Great to read your story, Lisa. Thanks for sharing.I come across many people who have no funds to invest in property, but I still encourage them to learn and see what other opportunities there may be within the property arena. Do you think it is important to think laterally, try and see opportunities where no one else can, and to just keep learning, even if you cannot see a way forwards? I think LEVERAGE is going to be a big word in (property) business soon. People will pay to leverage knowledge, but, more importantly, networks. (You obviously are arleady achieving this with PIPA forum!). I see very different business models emerging over the next few years and a lot of fall out.Today, at the Excel Investor Show, someone said, referencing the U.K. property market and interest rates, that "when you put meat in the freezer, it only gets rid of the smell". In other words, the low interest rates have not stopped the rot. I am inclined to agree with this and I think there is a lot more pain to come.Hopefully by sharing knowledge and supporting each other, the Tribe can help each other survive. I know you share this philosophy, so thank you for your generosity of sharing your knowledge and supporting others. We can all learn so much from you. x

Lisa,Thanks for sharing.Based on the timeline it sounds like we meet close to when you were getting started. All I can really remember was it was on the ExCel Centre trade floor for the Property Show. You were getting rolling with options at the time. I was thinking of the meeting Thursday when I was at the ExCel.John CoreyFollow me on Twitter-> https://www.twitter.com/john_coreyhttps://www.ChelseaPrivateEquity.com/blog
Lisa,We did spend a fair bit of time talking about wraps (AITDs), lease options and similar.I strongly remember it being at ExCel. Not sure why it is so clear. At the same time a mind can play tricks.It was not after being in OZ or NZ as I have never lived there. I had never even been there until 2006. I was living in London at the time but moving up to Chester or had just moved to Chester.I arrived in the UK in 1994 from the west coast of the US. Part of what we were discussing was my experience with the above topics for US deals.John CoreyFollow me on Twitter-> https://www.twitter.com/john_coreyhttps://www.ChelseaPrivateEquity.com/blog
