If you pick up any rich list anywhere in the world, you will rarely find someone who got there by working hard in a job.

They’re not saving as much as they can and then giving their money to someone else to invest for them.

Whilst that strategy is better than what 95% of people do, it’s probably not going to give you the option of early retirement with an exciting cash stream that gives you that deep sense of financial comfort that most of us crave.

That level of deep financial security usually comes to those who have learned the art of manufacturing wealth rather than waiting for it through natural economic growth.

I call these people “Money Masters” because they are in control of their wealth creation rather being at the mercy of the markets.

Create Don’t Wait

In my observation, Money Masters do one, some or all of the following:

  1. Create Business
    • They create businesses and in doing so they get paid three times, not one. First they earn a salary. Second, they make a profit. Third, they build equity as the business becomes more valuable over time.
  1. Study Assets
    • They study a variety of paper, fixed and digital assets. If they invest into these assets, they do it directly or through active specialists like Hedge Fund Managers, ETF operators and other actively managed vehicles with a particular theme or focus that supports their own well educated views, values and tastes.
  1. Buy & Renovate
    • They buy and renovate properties to create value within months, rather than just sitting and waiting for the market to grow.
  1. Middlemen
    • They don’t give their money to a passive money managers and read their statements once a year.
  1. Create Value
    • They go into property deals knowing precisely how they will create value in other ways (outside of renovation) that will increase the property’s value by tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in relatively short order. They then redraw on that value and go again!
  1. Shares
    • They often have shares in their own companies that are worth more after 10 years than most employees have in superannuation or their retirement accounts after 40-50 years of working for
      other people.
  1. Create & Sell
    • They create and sell small property developments and make the margin themselves rather than buying properties at retail prices from property developers and waiting for the market to create their upside in time.

After years of studying those who have built real and lasting financial strength, those are just some of the common traits I’ve observed.

So, how Do You Start to Become A Money Master?

And What Should You Invest In First?

Before I get into that, you should know that I am NOT a financial planner and I have no formal degrees in finance, economics or any formal qualifications of any kind around finance.

I’m a public school educated, grade 12-only graduate with average marks.

I know nothing about your financial circumstances and you should always seek professional advice before making any decisions about your money.

Also, the results I will share with you are not typical at all.

Most people get what I would consider to be very poor results in almost all investments they make, so please don’t expect that just because I did something, you will too.

I have spent years studying these things and I have lost loads of money through doing stupid things before I got the results that I will share here.

Further, I have no idea about what skills you possess, how much capital you have and what you will choose to do if you start down any of the paths I will share with you.

So with that said, let’s get stuck in…

Tax Free Money
To Grow Your Wealth…

I Built My Fortune In Three Phases

1.

I built businesses.

2.

I invested in real estate.

3.

I bought shares/stocks.

For me, I knew that to get to where I wanted to be, I had to make more than what almost any job would pay me, especially given that I had no trade or professional qualifications.

So first I learned to sell, and then I learned to start businesses because in a business there was no limit to my income.

After that, I began investing in real estate.

The first reason I love real estate is because compared to any other asset class, banks were more willing to give me money to buy it.

When you’re starting with a small amount of money, that really matters!

Here’s something that one of my mentors Robert Kiyosaki says…

Don’t miss this…. 

“A loan from a bank is tax-free money. To save a $100K deposit for a $500K piece of property, you probably have to earn $500K when you account for tax and the cost of living along the way, and it will take most people a few years to do it. When the bank gives you a $400K loan to put with your $100K in post-tax savings, it’s tax free and you get it right away.”

That is so simple but so insanely powerful.

When the fabric of your life is time, why wouldn’t you avail yourself of every legal and ethical advantage to fast-track your road to reliable passive cashflow?

It is for this reason that so many people start their fortune in property.

The second reason I love property is this…

Influence = Control

Here’s something REALLY important to understand and the second reason that I started in property before stocks…

It’s not just the ability to leverage into property that makes it so appealing to Money Masters, it’s the ability to physically influence it in order to create value.

With stocks, you may be able to spot a bargain but there’s not much you can do to influence an outcome except wait.

With property though, you can:

Paint it
Plant A Garden
Add A Room
Take A Room
Photograph It Better
Change The Tenants
Increase The Rent

Do any number of other things to add visible and numerically quantifiable value

In other words, there are loads of levers that are within your reach to CREATE wealth today rather than wait for it through market sentiment.

Once I understood these two factors, I began to see property in a whole new way and I began to play a game…

Wealth Is A Game Of Doubles…

Another of my mentors, Patrick Bet David, taught me the concept of wealth being a game of doubles.

Here’s how the game works…

The objective is simply to do deals where you double your money.

If you start with $10,000 dollars, it’s only seven doubles before you have a million dollars:

$10,000…
Double #1 = $20,000
Double #2 = $40,000
Double #3 = $80,000
Double #4 = $160,000
Double #5 = $320,000
Double #6 = $640,000
Double #7 = $1,280,000

Learning to double your money is so simple yet most people have no idea how to do it.

Instead they settle for single digit returns for decades and wonder why they don’t ever achieve that deep and fulfilling knowing that they never have to worry about money again.

What if you could change that?

What if you knew how to double your money (or close to it), time and time again?
How would that change your life and investment results?

A Real (Recent) Property Double…

I recently purchased this piece of property in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast for $1.9M.

It was generating $140,000 a year in net income when I bought it and there were three tenants.

When I worked it out, the average rate that the tenants were paying was $110/m annually.

Because I had studied the area, I knew that this was WAY below what comparable buildings in the area were renting for and I also knew that all three leases were coming up for renewal within six months.

This situation is what I call a “rental arbitrage deal” – and they are more common than you’d think.

They happen when one or both of the following happen:

  • The owner hasn’t raised the rent in a number of years or they haven’t enforced rental increases
  • The leases were signed years ago and the market has moved a lot

Believe it or not, all I did in this deal was renegotiate the leases and within 18 months, the building began earning me a little over $200,000 a year net.

What also changed in that time is that the property market tightened and yields dropped meaning that buildings with tenants became more valuable.

I won’t go into all of that here but in short, the higher rent and the slightly improved market conditions have resulted in a new valuation of about $3.3M.

So here’s the math…

$1.9M purchase + $100K in costs (stamp duty and legals) = $2M

35% deposit = $700,000 of my money into the deal + $1.3M in bank finance.

Cash flow = $200,000

Debt @ 3% on $1.3M = $39,000/year

Free cashflow = $141,000 ($200K rent minus $39K in interest payments)

$141,000 in free cashflow each year from
$700,000 in capital = 20.1% return on my capital annually

$3.3M (current value) – $2M (purchase price) = $1.3M paper profit

$1.3M profit on $700,000 of capital = Almost a doubling of my capital

Crazy right?

For many people, $140,000 in free cashflow would go a long way to retiring them and I was able to get there from just $700,000 in capital.

While we’re on cashflow, when was the last time you saw over 20% annual return anywhere?

These Are The Types Of Commercial Property Deals That I Want
To Teach You To Do!

Most people are familiar with how to invest in residential property.

We’ve all watched TV shows on renovating for profit…

We’ve all been to at least one seminar or webinar on residential real estate investing…

But very few everyday people understand investing into commercial property.

Before I jump into why I buy commercial, I want you to understand that you DON’T have to start with $2M deals like the one above.

You can start much smaller than that and as you’ll discover in a moment, you can start by doing deals with others which will lower your exposure and give you the benefit of having other smart people working with you while you’re learning.

To help you learn the process of investing into commercial property, I have put together an online training program as well as a private community of commercial property enthusiast and investors to help you get started wisely and with the help of other educated people.

But before I get to that, I want to explain why I buy commercial and importantly, why I buy mostly only one type of commercial property.

Not all commercial property is created equal…

Like everything in life, if we want great results, we cannot afford to be general in our approach.

You don’t just marry any man or women, you marry someone who has a specific set of traits.

The same goes for commercial property.

Right now, I believe that for small investors, there are some really dangerous types of commercial property that I personally avoid.

Here’s a screenshot from RealCommercial.com.au which is Australia’s largest sales platform for commercial property.

It shows how they categorise every type of commercial property on their platform:

In today’s world, both retail shops and offices are under a lot of pressure!

Online selling is killing brick and mortar retailers and the virus transformed the way the world works.

Companies everywhere are reducing their office foot prints and allowing people to work from home at an alarming (but mostly welcomed) pace.

These trends are causing downward pressure on the value of both office and retail spaces.

There are always exceptions, but as a rule, those categories of commercial property need to be carefully assessed before investing.

Let’s look at the less obvious categories…

Having bought commercial land and started down the path of becoming a developer, I can tell you, developing is not a wise place to start unless you have someone with development experience working with you directly.

Between permits, planning, approvals, builders, drainage, head works charges and more, it’s a LOT.

But what I REALLY don’t like is that you have no return on your capital during the development process (which can take a year or more) and then you have to find the tenants to make money at the end.

Next…

Hotel and Leisure assets are what I call active investments because the revenue comes from the business and not just the building.

These are businesses rather than semi-passive real estate investments.

I do own a large commercial asset in this category but I have a business partner who runs things day-to-day.

Without his extensive experience and a strong personal friendship that goes back years, I would never have done it.

Then there’s farming and rural.

For most city slickers, unless you know farming, I would avoid these asset classes because they’re a whole different ball game.

That leaves:

  • Warehouses / Factories/ Industrial
  • Showrooms & Bulky Goods
  • Medical and Consulting

The reason I like these property types is that they can be tenanted by all kinds of different businesses, and in most cases, those types of businesses will always need physical space.

In my portfolio of industrial assets for example, I rent to gyms, trade wholesalers, eCommerce companies, a church, agricultural services companies, a mechanic, bulky goods retailers and more.

The key to any type of commercial property is making sure that your property is appealing to as many types of tenants as possible, who are in industries that are not in imminent decline.

Once you know what type of commercial property you want to buy, you can then start availing yourself of all the other benefits of commercial investing such as:

 

  • 3, 5 or even 10 year leases so less chopping and changing between tenants.
  • Contracted fixed annual increases so your income goes up with inflation.
  • All expenses (outgoings) paid by the tenant.
  • Less emotional buyers and sellers. It’s all about income.

Three Things That Can Make You A Fortune In Commercial Property

In my online program, I teach three very powerful commercial property strategies all of which I learned by simply doing it myself over a number of years

1.

Rental Arbitrage

(as shown in the deal above)

2.

Area optimisation

(optimising space to increase yield)

3.

Renovation

(improving the property to increase the per square meter rate)

These three strategies, combined with a sound understanding of the important fundamentals of what drives value in commercial property investing have made me millions.

The good news is, the first two require almost no dirty work (heavy construction work) and with renovating, commercial properties are simple compared to houses.

There’s fewer rooms…

There’s less bathrooms…

Kitchens are super simple…

Gardens are less elaborate…

There are no pools…

There’s usually just an office and a big open warehouse area!

But here’s the best bit…

In commercial property, the number of people creating value through it is minimal because most people have no idea how to do it.

There’s no equivalent of “The Block” or “House Flippers” TV shows teaching the whole world!

For this reason, standing out is much easier which is important when outcomes to securing great tenants.

Check this property out by way of example:

This is one of my properties that I bought in 2020.

It’s got two tenants and it generates about $110,000/year after expenses.

If this was a residential house, surely the seller would have gone to Bunnings and spent a couple of weekends tidying up these basic things before taking it to market right?

Who wants to buy a house with a *lovely* blend of baby-poo yellow, faded red, lime green and army green colours?

Amazingly, you see this kind of thing all the time in commercial!

And therein lies the upside.

As I am writing this we are:

Adding A Security Fence
Pulling out and replanting the gardens
Repainting the property
Replacing the parking bollards
Adding clear parking signs for each tenancy
Repainting the parking lines
High-pressure cleaning the car park

None of that is expensive…

None of it is hard…

None of it requires council approval…

None of it stops the income coming in while we do the work…

Just these few simple things are transforming the look and feel of the property which will allow us to increase the rent when we enter new leases.

In this case, the leases are (not surprisingly) way under market.

Remember the rental arbitrage strategy I already showed you?

Very soon, we expect that this property will be returning just under $200,000 a year (up from $110,000/year) and it will have made us more than $1M in capital gains as well.

Are you adding this up as we go?

If you are, yes, just these two properties are on track to earn me around $400,000 a year in semipassive income, not to mention the estimated $2M or so in equity gain – all in less than 3 years.

This is what I mean by CREATING VALUE rather than waiting for markets.

So, What’s In The Course And How Much Does It Cost?

Firstly, this course is what I call an “on-the-streets” program.

It wasn’t shot in a studio.

I didn’t take a film crew with me.

I shot almost all of it myself and lots of it was shot on the streets on a selfie-stick as I take you around both properties that I own myself and examples of commercial properties owned by others.

I spend a fair bit of time in front of a simple whiteboard where I unpack the key principles that I’ve spent years to learn and I didn’t spend hours making fancy slide decks.

This program is kind of like what you might experience if you dropped by my house and asked me to teach you everything I know about commercial property over the course of a few days.

I’d show you stuff on a whiteboard and then we’d get in the car and go and see it in real life.

If you’re looking for a highly produced “shiny” program with professional lighting, pretty graphics and clever animations, this isn’t the course for you.

So what IS in it?

Ready? Let’s go…

The Basics
The basics of commercial property and why I call each building a “Money Box.” This lesson will change the way you think about those dirty commercial buildings you drive past every single
day.
Setting Goals
How to set clear goals specifically around your commercial property investments. Most people simple don’t understand what to count, much less what they’re shooting for.
Property Strategies
Deep diving into my three key commercial property strategies. Rental arbitrage. Space optimisation. Simple renovations.
Real Deals
What is yield and why it’s a key component of almost every commercial property transaction. Inot only teach you the concept of yield but I show you real deals that I’ve done and howlearning to spot yield disparities has made me a small fortune.
How To Research
How to use RealCommercial.com.au like a pro. Property alerts, filtering, data tracking and more. This training will apply to almost every commercial property portal globally.
Due Dilligence
How to do rental due diligence before you go shopping for a property. Without you doing this work, you may end up buying something that nobody wants to lease!

Residential Vs Commercial

Residential V Commercial Property and a deep dive into the numbers that make all the
difference.
NLAs
What NLA is and why it can be one of three extremely powerful ways to easily create significant cashflow and equity gains in commercial property. Again, I show you how I’ve applied this knowledge in real deals that I’ve done personally and I show you the buildings.
Regional Vs City

Regional V city-based commercial property investing. What you need to be careful of with regional investments on both the mathematical and practical side of things.

Income Maximisation

Income maximisation and simple hacks to achieve it. This is not rocket science but it does require a good lawyer and little bit of planning.
Micro Locations
The art and importance of micro-location. Put simply, the exact spot you buy in (down to the street number) and a small set of other considerations like topography can make a massive difference to your resale value and income during ownership.
Golden Pockets

How to find “golden pockets” of high-upside commercial properties. These are usually small and well established (old) commercial precincts that are packed with properties that are ideal for my three strategies. Again, I show you several from the street level and what makes them awesome. Once you learn this, you’ll know why old is sexy and why ugly is awesome.

Sidestep Mistakes

How to avoid “white elephants” – those properties that no matter who goes there, everyone goes broke!
My Formula
My formula for spotting rough diamonds, including real examples shot from the streets around where I invest.
Construction Types

How different construction types affect how much you can earn. Steel sheds V tilt slab
(concrete) construction V other material types.

Frontages

Frontages that transform appeal and rents. In this section I take to the streets and show you real examples of how simple frontage renovations can set your property apart from almost everyone else, and mostly they are done on shoe string budgets.
Build Your Team
Who you need on your property team to win. Put simply, you can’t do everything on your own and you need a great team to win.
Leases

What you need to know when creating them and how they can have a substantial impact on the value of your properties when you come to sell

Locked-In Value

The non-obvious factors that affect how buyers value the income that you have locked in via your leases. It’s not just the income that determines what your end price will be.
Replacement Value
How to value properties based on replacement value and not just income. Investors will use one or the other or both.
Building Property

Why I don’t build commercial property. In this section I do a deep dive into a real piece of commercial land that I bought and the numbers on the development itself.

Types Of Deals

What types of deals can be done with other investors, ranging from partnerships, syndicates, unit trusts, company structures and more.
Finding Partners
How to find partners to invest with.
Building Partnerships

How to build functioning property partnerships that can act quickly to secure projects, while having clear mandates in place for the work to be driven by an appointed person or entity to avoid time wasting and inefficient value creation. This is KEY if you don’t have enough cash to get started on your own.

Selling Deals
How to find deals for others and get paid for doing so.

And much more!

In addition to all of the above, you will meet my own highly-experienced commercial property lawyer (he is interviewed in this program) and we discuss a variety of structural considerations and risks that can be avoided through proper structuring.

But The Online Course
Is The Least Of It…

This Program Includes 12-Months Access To Our
Private Online Support Group And Investor Community.

Here’s what I’ve learned after years of selling online courses.
Knowledge is not power.

Implementation is.

When it comes to implementation, nothing comes close to people being in a properly supported community of like-minded people.

For that reason, this program is structured differently.

Students pay a joining fee (detailed below), which includes lifetime access to the online course as well as 12 months access to our private support and investor network.

This group is where you will see real deals unpacked and where you’ll be able to make contact with other people from around the world who are interested in investing in commercial property deals.

Like Napoleon Hill said,

“Deliberately seek the company of people who influence you to think and act on building the life you desire.”

The Investment…

The fee to own this program and participate in the support and deal community for the first 12 months is USD $3,997 (Inc GST).

Alternatively you can make 4-payments over 4 consecutive months of USD $1,249 (inc GST).

The fee to stay in the community beyond the first 12-months has not yet been decided as this is the first year, but it will not be more than the initial fee and will most likely be slightly less.

This will depend on how the community develops, what resources are required to run it well, and the value that people derive from it over time.

This program is extremely good value relative to massive opportunity and upside available in the commercial property space.

I hope you choose to join me in learning this skill which has brought me so much joy and success over the years!
