a newbie investor, one of the best things that APIA has done and continues to do for me is keep me informed of changes in the property investment space
so that I can better prepare myself to come out on top.
I love hearing from all types of investors through APIA – new or well experienced. I am an avid learner. A geek even. There are nuggets of information
and ah-ha! moments every time I tune into a webinar, pop over to a networking mixer,
attend one of the keynote meetings and read the Friday 5s emails. My life is brimming with great
information about property because of them.
Although I had paid for and gone through a separate property mentorship programme, I’ve always felt that it is important to be with like-minded people
on a regular basis. For me, these are regular Kiwis who choose to use property as a vehicle to achieve their versions of financial freedom. Being part
of the APIA opportunity gives me that opportunity to connect with a variety of investors I would otherwise not be able to.
The biggest lesson I’ve learnt about property investment is that it is more than putting money in a house, it is owning and operating a people business.
I’ve made the decision long ago to surround myself with people who can lift me up rather than push me down. That’s why I continue to be an active member
of the APIA. My hope is that we continue to bring joy, inspiration and positivity to Auckland property investors. Boy! Don’t we need a bit of that
