In 2010 I bought a run-down property in Hackney. With almost no real estate experience, I hired the first builder that came to quote. Now seven years later and still living in that gorgeous area, I have built up a property portfolio of over 15 projects, with many more completed last year. In November 2016, we raised £1,400,000 on the first of five crowdfunded projects to date. Since then we have raised a further £4,280,000. It’s been a complete blast!

But I’m only getting started. This year I have a brand new podcast speaking to brilliant leaders and partners in the industry; we’re doing tours of our developments, events and my book went to #1 on Amazon in three categories. I’ve had a huge amount of help to get to this point and I’m so thrilled to be here doing what I’m really passionate about, and, hopefully, inspiring others to do the same.
