Anyone known as an authority in their field could generally charge a substantial amount for sharing their expertise. But asking a fee of just £1 to join an all-day course is how one man prefers to do business.

If you've ever wondered if property investing might pay off, that's the small price you'll need to pay to hopefully gain some valuable insight and decide whether or not it's the right path for you.

The one-day crash course will be delivered this month by Property Investors founder Samuel Leeds who runs a training academy for people hoping to earn a living from bricks and mortar.

His short courses serve as an introduction both to the industry itself as well as the intensive or advanced training the academy provides to those who want to take their interest further.

Property millionaire

They cover a host of topics from property investment basics to the specific strategies that Samuel uses day to day in his own business affairs – including the ones that made him a millionaire.

Depending on theme of the course, attendees can expect to learn about the different types of finance they can raise to get started, how to choose the best investment properties plus the secret of pitching well to seal a deal.

Samuel will be hosting a course in Birmingham this month with a focus on rental homes and houses of multiple occupation (HMOs).

Rental income

He'll explain the rent-to-rent strategy that he uses to make a regular passive income, the responsibilities that come with rentals and the legal pitfalls to avoid. He’ll also assess live deals on the day and give his audience the chance to do the same.

Samuel points out that beginning the journey as a property investor can be overwhelming because there's so much conflicting information about how to get started.

His answer to that conundrum is to demonstrate what works for him. And, with a well-documented story to tell, some potential investors may already know how the businessman’s journey began.

Learning some tricks of the trade

For those who don’t know, Samuel grew up on a West Midlands council estate and faced the challenging time of seeing his parents split up when he was only seven-years-old.

School for the youngster was no welcome distraction as he says he wasn’t very academic and struggled to concentrate in class. He eventually scraped just a few GCSEs and then left at the age of 16.

One big positive was working with his dad who was a magician and entertainer and had been teaching him the ropes. Samuel may have continued along that route because he enjoyed the work and thought it was fun.

But he also knew he wanted to earn more money than magic tricks alone would make so he took a practical view and decided to train as a plasterer as a back-up plan to give him options.

Potential for profit

His interest in property initially came about more by chance than by design as he gradually started to see the potential for profit in some of the homes he was working on.

Hearing occasional snippets about owners and landlords selling or renting at a profit appealed to the ambitious teenager and he set about to find out more.

One helpful source of information came from his stepfather who, with no mortgage left to pay on his own home, had started small scale investments in property. He was happy to share his knowledge of mortgages and finance and introduce the now eager learner to a property trainer.

Inspired by experts

Within a relatively short space of time, Samuel had enrolled on a business course and was eagerly reading books by a host of entrepreneurs and experts in finance.

Before long, he was picking the brains of property professionals and taking decisive steps towards his new career by offering to find deals and market and manage their houses.

His first purchase followed before his was 18, his portfolio steadily grew and, by the age of 25, he’d achieved millionaire status.

Now with around 15 years in the business, Samuel spends much of his time showing others how to achieve the kind of financial freedom that he did.
