Introduction from Nicky
Here’s to a happy and successful 2016! I am sure, like me, many of you have been pouring over budgets and business plans in readiness for the year ahead. It’s a lot of work! Valuable time spent though so I am determined to make sure it doesn’t end up in my bottom draw and never seen again.
It is for this reason Pete Wilkinsons “One Page Action Plan” is so valuable. Taking your business objectives and translating them in to achievable goals that can all be reviewed on one page. I interviewed him for this month’s four-i, and he explains how we can ‘achieve more by focusing on less’, sharing proven habits that enable us to achieve our goals.
2016 is sure to be an interesting year as the increase in stamp duty for second purchases comes in to play, increasing pressure on sales progression and solicitors as buyers push to beat the stamp duty hike. Are you ready?
It seems a long time ago but just last month our biggest event of the year took place – EA LIVE and the Estate Agency of the Year Awards. Nick Salmon, MD at Property Industry Eye, writes his overview of the event and key lessons learned.
‘Tip of the Month’ is a regular feature from one of our mastermind members, this month is three for the price of one as Richard Palfreeman, MD at Northfields, shares with us his top three tips for the New Year.
2016 sees new offerings from the Property Academy as we launch Leadership Summit, Mastermind and Membership. Designed for business owners and directors looking to grow their businesses and fulfill their potential, you can find out which tier is for you here.
I hope you enjoy this months four-i. Wishing you a fantastic start to the year.
