    Martin Ayles

    What did you think of Martins Audio and Video links, I enjoyed listening to it and it was certainly food for thought.

    the full story of how he managed to go from gladwrap to glamwrap would be interesting..

    He has a great little book called You need a Rocket, i sent him a email asking where i could buy it and he sent it to me for free which was pretty impressive, not so much about property but taking action, well worth the read.

    Like Robo, I asked Martin were I could buy his book and he kindly posted me two signed copies for free. I have given one copy to someone who also appreciated it.

    I aspire one day to be in a similar position to that of Martin i.e Finically and time generous.

    Cheers,

    I guess most of you have been aware that Martin is conducting a one day workshop in Melbourne on Sunday, 5th march 2006. If interested, please give 03 8892 3800 a call for booking, if there are still some spare seats available.

    Cheers,

    I just listened to the Audio– I really cannot believe that Martin would not have been aware of the value of the demolition content in the property that he developed in Adelaide and if he was not aware of such an elementary factor in buiding/ developing he would not be someone to whom I would pay money for his seminar. I suspect he put that in so as to appear like an average Joe– “Anyone can make money developing” – to cast the widest net.

    Magellan,
    Having met Martin and spent time with him, I highly reccomend going to see him. The important thing to remember is that this is a guy who actually does as he says! Yes he is finacially well off. But he has the same fears as you and me and invariably has made the same mistakes that we will.
    For this reason he is an excellent resource, who can genuinly stand in front of you and show you exactly what he does now and what he has done wrong!
    In my opinion he is just an average joe smo. Nothing special. Except for his amazing success with property. He is very straight forward and gets an A+ for honesty (believe me if you ever meet the bloke you will understand).
    Can I also say (just as my opinion)that he has reached a point where he has more money then he knows what to do with it. I have no doubt in my mind he is not reliant on this seminar for income! More likely has reached a point where he wants to give something back!

    I agree with the above, but why ruin a good story?

    I’m sure you also wouldn’t want to be advocating paying backpackers “cashies” to help demolish a house..how about insurance (amongst other things)[wink] if the backpackers got injured on-site?

    I think the story was for illustrative purposes only and to get a message across of finding additional funds amongst what many consider rubbish..I may be wrong as we only got a ‘snippet’ of the show?

    Yeah – we thought it was a great story – and showed that Martin doesn’t just yack on about how much money he makes, but talks about the learning experiences he has too.

    But yes – the moral of the story is that sometimes leverage costs you money.

    It wouldn’t be uncommon for a demolition team to take a couple of thousand in salvage (which I’m sure Martin didn’t mind – given how much he stood to make on the development).
    But what Martin didn’t realise (and I wouldn’t have either) was the value of the stone on the house.

    As for the backpackers, Martin mentions in the video that he doesn’t recommend it – but this is what the demolition guy ended up using.

    P.S. – There’s a Free 21-Minute audio recording around where Martin talks more about his development strategy.

    It helps to put the video in context – both were taken from this presentation Martin did at a recent MasterClass in Melbourne.

    I think this is another way of people making money by talking .
    I did not like what I read , I have developed a few places and the numbers have to be a lot better than that 2nd deal. I also do not belive he only put 20 hours into it, it takes 100s of hours just searchings for a property to develop.Even if he found the property easy it take so much time talking to planers councils builders banks accountants paper work admin all sorts.The list goes on and on.
    If he only sent 20 hours to make that money why run workshops the work involved would he be better off doing another deal.
    I dont know why steve is so impressed by what he has done ( or maybe its the kicks backs he is getting that he likes ).
    I ussally do not put people down and this is not my intention but paying to go to these events just seems a waste. If you really want to learn about it. Just have a go

    I found the book on sale ($2) about 6 months ago, and it has sat on my self since then. I’ve just started reading it, and it is not bad so far.

    Any gems of wisdom from the book Terry?
