Here are some highlights from the discussion:
What attracted you to the world of property investment?
I had a corporate career but always had a desire to start my own business. So, I started off in 2006 with one of my first businesses, as a photographer. I guess it was a bit of timing for me because we were moving from film to digital and because I was quite into tech, I moved straight to digital and was able to capture the high-end Asian wedding market.
What really got me into property and investing was when I would sit and talk to the families about their inspiring journeys… and the message that came across was the importance of investing in property. That stuck with me.
Is it important to have a particular frame of mind for investment?
The number one investment anybody can make is to invest in themselves, their mindset, their personal development. What my advice would be is read – there’s fantastic books on mindset. One book that I always recommend ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ by Robert Kiyosaki, which is a very good book that explains financial investments.
Podcasts and YouTube are also fantastic resources, the , being a good example of that. Also, speak and network with people in the know. So, develop the positive habits that allow you to develop a stronger and more open mind and the opportunities will definitely present themselves.
