impossible dream and he's on a mission to tell people why.
Millionaire businessman Samuel Leeds regularly tours the UK with the message that anyone can make those changes and see investments pay off by following the strategies that work for him.
Coming from someone who made his first £1m by the age of 25, it’s a message that might strike a chord. But you’ll need to make up your own mind and one way to do it is to secure a place on a Property Investors crash course.
For the undeniably budget-friendly price of just £1 for an all-day event, the property guru is inviting people along to find out how he strikes successful deals and makes meaningful investments. And he says anyone can get the ball rolling even without having spare money to use as capital.
He runs several crash courses which combine to cover a whole host of topics including how to raise different types of finance, identify suitable properties or package up deals that appeal to investors.
They also highlight property legislation, tenancy options, returns on investment and the secrets to making a great pitch plus a whole lot more.
Tips and demonstrations
Samuel admits that the information available to anyone starting out in the business can seem overwhelming or inconsistent. His answer is to describe what works for him and demonstrate those methods in front of an audience.
It’s an approach that thousands of people have witnessed over the years, often leading interested parties to sign up to learn more, he says.
The West Midlands-born entrepreneur now runs a busy training academy offering short and intensive courses as well as an advanced 12-month programme and options for ongoing membership.
Writing books and making videos
He’s written several books about business and his own rise to riches and has a YouTube channel that’s watched by thousands. He’s also a regular visitor to countries in Africa where he carries out charitable projects to improve living standards, medical treatment and education.
In fact Samuel’s life for more than a decade has been quite a contrast to his experiences growing up in Walsall which were rather less inspiring. Describing himself as a school drop-out, Samuel never felt academic and left at the age of 16 with only a few average grade GCSEs.
He decided to learn the practical trade of plastering but didn’t particularly see it as a job for life. His interest in property happened more by accident than planning when he gradually came to realise that there was money to be made from bricks and mortar.
It was quite a discovery for someone with humble roots and no obvious career prospects but those new possibilities led to a passion for business that drove him on to succeed.
It was certainly not a path for the faint-hearted. It involved learning from scratch alongside his day job and sometimes even working for free just to get some insight from professionals. But, piece by piece, Samuel gained experience, negotiated deals and learned how to maximise profits.
One of his early techniques involved buying cheap houses and refinancing them to retrieve the money invested, often renting them as multiple lets to secure a regular income. He still teaches that strategy today and now has years of experience to back it up.
Having made millions while still in his 20s, Samuel’s main message to potential investors is a simple one: “If I can do it, so can you.”
All walks of life
Former trainees from diverse backgrounds testify to his claim and share success stories ranging from university graduates ditching their plans to change direction to professionals swapping careers later in life.
To hear some of Samuel’s tips on starting out and staying on top in a competitive sector, you can meet him in Birmingham when he hosts a deal-selling crash course on Saturday, December 9.
Topics on the day will include how to find bargain property deals, engage effectively with landlords and estate agents, expand an investors list and create branding that stands out from the crowd.
