Separating the Experts from the Lucky Idiots

Separating the Experts from the Lucky Idiots

  30 Dec 2023

Today I’d like to share 2 interesting topics with you.

The concept for the first part of my chat came about from an email I received from a client who is confused.

She was wondering in a market that’s buzzing with self-proclaimed property investment gurus, how do you differentiate between genuine expertise and fortuitous luck?

We live in an era where overnight success stories often mask the hard realities of investing and understanding these nuances could be the difference between sustainable success and an unfortunate mishap.

Regular listeners would know that I usually have guests on this show, but every now and then I like to have a chat, just you and me, where I can share my thoughts and that’s what’s going to happen today as I’d like to give you my perspective on these overnight property millionaires.

And then I’m going to share quite a long mindset message, but I believe a really important one.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and be a successful property investor, or a successful entrepreneur, then this session will be for you, but please be warned it’s a little heavy.

And before you think Michael’s gone all metaphysical on me, please persist and listen to my thoughts because if I thought i could help you be more successful by showing the next property hotspot or another finance trick that’s what I would discuss- instead I’m going to let you into the secret of how you can get more success by changing.

Changing what you may be think – listen in and you’ll find out.
