Thoughts from Belize

When I was away in Belize in Christopher Howard's Billionaire adventure club, I met many fascinating people who like you or I dreamed of earning enough money to become financially free... only they went one step further and are now some of the top earners in the world. It just goes to show that ordinary people can do extraordinary things.

While I was there, I met Gary Setterfield, a brilliant person and an amazing mindset coach. He has been speaking at a few of our Think Yourself Rich events and has been a tremendous success.

Read Gary's fascinating article below.

Property Really is a Mind Game
By Gary Setterfield

"We all know to make it successfully in property at whatever level you wish, not only is it about the numbers but equally important it's the mindset you have. There are the visits to the Agents to build those all important relationships. There are the numerous viewings, which have followed the hours of trawling various mediums to find those specific properties, which will provide you with the returns and or the cash flow you require.

Now before that process can start you need to have taken that first elusive step of making a decision to start. That's where it really begins, making the decision then taking the action. It doesn't matter how many properties you want in your portfolio everyone starts the same way with the process to buy the first one.

So what does it mean to have the right mindset? Firstly the majority of us never get it right from the start. Most of those who are successful in property and the same applies to life generally, have made mistakes on their journey to the top. In fact it's these mistakes which define the successes, providing we choose to learn from them and understand what the learning points might be in each situation. So with this in mind, once you have decided to make a start, remember it does not have to be perfect to get going. Taking the necessary first steps and actions, then refining the processes as you go forward, will eventually pay off.

Having taken those first steps in order to keep the momentum going you must keep focused. Know what you want to achieve, when you go into those negotiations with the agents or directly with the vendors. To make those meetings go smoothly try visualising in your mind how you would like the meeting to go. Run through what you are going to say and the responses you want to get back. Top athletes and sports competitors do this all the time before big races or events. They play out in their mind how they want the race or event to go. The mind cannot differentiate between fact and fiction. So programme it with the result you want to achieve.

The same goes for all those goals and dreams of success you have. Visualise exactly what you want in full sensory detail. See it in colour, what do you hear? How will it feel? What exactly is it you want? If you can visualise in detail, feel it, see it and the sounds that you associate with it, your subconscious mind will help you achieve it, because as far as it is concerned what you have visualised is real. Providing you are then taking the actions to move you towards that vision, then you will get there much quicker than just hoping, it might happen. Until next time, never under estimate the power you possess, to make what you want to happen, happen."

Berkshire Property Meet

I was at the Berkshire Property Meet this month and I must say that it was absolutely fantastic, with new fresh faces to the world of property investment. The first night was a smash hit, with all the places selling out within hours of being announced and the second shortly following. They even had to add a third date to the event which was incredibly unheard of.

Alternative Income Streams

I think that is always handy to dabble in some alternative income streams where you will earn extra cash. That's not a bad idea really is it? Successful entrepreneurs have shares in thousands of businesses which they call Alternative Income Streams. I've compiled a list of articles that you may find interesting.

Where to start on your
Alternative Income Stream

by Janie Acutt

My name is Janie Acutt and I have known Glenn Armstrong for some years having attended his property courses. He guided me through buying the buying process, which increased my portfolio to 20 properties. Glenn is an extremely focused and successful businessman who would not put his name to anything less than the best. Hundreds of business opportunities have been presented to Glenn over the years but he never found them to be the quality he expects in a business. A network marketing company launched in the UK in June 2009 and although unheard of by most people it is one of the top 20 network marketing companies in the world. I knew the quality would meet Glenn's expectations so I arranged to meet with him at his office earlier this month and began to present a 30 minute business plan. He cut it short at 12 minutes in and said, "Great, I love it!" So I am pleased to say that Glenn has joined and we look forward to sharing the opportunity with you at a webinar in a few weeks.

There is uncertainty as to how long the down economy will last and more than ever before people are searching for alternative income streams to alleviate the financial strain to their pockets.

When we think of alternative income streams there are several options that come to mind: Property rental, dividends from shares, small businesses, royalties from books, franchising and network marketing.

What I want to focus attention on in this article is network marketing, often referred to as word of mouth marketing or also known as a home-based business model. There is often a lot of stigma around network marketing and people's perceptions might be for instance:-

1. They have been unsuccessful in business, so put their failure down to the fault o the industry or the company they joined while failing to take owner ship for quitting themselves or not being teachable; or lack of drive or commitment to develop the passive income.

2. They heard that Uncle Fred had a friend who had a grandmother who tried one of those things in 1964 and failed.

3. They heard through someone who heard through someone that it was one the same as one of those pyramid things.

Network marketing, a $100 billion industry worldwide, has often been dismissed as a legitimate business model by the public even though it has been around for over 50 years.

I hope to open your mind to the fact that network marketing has now come of age.

It is not just becoming main-stream, it is becoming a dominant market trend and one that is gathering momentum.

Network marketing is taught as a legitimate business programme in many business schools and universities around the world. Dr Charles King who holds a PHD from Harvard and is a professor of marketing at the University of Illinois in Chicago talks about it in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7ieKX0LEtQ&feature;=player_embedded

Network marketing is a rising star in business today and many of the world's leading business men are jumping on board. Warren Buffet, Richard Branson and Donald Trump all own network marketing companies. The industry is counter cyclical. What does that mean? It means that in times of recession when everything is going down in conventional business, everything is booming in the network marketing business. There has never been a better time to consider finding a couple of hours a week to work on your network marketing business as an alternative form of income stream.

Right now is the perfect storm of opportunity and Glenn has attached himself to the most explosive business model (network marketing) in the largest and most exciting industry in the world. Glenn understands that he doesn't even need a piece of the pie to create incredible wealth with this particular network marketing business, all he needs is the goo that sticks to the knife that cuts the pie!


The plane is on the run-way and approaching for takeoff, heading toward the height of its ascent. The question is, do you want to remain on the tarmac or do you want to be on the plane?

See you at the webinar.

ILearning Global
by William Debauchez

Hello, William here!

Are you looking forward to Christmas?
How's your network marketing business doing?

The program I'm working on now is fantastic. Launched in March, it's backed by some very famous names and believe me the product is so easy to market it's unbelievable. There's no stock to hold, no paper application form. It's all online, and very straightforward. The people behind this are so famous it's a real breeze to present it, so I think you'll really enjoy the experience. And it pays well. It's got a fast start structure so that you get into green numbers quickly. I broke even on mine in less than 6 weeks and the first 2 weeks, I actually did not work that hard at it.

I don't promise you'll get the exact same results, but if you're in a program that pays too slow and is hard work, you should definitely consider a program with a promising future, where you can build a large down line and get into green numbers quickly.

The program is called iLearning Global, created by world famous motivational speaker Brian Tracy, and property Billionnaire Dolf DeRoos.

Working with me, you'll get access to squeeze pages I've predesigned and an autoresponder I'll be able to pass on so you can hit the ground running with your business. I'm also in the UK leadership team and can organize 3 way calls for you and your down line very easily and help further accelerate your business.

If you want to know more, just enter your details on www.ilgsystem.net

If you're interested in knowing more before everyone else, just me an email.
Warmest Regards.

An alternative 'armchair' investment
in UK property (from just £1000)...

Heritage Capital agree a deal with Glenn Armstrong
to source discounted properties for fund.

For those of you looking to profit from the UK Residential property without the need for large deposits, the hassle of sourcing discounted property or even taking out a mortgage, then you might find the answer in a Property Fund. With potential returns of over 50%, a fixed term (3-5 years) and low entry from just £1000, they can be a fantastic way to invest and reap the benefits of the property market with none of the hassle...

Heritage Capital recently approached Glenn with a view to sourcing discounted property for their UK Residential Property Funds - the first of their kind to be offered to retail investors. Property Funds have been around for a number of years, but are usually restricted to investors with £25,000 plus to invest, or have focus on commercial property. The Heritage Capital model is of particular interest as the property market doesn't even need to rise during the term for a healthy profit to be made, so the risk to your capital is low.

Alison Guyton of Heritage Capital says "The key to delivering these returns is the ability to source good discounted property that can achieve a high yield, so it made sense to approach Glenn to source for one of our funds as he is achieving this week in week out for his current investors with some of the best yields in the country"

The model is based upon the fund buying at discount, then renting and managing the properties for a fixed term, before selling the portfolio and returning profits to investors (shareholders) within a fixed term of 3 to 5 years. The better the discount and yields, the higher the return to the investors - and of course any capital growth across the 3-5 years offers even more profit.

Glenn says "I really like Heritage Capitals model, and the fact that it is an FSA compliant fund. The returns to investors are better, even with no growth in the property market, than other investments from just £1,000. To combine our buying power, local market knowledge and lettings management with the Heritage Capital Fund expertise seems like a perfect fit"
