Hello, I’m Julie Whitmore your host at the Manchester Property Investors Network (pin).
I wish you a warm welcome to our meeting held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month here at the Novotel in Worsley, Manchester.
I become seriously involved in property investing in 2011, although I had been buying and selling, and undertaking refurbishments, upgrades and enhancements since the age of 23, whilst also continuing to build my business knowledge and raising a family.
I started with standard single buy to lets’ in addition to some overseas’ property and then in 2013 was introduced to pin, through which I started to invest in my education and training, culminating with attending Simon Zutshi’s Mastermind Programme in 2014.
I then chose to leave my corporate job late 2014 to focus on my property business full time. I am actively continuing to build my portfolio through HMO’s, R2R’s, and other refurbishment projects.
I also work with investor’s wanting to get onto the property ladder and help them to build their own portfolio’s through providing turnkey managed solutions and projects.
From an early stage of my property education, one of my personal goals was to become a pin host as I wanted to help others achieve their dreams and ambitions and to improve their quality of life. From my own property experience I appreciated and understood the value of the knowledge I had gained and the power of the network I am part of,in addition to thebusiness knowledge I had gained from 30+ years’of corporate and small business experience.
The pin meetings are extremely informative, featuring industry leading key note speakers and local industry specialists’, and they offer great networking opportunities with contacts who can help you on your own personal journey.
