Welcome to our April 2018 Newsletter, which I’m writing up in beautiful Burleigh Heads, my home away from home.
The Commonwealth Games happen to be on around me, which unfortunately seems more of an inconvenience to locals than anything else… and, what was sold as a great business opportunity, has turned out for most small business owners to be a disaster. It seems this guy below had the right idea.
In my monthly video below I’ll tell you who did win big financially out of the Games, and what you can learn from it.
Last month in March, it was great to finally get back into live physical events around Australia. Thank you to all that came, the feedback was excellent and it was great to catch up in person again… and apologies to those that missed it due to room capacities. If you missed out, I’m pleased to announce we’ll be following that up again very soon, and even going back to beautiful Adelaide this time too (be sure to check out the Gift of the Month below)!
I read with interest this week an online article on the Australian National Review website about property funds planning to target the lucrative Airbnb™ sector. It seems I am ahead of my time in spotting trends…
But it’s obvious really.
With average residential rental returns in major cities between 2.5% – 4% say, and well managed Airbnb™ properties grossing between 8% – 12%... it’s only a matter of time, in a yield-starved world, that big money is going to come looking for better returns. in my opinion well-run Airbnb™ properties offer an incredible opportunity to achieve that, in a relatively low-risk way.
But it gets even better - small cogs turn big cogs. Increase the yield of an asset by 100% and what have you just done to the capital growth or value of the asset? You may have doubled it. What if you triple the yield?... Maybe soon, well-run Airbnb™ residential properties will soon start to be valued on their yield, much like commercial property is. Now that will be VERY interesting.
And with Sydney and now Melbourne property prices falling slightly over the past quarter or so, it’s clear the growth tap has turned off for now. What investors will be searching for now is yield! Many will look to the Airbnb™ model to supply this and most won’t want to do it themselves…
They’ll be looking for an Airbnb™ professional to partner with… and with the right training that could be you. Be sure to check out our national Airbnb™ training tour below.
SILVER UPDATE: In my January newsletter this year I gave my 5 What’s HOT in 2018 tips. One was precious metals; gold and in particular, silver. Here’s a couple of interesting things.
The Gold/Silver ratio has recently been pushing 80! This number is achieved by dividing the Gold price in US Dollars, by the Silver price in US Dollars. A figure of 80 tells you it takes 80 ounces of Silver to buy just one ounce of Gold. This is extreme, to say the least, with various precious metals experts suggesting this ratio historically is down between 12 – 20. Admittedly it’s been much higher in our lifetimes, but regardless, many experts believe that silver is severely undervalued at the moment. If it just reverts somewhere back to its mean historical ratio, it could go up multiples and quickly.
Also, just this month the price of silver dipped below both its 200-day AND 50-day moving average indicators on the charts. This is very rare, (and ‘very desirable’ expert Mike Maloney suggests) if you intend to purchase soon and hold for the medium to long-term.
Now, to be clear, I’m not giving you financial advice. But, with the Australian Government just recently (and virtually secretly) forcing through ‘Bail-In’ laws on our Nation last month (think Cyprus 2013) - it might be a good time to get some of your money out of the banking system and into something solid, physical and that has stood the test of time. Just saying…
CRYPTO UPDATE: Another one of my top 5 What’s HOT in 2018 tips was that Crypto would achieve mass adoption. I stand by it. So whilst the Crypto market, in general, has halved or more in price since January 2018, and that’s all the mainstream media reports on, you would think Crypto was dead and buried? You should ask yourself why the banks and governments are trying to make it so hard to get into Crypto? Why do they demonise it? Do you really think it’s for your protection? Or are they just talking the market down so they can get in on the action at the lowest possible prices? (Which JP Morgan, George Soros and several other billionaires are doing).
Or is it because it has the power to replace their fiat printed dollars and make them irrelevant?
Why don’t they report fairly on mainstream media? Is it because the banks are their biggest advertisers?
Here’s a selection of recent headlines/articles I found searching the net…
> Blockchain is ‘Going Mainstream’ Says European Commission Official
> China’s Hangzhou city government just invested $400 million into a $1 Billion Blockchain Fund launch.
> Rockefeller’s $3 Billion Venture Capital Firm Venrock Begins To Invest In Cryptocurrency
> China’s state electricity firm eyes blockchain for internet of energy
> Amazon has filed patents and trademarks getting ready to accept Crypto
> Mark Zuckerberg is officially considering Cryptocurrency for Facebook
> Bank of America has filed for the most Bitcoin patents
> Paypal files a patent for a system to speed up Cryptocurrency transaction times
In light of these huge stories, the day-to-day price fluctuations are a distraction. Think big picture. Remember, given a choice between fast and slow, people will take fast. Between better or worse, they’ll take better. Between cheaper or more expensive, they’ll take cheaper.
Faster-Cheaper-Better wins every time (think Uber!) And the Crypto coins that nail that, will win. Crypto is here to stay folks, and banks are already irrelevant, they just haven’t worked it out yet.

'How To Get Rich' by Felix Dennis
A college dropout with no family money, Felix Dennis created a publishing empire, founded Maxim magazine, and made himself one of the richest people in the UK.
How to Get Rich is different from many other books on the subject because Dennis isn't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. He merely wants to help people embrace entrepreneurship and to share lessons he learned the hard way.
