    In this episode of The James Sinclair Podcast I sit down with a guest who recently commented on one of our YouTube videos sharing his Dads struggle in business and how that affected his business decisions.

    Achieving Financial Freedom using Property - HMO's, Rent to Rent, Buy to Let and Serviced Accommodation

    02/09/2019 Duration: 50min

    Is it possible to achieve financial freedom using property? Specifically with HMO's, Buy to Let, rent to rent and serviced accommodation strategies? In this podcast I sit down with business owner Ian Mcbain. Ian moved from Scotland to Essex to join the fire service and after many years of paying into his pension he thought he would take the leap and create his own success. I started my property journey when I was 18 with my first buy to let and as the years go on am slowly working with less residential property and more commercial property. However, I'm seeing more and more people talk about different HMO, Rent to rent and Serviced Accommodation methods that I'm am increasingly more interested. Ian Mcbain posted a few of this deals in our Facebook group and I wanted to know more so I got him down to our offices and onto the podcast. So... is it possible to achieve financial freedom using property? Yes, of course it is, but which strategies and tactics ACTUALLY WORK? If you’ve listened to one of my many podca

  • The 4 Types of Businesses

    The 4 Types of Businesses

    27/08/2019 Duration: 14min

    In this episode I wanted to discuss the 4 types of businesses and hopefully you can avoid falling into the wrong category. The first type of business look like an expert but are actually a novice. The second look like a novice but are actually a expert. The third category is MOST PEOPLE... They are average and look average. Next is the fourth and best category, the expert that looks like a expert. Let's break this down. You have probably come across at least one version of these businesses. The tradesman that look scruffy but do the job perfectly or the tradesman that look top notch but don't get the job done well. How you are perceived by your prospects is just as important as the job you do well.   If you’ve listened to one of my many podcasts or watched one of my videos you’ll be familiar with my passion to help business owners overcome some of their pain points.

    Product, Price and Promotion - How To Get It Right

    22/08/2019 Duration: 12min

    Hey guys, in this episode of the James Sinclair podcast I wanted to discuss the importance of getting your product, price and promotion correct so you can turn prospects into customers for your business. Always make sure the product is as good as it can be. We can't market a product or service that is poor because word of mouth is going to be your best form of marketing so make sure you give your customers something positive to talk about. Next is to ensure the price is value for money. We want your customers to feel like they have received more value than what they paid. This doesn't mean you have to be cheap. Just offer more value. Then we talk about promotion and how to tell the world about the amazing product and price in the right way that actually converts to sales. One final point to wrap this whole podcast up is making sure that doing business with you IS EASY FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS. I find it so annoying when you just want to call a business but it takes a masters in rocket science to find their phone nu

    How To Go VIRAL On Facebook With Simon Harris

    12/08/2019 Duration: 29min

    In this episode I sit down with someone who knows exactly how to go viral and he hasn't just done it once but has continued to do it time and time again. Simon Harris has published tons of satire, comedy articles that continue to fool the public in believing they are real. Some of his brilliant headlines include: 'Mr Tumble Suspended By The BBC As He Does Not Have A Current CRB Certificate', 'M25 To Close For One Week In Summer 2016 For 'The Ultimate Endurance Race' and even; 'MUM'S OUTRAGE After Toddler Is Banned From Vegan Child's Birthday Party For Wearing Cow Onesie' Simon shares with us his experience using Facebook to share his blogs, monetising the video platform and how certain headlines can get everyone's attention. Simon's use of great copywriting is something we can all learn from and I can't believe he hasn't had any formal training, you can check out more from Simon here: https://southendnewsnetwork.net/ https://www.facebook.com/manbehavingdadly/ http://www.menbehavingdadly.co.uk/ If you’ve list

  • What Stops Business Owners Building a Bigger Business?

    What Stops Business Owners Building a Bigger Business?

    09/08/2019 Duration: 09min

    I received a message on LinkedIn from someone sharing their pain about growing a business in the UK and how the VAT threshold was holding them back. I wanted to talk about how solopreneurs (those who don't employ) and grow their business and become entrepreneurs with a team. This comes back to one of my points in my letter to Boris Johnson about VAT and what changes could be made to help UK business owners. Many people avoid going past the VAT threshold because it will take 20% of their turnover which many small businesses can not afford, this then stops people growing the business and overall improving our economy.

  • Why Brexit is Exciting for Entrepreneurs

    Why Brexit is Exciting for Entrepreneurs

    05/08/2019 Duration: 10min

    Here's why Brexit and a recession could be really exciting for entrepreneurs and business owners. It starts with people who have the right mindset and their approach to some new opportunities. I think people will start to slow down, they won't employ more people and they won't buy that property they were interested in. In all fairness, if I was buying a house to live in myself then maybe I would wait until January next year to ensure I got a better deal. Our new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has already mentioned a whole range of changes he wants to implement. Because of this, people will slow down on their decision making. You may recognise the famous saying; 'observe the masses and do the opposite'. With everyone else slowing down and holding off from their purchases you could see some great little opportunities for business owners and entrepreneurs who don't want to slow down.

  • The Power of Setting Goals

    The Power of Setting Goals

    02/08/2019 Duration: 11min

    In this episode of the James Sinclair Podcast we talk about the power of setting goals and why, generally speaking the most successful people have goals. It all starts with a powerful vision, what do you ultimately want? In business for example, it's very much like a rollercoaster. You will have a lot of ups and downs along the way and it's going to get rough, there is no way to avoid it, that's life. However, if you have a vision with an end in mind you know exactly where you're going and can focus on the right path towards your success, whatever that may look like for you. Write your goals down when you start the day and when the sun goes down. Put a date on them and give yourself a deadline. I even have a list of my biggest goals for the year on my desk. I read them everyday. Most people only set short term goals, which is definitely better than none at all but make sure those short term goals align with your vision and end in mind so you ensure you stay on the right path.

  • Elements of a Brilliant Business

    Elements of a Brilliant Business

    22/07/2019 Duration: 15min

    In this episode of The James Sinclair Podcast I have a read through my 2nd book 'The Experience Business' to go through my 'Investor-preneur' rules. For the uninitiated, let me briefly explain. Investors look for profit. Entrepreneurs are always looking for opportunities. Fuse the two together and we look for profitable opportunities. If you're a business owner who has been around the block you might already know that not every business venture is a success. Infact, some businesses make so much more money than others. That's just the way it is. Richard Branson once said that business opportunities are like buses, there is always another one coming. But we, as investor-preneurs can seek out those opportunities that will work for us. Here's some of my personal investor-preneur rules as mentioned in my 2nd book: - Can I scale the business? - Is the business capital intensive? - Is there a chance for high price-tag profitable sales? - Is there a chance for residual income? - Is it a 'me too' business or one with

    Price VS. Experience Business - Understanding The Business Life Journey

    19/07/2019 Duration: 19min

    In this episode of The James Sinclair Podcast I wanted to discuss the business life journey so we can understand the steps we need to take to ensure our businesses survive through the tough times. Cashflow is businesses biggest weakness, if the cash flowing then business can keep going. We talk about price focused businesses like Lidl and Aldi compared to experience focused businesses like Apple, Harrods and Rolex. Both types have their pros and cons so let's understand how they make it work regarding cash flow. Once we understand the business life journey we can apply this knowledge to small and medium sized businesses to keep the cash flowing and ultimately increase our profits. Why is it that some business owners are more successful than others?

  • Business Competition and How To Protect Yourself

    Business Competition and How To Protect Yourself

    17/07/2019 Duration: 09min

    In this episode of The James Sinclair Podcast I discuss business competition and how to protect yourself. Here are some of my top tips; you simply can't avoid competition as it is what creates innovation. If you don't innovate you will evaporate. One way to stay ahead is to always be 10% better, make doing business with you 10% easier. Let's look at amazon for example, lots of people sell things online... but not at the efficiency and quality of service amazon provide. They are 10% (probably more) better than everyone else. Make yourself as high barrier to entry as possible. If someone says they want to open an 8 bedroom hotel thats fine, but that is also something another person could easily do. What about opening a 500 bedroom hotel with a lazy river flowing through it and the largest penthouses available... whatever the details may be. This is VERY high barrier to entry and will eliminate almost all of your competition who can't keep up. Regulated businesses are also great. Like our day nurseries for examp
