90 second pitch lands $90,000 for Gen Y property developer

By on October 6, 2020

first_imgJack Gould, 24, is looking at profit of $490,000 on his current developments. Picture: Jono Searle.“At the moment I am doing $5.98m worth of developments in Brisbane with an projected profit share of $1.02m. From this I will be earning a projected $490,000 and I also have two investment properties and live in a waterfront penthouse,” he said. “I do this fulltime now and I am doing all of this with none of my own money. I also just finished writing a book about how I overcame drug addiction to run my own successful business.”Ms Cooper said they were in a privileged position.“It’s pretty good,” she said. “Not many 20-year-olds can say that. It’s an amazing vehicle to get you where you want to be.”She now plans to take three months off to work in a summer camp in the US.“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” she said, “then come back and look at my next property.”Her advice to other millennials was to ignore the naysayers: “Don’t let all the negative comments get to you … Just educate yourself. Money is easy to get. Learn from people who have done it. Don’t listen to people who haven’t done it.” More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agoNaomi Cooper on site in Shailer Park – her first development project. Picture: Jono Searle.“The biggest eye-opener is just how accessible property is,” she said. “There are so many people complaining about how hard it is to get into the property market but the issue isn’t their age or money, the issue is their knowledge and education.”She said the program showed her how it was possible to use other people’s money and work around common ways people get into property. “I go to someone who has a lot of money and say you have money but don’t have time, invest and I’ll give a 20 per cent return and split the profit 50-50.”Mr Gould, who’s writing a book about his experiences and speaks at school assemblies about property, said his goal was to earn $1m next financial year.

If we can teach them all those things in 26 weeks, they can be successful in property.”Seven were selected off 90-second video pitches made to judges – from Geelong to Sunshine Coast, Tasmania and Charters Towers.“We knew nothing (about them) other than their pitches,” Mr Doodney said. “Last year one was a junkie, and he’s completely reformed now. They had no money and no jobs at the time.”.Ms Cooper subdivided and developed a Hester Street property in Shailer Park, where her joint venture partner put up the initial property at about $550,000, with a deal to split the profits 50-50. Some of her biggest costs were over $33,000 for concreting, renovation of over $28,000, over $16,000 in earthworks, over $16,000 for council works, close to $16,000 in bank interest, and over $10,000 in engineering.last_img read more

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has perfect response to weight gain rumors

By on August 26, 2020

first_imgEzekiel Elliott has responded to critics who said he gained weight this offseason.Not only did the Cowboys running back show himself without a shirt, but he even directed the camera at a scale, which hovered at about 230 pounds. Elliott is listed at 228 on his official page, so he’s clearly right in the same area he’s always been. All of this is in response to people who saw a photo of Elliott over the weekend and decided to comment on it. The photo was posted by Elliott himself, and it didn’t exactly show him in a flattering light. NFL MOCK DRAFT: Predicting the entire first round VonMillerDay2019A post shared by Ezekiel Elliott (@ezekielelliott) on Apr 21, 2019 at 6:58am PDTHe does look a bit larger here, but on first glance, the shirt seems to be misleading the eye. If Zeke was wearing a shirt like the guy on the right, he’d probably look more fit. But because he was wearing a loose-fitted shirt, it opened himself up for criticism from others.Several people on Elliott’s own Instagram page started to body shame him for his appearance. His weight even became a topic for sports “analysts” to debate.After receiving so much attention, it’s clear why Elliott felt the need to respond.center_img (Instagram) View this post on Instagramlast_img read more
