Having a specific mindset can be useful for those business-minded individuals in being successful. However, success is made, not born which means everyone has the same shot as everyone else.
Don't focus on what's happened, focus on what you are about to make happen.
Find out why that mindset is a key to success.
Let's start with the basics, "don't focus on what's happened", why?
Simple, because it already happened, there's not turning back and there's no changing so focusing on the past is nothing but a complete waste of time.
Instead try using that time to focus on what you are about to make happen, but don't just wait around, do it, work everyday for the future and do that by living in the present not the past.
Yep – I stopped taking deposits a while ago!
And yep – we have issues with people under 25 – and you can blame the government for pulling the safety net.
Deposits can be useful if you are an entrepreneur investing in housing and renting out but is that really the way to go? What if your client tries to take advantage of that deposit? And there are times that you can't do anything about it because it's their money.
Plus, there are times that you will have interested clients that are under 25, and now, we don't take them anymore? Why? Blame the government and their law regarding housing benefits in which people under 25 can't claim.

Business Mentoring | Anything takes time, effort and dedication
Whether you are an artist, businessman or just a person with goals, you can never go wrong with time, effort and dedication.
With those three, you can achieve anything.
No one can be successful overnight. The best things in life, they take time but that doesn't mean you should just sit around waiting for it.
No one can get what they want without hard work. With time, you have to work your behind off everyday, it's a journey towards success, success doesn't come knocking on your door.
No one can achieve their goals effortlessly. Of course, one has to be very motivated because that's the fuel that drives someone to exert effort all the time, and if one is dedicated, there's nothing holding them back.
Daniel Latto | How To Get Your Finances On Track
It can be fairly straightforward to do, but it’s all about taking control and maintaining a little bit of discipline.
Having your finances on track is a good way to survive and in this video, I tell you how.
Take a look and tell me what you think!
There are many aspects in our life that affect our financial state, sometimes it only affects a little but there are instances wherein the effect is drastic. Believe it or not, one drastic financial mistake can cause a person to lose track, be very disorganized and even in debt - which is the last thing one needs right now in this money-driven and ever-evolving world.
In this podcast interview, I speak with Rent to Rent Multilet expert Francis Dolley about how he got started in Property, and more specifically, what there the 'triggers' that got him started.
Interestingly, Francis has a slight stammer, and yet decides to go and speak in front of hundreds of people at a time to pass on his knowledge and experience.
This Podcast interview is filled with amazing information, great content and advice and is well worth a listen.
Francis has taken control of properties and Multi-Lets them out with no huge deposits, needs no mortgage and has created multiple net cashflows of £1000s per month
It's an inspirational interview - take a listen.
Rent to Rent (or Rent2Rent as it’s also known) is very popular right now.
And you know what, if I had to start at zero again, I would use this, along with being a Property Sourcer to get started in property again if I had little or no money.
Rent to rent isn’t easy though, not unless you’ve had some rent 2 rent training that can help you along with some help from a rent to rent coach.
In this video I break down Rent To Rent and there is some training now on offer too.
So take a look and let me know what you think!
If you are a property investor or just wanna invest in property then knowing the basics of rent is a necessity. It's what makes an investment efficient.
And having proper training helps you avoid downfall or debt.
Yep – I know it’s a controversial headline.
But watch the video and let me explain why.
Money is and will probably remain an issue for some people, if not, the entire population. But are some people poor by choice and some just born into financial stability? Or do we play a much bigger role as to where we are in a financial state?
I know many will just comment based on the headline alone, but the context of what I'm saying is mega important as to why I think that, and why, for those people who are struggling financially, they are best placed to do something about it in these modern times in which we live.
You can download my podcast which covers everything from business, to get started in property with very little money on my website which is at https://www.daniellatto.co.uk and don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel!

What Robert Kiyosaki Really Said About MLM And Network Marketing.
It’s a giant misconception that Robert Kiyosaki said “If I were to start again, I’d start with network marketing”, but I hear it rather a lot from network marketers and MLMers in some sort of justification for them pushing their product in peoples faces at networking events.
Why you would push somebody else’s brand is anyone’s guess when you should be growing your personal brand?
Especially when more often than not, network marketers lie a lot when they’re working, which would say a lot about the values they sell.
Therefore, did Mr. Kiyosaki mean that he would work in network marketing or did he mean that he would start his own network marketing company?
Anyway – take a watch and let me know what you think.
In this Podcast, I interview Vicki Wusche who discusses how she moved from being a single mum working part time to working full time in property and being financially free.
An inspirational and educational podcast that delves under the bonnet to find out more about what makes Vicki so successful.
We talk about the actions that Vicki took specifically, about how she survived on part time work and her attention to detail that helped.
Vicki is passionate about helping people, especially those on benefits and discussesabout how the government actually prevents her helping more people by the rules they have in place for tenants.
Vicki has an event coming up very soon and you can see the details of this here : http://www.bit.ly/spi-latto
The author of several books, Vicki also talks about those people who read all the books, do all the webinars and seminars, but then take no action.
We talk about how to shortcut the route to success through mentoring and fast tracking results.
We also cover how mindset is important, and how to make better decisions based upon the actions you have taken.
Finally, we talk about how to get started in property, about what the first steps could be.
This was an incredibly enjoyable interview, packed with valuable advice and information.
Marketing Funnels – Why businesses are failing to get noticed | content, content, content
The sheer amount of noise you have to make simply to get noticed these days is huge.
The more noise you make to get noticed, the more people TAKE notice.
Get creating content now. And remove this area of business that’s failing.
With the widespread of aspiring and upcoming new businesses wanting a place in the market, it's like battle royale just to get noticed. But that's what advertisements are for - to get your business out there.
But is mere advertisement enough?
With the development of internet, the traditional ways of advertisements are basically ineffective.
However, there's a way to get your business noticed by the people casually scrolling through the internet and that's by creating content.
The more content you put out, the more possibility that people may come across your business.
The UK Debt Problem Is About To Erupt – And The Banks Are Worried.
Should you be ?
Well maybe, especially if you have tenants who may have a lot of debt.
Not only do debt affect the person in debt but also the people around them: their family, their spouse, their children and sometimes, their landlord. A person in debt is going to be very cautious about their money and would try to push back having to pay them as long as they possibly can, otherwise, they wouldn’t be in debt.
Try and help them, before their problem becomes your problem and the rent isn’t paid.
But what about you ?
Debt is most often than not seen as a huge weight on one's shoulder because as they say, money makes the world go round and as much as people rationalize and deny it, we can't overlook that most of our actions, motives and goals are driven financially.
If you have credit card debt or loans then maybe so - now is the time to start paying that lot down.
We call it 'bad debt' (as opposed to good debt which are things like mortgages etc that helps put money INTO your pocket).
Too much bad debt can slow you down, make you sluggish and hold you back.
Pay it down as fast as possible.
Then take a look at your income to debt ratio - and see if you're comfortable with it.
Episode 5 - Why You Should Be Using Social Media Marketing In Your Business Right Now
Social Media has clearly been around for a long time, but as a Property Investor & Business Owner, are you using it correctly ?
During this podcast, i'll talk through some of the strategies that you should be using Social Media Marketing for.
As part of the 3 rules towards Financial Freedom in the next 5 years, we're always looking to cover how to :
1. Cut Costs
2. Generate Cash
3. Invest the rest,
This podcast helps cover #2, Generating Cash - and Social Media is a mechanism by which we can generate more potential leads, build credibility in the market place and generate more cash.
If you're not using Social Media to engage with your potential audience (and not just share pictures of cats), then you're business is missing out on this resource that has the potential to literally transform your business.
I personally generate thousands each month through social media into my coaching practice, and so I know how vital a resource it can be once used correctly
Daniel Latto | Typical day of helping clients, learning & implementing
Always Be Pitching – remember this is a brief insight, but through out the day I’m constantly looking at how I can extend my reach and help more people get what they want.
Today I’m going to be helping clients in need of business coaching, all the while learning myself and implementing what I learned.
Join me in this journey.
Learning and implementing should always go hand in hand, especially when starting a business. You should always be open to learn new things, especially if it helps, however, your knowledge would be deemed useless if you don't implement it to your work and your life.
Practice what you preach - is another way of saying it.
Is Landlord Licensing a way for your caring council to make sure ‘rogue landlords’ don’t take advantage?
Or is it just another way to make yet more money from 99% of good landlords who abide by the rules ?
Of course, the government has done countless questionable things, so is this scheme one of them? Is this really necessary?
I think you can probably tell which way I’m swaying on this issue.
But it’s coming – nationwide.
Maybe not this month or even this year, but it will definitely come in as cash strapped councils need a way to earn money in return for doing fuck all.
(Yep – I swore – it’s THAT serious!)
So what can you do? Take a watch of the video.
The people in the big hats are always coming up with new ideas everyday, left and right, to expand their bank accounts and pass it off as a new law. However, surely intricate research was done before actually passing off this idea and considering it but with the reputation of the government being corrupt and other issues surrounding them, it's understandable for people to question whether it's really effective and with a motive to better the lives of the citizens or if there's a whole other ulterior motive behind it.
And now, they've come up with another idea that goes by the name Landlord Licensing. Basically, according to liverpool.gov.uk, it states that "All private landlords in the city must obtain a licence for each of their rented properties. This scheme has been introduced under the government’s selective licensing laws and signing up for it is compulsory." and the supposed benefits includes, assurance and safety.
In this hour long podcast, I interview Property Entrepreneur Barry Davies about his rise to wealth through property investing in the UK.
I ask him about his 3 tips for getting results (which you can apply to anything you want to get results in), we discuss some of the pitfalls to avoid and he describes how he went from no money left to how his top 5 properties earn him a whopping 6 figure income each year. He's done this in a relatively short space of time.
Starting a business?
Then forget “passion”.
I know that’s what everyone says.
But if you’re passionate about baking, working 12 hour days in a bakery – you’re going to hate baking.
Imagine working in Starbucks all day long – you may have loved coffee to begin with, but after 12 months, you’re going to hate that smell.
So look – how about this “Solve a problem – Help people “- because the more people you can help get what they want, the more you will get what you want.
I know passion is something that needs to be considered when it comes to starting a business because that's where your interest lies, that's where dedication comes from.
But just because you're passionate about something doesn't guarantee that you will succeed in your business venture.
Helping people - that's more effective because you are catering to the people, that's the point of being a businessman, the people aren't there to cater to your passion.
In this video I talk about some of the obstacles we face, and how in our overcoming of them, it allows us to grow as individuals, and face tougher challenges in the future.
Changes are the only thing constant in this world, and they can also be in a form of failure, obstacle, and there’s only way to survive it, it’s coming anyway so adapt! Adapting to change is a means of survival, or career-wise, success. Why? Because that way, one can come out smarter, and stronger. Imagine a life with no changes, stagnant and still, you’ll learn nothing from it, there’s nothing to challenge you, nothing to stimulate you mentally and spiritually and nothing to work on.
Success is not destination, it’s a journey. Why? Look at it this way, if success was a mere destination, there’s always that question “what now?” after you reach it. There’s no end point in success, and you can’t just settle to it once achieved, always go for the better and bigger things because you didn’t go that far to just stay that far. Success is a journey, achieving your goals is not a overnight transaction, you will fall and you will be challenged but you either see that as a failure or as a lesson.
I see too many people giving up at the first hurdle, giving up because it’s hard, giving up because they’re not a millionaire by week 1 (or even year 6).
These things take time. Allow yourself to go through them, take the learnings and grow as a person.
Your results will be so much powerful when you let the process happen.
Hi, so in this video I wanted to talk about overcoming the odds of being ‘just average’.
I, for example, am average.
And I yet got to a stage where my investments pay for my lifestyle here in Spain.
So – how do you overcome being average then ?
Take a look.
So maybe there's nothing wrong with being average to the world because we're all equal, however, that shouldn't stop you from being extraordinary in your own self one way or another. Maybe you want to be extraordinary financially or career-wise.
That can happen.
There's nothing wrong with wanting more for yourself.
Hi and welcome.
In this episode, I delve into one of the strategies I used to generate new fresh leads for both my lettings agency, and my Property Buying business.
Using this strategy, we were able to continually grow the number of leads we received in the business, and it's something you can implement for your own business regardless of what business you're actually in.
So my Video editor who is just about to go on holiday for a week (how dare he!) was a tad late on getting this one done, so we'll release it today!
I LOVE Mondays - and I suggest EVERYONE try and get to the stage where you can choose how to live your Mondays too.
Mondays always have that stigma around it - weekend is over, back to work/school, therefore, it must be awful.
Yes, it might be.
If you choose to see it like that.
However, you can always change the way you think so you can enjoy and make use of all the time you have, that means including Mondays.
Your values are formed in your early years in what’s called your ‘IMPRINT PERIOD’ – these tend to stay with most people for the rest of their life.
It’s what makes a person because values are the basis of one’s judgments, actions, reactions, motives and motivations. In any aspects of life, values are always present, especially when trying to achieve an endeavor. For example, one of the person’s main value is money-making then you can say a person is driven financially and thus, they will most likely go after the result that makes them money. Values, more or less, develop as the person grows and matures, however, that doesn’t really ensures one’s success granted that there are different results for different approaches with the values behind them.
So what this means is that literally, your results are born out of these values that are installed at a young age.
So unless you do some work around these, you’ll tend to get the same results.
There are exceptions of course, and doing things like learning new skills, and learning to focus better and work harder will help, but ultimately it’s your values that affect your results.
So – you can spend the rest of your life trying to make the change, or you can JUST MAKE THE CHANGE.
And thats where my Life Enhancement Activation Programme comes in.
Video Marketing | How more content leads to increased web traffic
After increasing the amount of content we’ve been pumping out on the last week, our website stats DOUBLED.
Yep. They doubled.
Not only that, but now that the content has been made (Videos and Podcasts) – it STAYS MADE.
Which means we can re-purpose it later on, say in 6 months or a year or so.
And then we get to send MORE traffic back to the website, build brand and overall awareness so that when the time is right, people can do business with us.
All in all: More content = More eyeballs looking at your offers.
It’s really as simple as that.
Having more content out on the internet increases the possibility of the users to come across it and they will stick around, especially with consistent content always out. It's an effective way of getting people to know you, kind of like advertising but you're moreover offering content to them. It's a way of putting your name on the radar.
While yes, creating content may not be easy and smooth-sailing but that's where consistency plays its part (like the video where I talk about how consistency is vital to your success)
Property Lease Options are still fairly new to the UK Property Investing Scene.
So, what are they and how can they help you invest.
