Entrepreneur In Focus: Amy Rowlinson and Dan Hulbert from The Property Vault
This week, Nick is bringing you an interview with two guests, Amy Rowlinson and Dan Hulbert, the founders of The Property Vault Group, who use their vast array of knowledge to help property professionals find opportunities to network, educate and collaborate.
Amy and Dan have joined Nick to discuss the importance of changing your environment and peer group in order to change your life, and what you can do in order to surround yourself with the mentors and other influences who will take you towards greater success and growth.
Dan began life as a builder, and Amy spent thirteen years as a residential landlord, making her ideal in terms of experience when it comes to identifying investment properties.
The importance of networking cannot be overstated. Being in contact with people on a similar journey will allow you to connect with types you may not otherwise have met, and from whom you can draw immense value.
Set your goals effectively, but always keep in mind that the end is never the end. It’s far more important to enjoy the journey, and the different person you will become along the way.

Maximise Your Profits
In partnerships, it’s often the entrepreneur who’s more creative that has trouble leveraging, as it can be more difficult to hand off tasks on the creative side.
Financial freedom is best typified by the statement that 100% or more of your outgoings are paid for by income that you do not have to go and do anything on a daily basis in order to earn. This is known as a horizontal income stream.
To create financial freedom, you must first perform as assessment of where you are. Work out your net income. 50% of your net income should be used for necessities (mortgage, bills etc). Split your remaining income in 10% chunks between five “accounts”:
Education and personal development
The biggest issue with any type of scale is the nuances caused by people coming together. All partnerships face the risk of these nuances not working.
‘Having different perspectives is a big bonus’
‘You can’t see the picture if you’re still in the frame’
‘It’s not just about the end, it’s also about the journey’
‘It’s not about the goal. It’s about who you need to become’
‘It feels good when you give’
‘Knowledge makes you clever, but if you apply it, you are wise’
