The Custodian Clients Journey – Hear their stories, challenges and achievements. Short movie with a range of clients interviewed at a Client event.
Really. we’ve just had to sort of step up and go hey we do believe in what we’re doing. And eventually what’s happened is we’ve sort of been leaders in this financially and then people have followed. And people at work at my work and our friends and family have sort of said hey you know what are you guys doing, cause it’s obviously working. I mean you’re duplicating you’re doing all the stuff that sort of is out of the reach of the average person like theoretically, but the fact is that it isn’t. And mom and dad have just come on board with their first Custodian purchase so, we’re really impressed with that. And I guess, yeah it’s just taking that step up, and saying you know we do believe in this and it doesn’t matter if we don’t fit in to the average investors any more, we’ll keep duplicating. I guess, we just have faith in that what we’re investing in is solid rock and without a doubt that’s going to you know produce the right outcome at the end of the day.
I guess starting has been one of the biggest issues that we’ve found getting started getting the right information to get the right product to be able to start how to finance it and all of those questions that are very difficult to answer unless you get the right information. But getting started, once we got started, we found then that we were able to, we slowly built some momentum and we’re able to duplicate successfully based on the growth that we previously obtained from out first property and then the second property and you know we found that a very very successful process and programme and that’s been a joy really.
Custodian system it saves me a lot of time, it saves me a lot of hassle and I suppose one thing I’ve learned through running a business is that you need to leverage off others expertise and Custodian have the expertise and the system in place, so that I’m simply using that as leverage to build my own portfolio of properties.
I think the main issue is you’ve just got to do it. You can go through all the analysis, you can get every scenario that you like to put up and they all come out positive anyway, but at the end of the day you’ve just got to do it. You’ve got to you know put your confidence in the people that you’re working with and the Custodian programme. And just go and do it and start and then keep duplicating. Now for me analysis gives you the confidence to actually go on, and it gives you the flexibility to be able to know, what you can develop and how far you can push things as well. So by analysing by knowing where you are, what’s driving you you can move on and do more things and push the people that you’re working with to get the results that you want. Spending time with people getting to know the people that you’re working with, making sure that they’re aware of where you’re coming from what you’re trying to achieve and so that when you pick the phone up or when you send a name out to them they know you they know you’re at the end of the line, and they know you won’t go away and they know what you are trying to achieve.
Goal setting is so important. I’ve come to realise over the years that without setting goals you really can’t move forward to anything you know big in life. And I’ve been setting goals for a number of years. Both Kera and I set goals, a really big goal of 20 properties over 12 years and we’re half way now and that’s only happened because we’ve set a big goal. And it’s not just setting a goal, it’s working towards that goal, setting smaller goals along the way it’s so important. We both get up in the morning early, we meditate we visualise we do all the things that we know of that will work and I think we’re seeing the fruits of our labour now and we know, we absolutely know that we’re going to achieve our goal in that 12 year period, we’ll have 20 properties in fact we might even have more.
It’s very important to know what you’re doing and I would recommend that you read “The Seven Steps to Wealth” by John Fitzgerald because there’s a lot of information there that you need to know when you are actually buying a property especially for investment. Secondly, you need to manage your own thoughts. It’s very important because many times I have thought to myself that I can’t do it, I won’t be able to do it or I’m not good enough, but being able to get over that and say, you know I’ve got a structure and I know it works and I believe in it and go for it. And thirdly, manage your finance. Cash flow is very important. I’ve got a little saying that I’ve picked up lately, and what it says is that for those who can and those who can not are separate by the size of their thoughts.
I mean you’ve got all those things saying you know you’re too old you’ve gone past it you can’t do it, and I think a lot of us don’t believe that we can go past our beliefs and I’ve learnt that you can, and there is always fear involved, but you take a step past the fear and do what you like. My father grew up in an era where debt was bad and he taught me that you shouldn’t have any debts, and I had to learn the difference between good debts and bad debts. Ones that were growing and ones that were just you know wasting your time. And we’ve had eight properties now, but we got to 12 and I’ve had to sell off a couple to achieve our retirement goals, and I’m now looking at my next goal of 16 properties.
It’s very important that we both understand the process we have to go through to reach our goals, and to reach 12 properties in the next 10 or 12 years to retire comfortably.
