Hustle your way to Property Success
About the Author
Paul Ribbons' remarkable journey started in E17. Educated at an inner London school and having undiagnosed dyslexia Paul struggled at school and eventually left without completing any of the exams.
After leaving school he worked within the baking industry and was always dreaming of a lifestyle he knew he could and one day would attain.
Paul reached the age of 23 and realized he had lived longer than his mother and this realisation had a profound effect as he made a decision never to accept mediocracy and to live everyday as if it were his last.
Paul took a gamble that was to change the direction of his life. He managed to "hustle" his way into estate agency where he spent 10 years learning his craft.
Here Paul learnt some of the most valuable things which he contributes to his success:
"1st this is a people business;
2nd the most valuable commodity I know is information; and
3rd it's the circumstances that reveal the opportunity that lead to good deals".
Paul became frustrated at the restrictions of working for other people and made the decision to go it alone.
Leaving estate agency, Paul pursued a career as an acquisition agent with a distinguished list of clients. Paul's skills continued to shine through. Paul's philosophy is simple, nothing is beyond any human being; you just have to want it bad enough and remember you're in the people business and never forget it.
Over the next 15 years Paul became involved in what the property investment industry calls BMV (below market value) type deals.
Having a great understanding of people and their needs Paul was then encouraged to share his knowledge, so he embarked on a speaking tour of property events across the country.
Paul's no-nonsense style was well received and he became in great demand. Paul now teaches hundreds of clients how to find properties that are profitable via the open market. In his seminars Paul's experience shines through, and the basis of his teachings? Understanding People.
In July 2011 Paul then wrote his book based upon his teachings and its title? Hustle your way to property success.
