Check this out team! 😍
We have done two charity fundraiser events recently (Property Trader Report) and we have hit our target and been able to buy a tap machine for Chained Dog Awareness! (Some left over too, going to 9-Lives Orphanage)

KEEPING YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME: Property Investment Success

What does mindset and personal development have to do with property investment and wealth creation?
AssetLab’s philosophy is to “Work harder on the INVESTOR than on the INVESTMENT”
Now I hear some people saying “Nope. We’re Kiwi’s. We don’t like flowery stuff mate; just give us the nuts and bolts and we’ll be ‘right”
If only that were true. It does seem that way on the face of it of course but the reality is far from it.
Let’s face it, most of the Property Education principles taught in NZ are not new. Most of the information can be found if you look hard enough; Books, Forums, Investor Associations, Good ol’ Google, it’s all out there. A lot of it for free.
AssetLab are in the business of Wealth Education so it may seem like we’re bias towards it. And you are right, we are.

Perhaps the most common question I get asked as a property investor is ‘what do you think the market is going to do?’ I will usually answer with something like ‘I have no idea what will happen, and I really don’t care.’ A couple of months ago I was invited along to a free two hour seminar put on by one of the major banks on property investment. The guy that was speaking had one property himself which he was now selling as he thought it was a good time to sell. The rest of the time was spent going through a whole range of meaningless graphs, charts, facts and figures explaining to us all what he thought might...

Getting Started in Property Investment by Graeme Fowler (2015)

Disclaimer: Nothing is this article is meant to constitute financial advice of any kind, and is the opinion of the author only. Seek professional advice before making any financial decision.
It’s now over 25 years ago that I got started in property investing, and I knew virtually nothing about property – except that I wanted to get rich from it!
I ended up losing about $40,000 on my first property, but luckily I did learn a lot from it.
I made many mistakes along the way and it was really no wonder as I was pretty clueless when it came to all things regarding property investing.
Back then, there wasn’t a lot of information around, so it was more of a trial and error thing for me for a few years. There wasn’t anyone I knew who I could ask about property or get their opinion about something, and virtually nothing written by NZers on the subject.
I remember a friend of mine inviting me to go see an older guy who...
