HGTV personality Amy Mahjoory gets very real on the ups and downs in property and mastering strategic networking to fund her projects

EP75: Tearjerker alert! Amy really was such a lovely guest. I welled up, and so did she, as she opened up about the near-failure of her business and what she did to move on and learn from her mistakes. Clearly, it’s still raw but her humility and willingness to talk about provides us with such value. 

Also an HGTV presenter and best-selling author Amy Mahjoory who mastered the art  of strategic networking while in a corporate environment before transferring her skills to real estate. Over the last 8 years have raised over $16 Million in private money.  Amy also discussed her traditional roots and how she defied her family’s dream for her to pursue entrepreneurship. 

In this podcast we also discussed her journey with mentors and coaches in which a system Amy encourages that you can apply to yourself. Also how she transitioned from being a shy kid to being an extrovert and how this attitude propels her to greater heights.

About Amy Mahjoory:
Amy is an expert real estate investor and educator, best selling author, HGTV personality, networking coach, and keynote speaker. Before pursuing her passion in Entrepreneurship, Amy was a highly recognised global leader in procurement, logistics, and operations management for Dell. After 14 years in corporate America, Amy quickly realised that a traditional education combined with the security of a 9-5 was not going to produce the results she wanted to achieve. 

Amy’s success can be attributed, in large part, to her team-building talents and cutting-edge business systems. She focuses on surrounding herself with some of the most dynamic and dedicated entrepreneurs, mentors, peers, employees, and investors. Her training include Strategic Networking, Team Building, Problem Solving, Outsourcing, and Raising Capital. Amy has a genuine interest in helping others succeed. Most of her success originates from her belief in working smarter, not harder. Amy’s number one goal is to provide the absolute highest level of service to her clients.

Should you buy your own investment property or leave it to an expert? You wouldn’t take over from a pilot

EP74: Buying property is not as simple a process as shows such as Homes Under the Hammer would have you believe. Many people end up getting it wrong and end up overpaying or purchasing the wrong type of product for their area. The argument goes that you wouldn’t fly your own plane back from your holiday in Alicante so why not leave investment property buying to an expert too? 

In this podcast I talk to My Property Consultant founder Eyeedul Haque about time-poor professional and how he helps them invest in property. We also discuss his excellent one page summary of the many monthly property statistics which are published each month. We also discuss: 

  • How  My Property Consultant came about
  • What will happen to UK house prices
  • The MPC property index tracker
  • And the challenges in the housing market eg is there a housing crisis?

About Eyeedul Haque:

Eyeedul spent 20 years in financial services before setting up My Property Consultant, which is now 6 years old.  My Property Consultant is a boutique property buying agency and a property management service that offers an end-to-end process of raising finance, sourcing the property, overseeing the legal work, and then putting in tenants. Eyeedul spent 20 years building up his own property portfolio and now offers this as a proposition to others. He has a passion for skiing and he dreams to be based in the Alps and fly to the UK for meetings.

Siobhan Baker of Coding Black Females discusses the opportunities for women in STEM

EP73: In this podcast we talk about:

  • Leadership Team for Coding Black Females (largest community of black women in tech in the UK);
  • Mentoring and education events for children and young people with Inspiring the Future and STEM Learning UK; and
  • Coming from an Arts background I’m curiously engaged in the move to bring the Arts to STEM.

About Siobhan Baker:
Siobhan Baker first entered the tech industry in 2017, as the Community Manager for a social enterprise aiming to get more women into careers in tech. Whilst there she scaled their community offering to almost triple its size – delivering over 200 activities across the UK including free coding courses.

She left this role in 2018 to pursue a coding internship through Black Girl Tech and 8th Light, which was instrumental in preparing her for her current role (still with 8th Light) in full-stack software development.

In her own time, Siobhan is part of the Leadership Team for Coding Black Females, a
non-profit which supports Black females aspiring to and/or working in tech. She is also actively questioning how to blend her interests in art, philosophy, and coding.

When not doing that, she’s been escaping to her local park and woodlands for long solo walks in an attempt to combat her lockdown weight gain

Kohab, an intergenerational co-living venture bringing older and younger adults together to live side-by-side in mutual support

EP72: When I met Justin Shee a couple of years ago he had a very good idea. It wasn’t a unique idea per se, but his approach and the reasons behind it were. That idea was Kohab, an intergenerational co-living venture bringing older and younger adults together to live side-by-side in mutual support. The idea was influenced by Justin’s background as a musician and the way that music is one tool that can be harnessed by all generations to bring joy, friendships, and combat loneliness.

In this podcast we talk about:
– Kohab, what it does and where the idea came about;
– Their approach to conceiving of and designing around the needs of their customer;
– Loneliness as a topic and how it affects both older and younger people;
– The mutual benefits of older and younger people having strong relationships;
– The general movement towards social finance / ESG.

About Justin Shee:
Justin is the founder of The Kohab, an intergenerational co-living venture providing a new way for people across the ages to live together and support each other, just like we all used to.  They develop and operate schemes that are designed around the needs of the older population, but always provide a proportion of the units for younger adults to live in at affordable rents in return for being active participants in the community.  Based on successful European models, it has the potential to solve some of the big issues we face in society around isolation, loneliness, and age segregation. 

Justin founded the company in response to observing that many older people have an aversion to the age ghettos which retirement living creates, and a discontent with how we ‘deal with older people’ in society, born out of having grown up living with his grandfather

Making stuff happen in a world where nothing stands still with change strategist and author Neil Usher

EP71:  If you haven’t read Nick Usher’s second book Elemental Change: Making stuff happen with nothing stands still, now the right time. While it is written with a corporate workplace in mind it is applicable to all of us in a world of change. Interestingly while many say we don’t like change, just our desire for a better version of ourselves is a desire for change.

In this episode, workplace and change strategist Nick Usher shares his learnings from years of experience working with leaders and as a leader for change.  Among other things, we discuss Stoicism, fatalism, perpetual beta and “day two” planning. He also offers us his well-informed view on the famed saying “Leaders are born not made”.

About Neil Usher:
Neil Usher has wrestled with complex change problems for almost 40 years, solving them with a rare blend of straightforward and creative thinking together with an eye for both strategy and detail.

He brings a wealth of client-side management and leadership experience from around the world in a variety of industries. He has held senior roles at Warner Bros., Honeywell, Rio Tinto and Sky amongst others, and is presently Chief Workplace & Change Strategist at GoSpace AI, the first artificial intelligence application for the workplace. He has been actively blogging about work for over a decade and his first book The Elemental Workplace was published in 2018.

He is a sought-after conference and academic speaker, always bringing a fresh perspective while challenging assumptions and myths. That said, he prefers to be thought of as ‘a regular bloke just trying to make sense of it all’.
