HMO Success Podcast Episode 59: Creating cashflow and a legacy in HMOs with Jane Vincent from The Fold Co-Living

Some guests on my podcast are very good at self-promotion and love being interviewed. Others are a little more wary! 

Often it's the quiet investors who build their business brick by brick, and in so doing create thousands of pounds of income for themselves, and a legacy for their family. One such investor is Jane Vincent, who, since joining the HMO Success Mentoring Programme, has steadily built her HMO portfolio to over 50 rooms which she manages herself. If you want to know what success looks like from someone who is not prone to over-exaggeration or bragging, whilst still finding time to help in her husband's engineering business and play a serious game of tennis, then Jane is your woman!

I especially like her brand, her approach and her down-to-earth practical tips to help if you are just starting out.

HMO Success Podcast Episode 57: Where attention goes, energy flows and results show. The role of good nutrition in HMO investing.

This week I get to interview James Morehen, who is the Lead Performance Nutritionist for the England Women's Senior Squad at the Football Association (and my personal sports nutritionist). Fuelling your body to be the best performing vehicle it can be takes knowledge, commitment and understanding. James shares his top tips about nutrition to enable you to have ongoing stamina, positive mental health and a full tank of energy - all necessary if you're building a property business. It's not just performance athletes who need to take care of what they eat - we all do!

James gives advice on the Three Ts of nutrition; how to maintain energy during the day and avoid that mid-afternoon slump; how to eat carbs without getting fat; and the role of supplements. James has a doctorate in sports nutrition so he really knows his stuff, and he's worked with people at the top of their game. 

Being able to apply this kind of knowledge to your own life as you build a profitable HMO business is what I wanted to know all about, and here James shares some of his best tips to help you achieve a healthy body and healthy business. 

Alongside his public work, James takes on a few selected clients each year. If you would like to enquire about his services and how he can help you change your eating habits to change your energy then please contact him  at morehenperformanceltd@gmail.com

HMO Success Podcast Episode 56: No BS - Richard Nicholls from The Property Advantage shares his unique full market insight on HMOs.

One of the more lively personalities in the HMO investment space is Richard Nicholls. He has one distinct advantage - his role takes him all over the country seeing the best and the worst of HMOs. He has unique knowledge about the HMO industry and what is happening right here and now on the ground in HMOs. 

In this episode I had the pleasure of interviewing him about his HMO brokerage, The Property Advantage, and his insider information - gleaned from months of viewing hundreds of HMOs up and down the country.

If you've ever wanted to know where the best returns are, whether room rates North and South are roughly comparable, and whether feature walls really make a difference, you'll want to listen to the NO BS HMO informant!

HMO Success Podcast Episode 55: When training for the London Marathon is like running an HMO business!

Did I mention that I got into the London Marathon this year? Yes, October 3rd is the date and I'll be running my little socks off to get through those 26.2 miles. I've realised that my training is not dissimilar from running an HMO business, and in this episode, I'd like to share the parallels. 

Whether or not you're a runner doesn't matter. What matters is the lessons you can learn from this (rather slow plodding) runner and help you in your growth as a property entrepreneur!
