We've had some great guests already since we picked up after the short summer break, like Jim Haliburton the HMO Daddy, Howard Bowes one of the top mortgage advisors we have the pleasure of knowing, and Daniel Hill, one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the country who has now turned his hand to property investing.
We've got plenty more great guests lined up for September as well, but I'm obviously most excited about the fact that we are able to welcome back our property tax and accountancy expert, Simon Misiewicz after his own summer break.
He's here to give his perspective on the budget announcements with regards to property investing, as well as the pros and cons of going self-eployed.
We also talk financial freedom, goal setting, and Mike's usual monthly property investing update.

So Tom is the first ever guest to return for a second interview on the show. He was first on back in May in episode 35 so if you want to go back and find out more about his background, how he got started and some of his biggest successes and difficulties then it's definitely worth going back to check that episode out as it's one of the top 3 most popular episodes we've ever done.
Back in that episode this is how I introduced him:
Until about 4 years ago, Tom was working in a job for a boss he didn't like earning less than £1,000 a month.
With entrepreneurialism burning in his heart, he stumbled across creative property investing in the United states and found people doing 30 deals a month wholesaling below market value properties, and doing lease options.
He quickly did the maths and realised if he could do even 10% of that he'd be making up to £10,000 a month, so he started applying what he'd learned to the UK market and made £40,000 in his first 4 months.
He now does 4-6 deals a month, only works when he wants, and is planning on getting up to 20 deals per month by the end of the year.
So like I say, that was back at the start of the year, and to be honest, before I recorded the interview with him I didn't really know much about Tom other than the bio he'd sent me. He's not a regular speaker at property events, he just gets on with his business and enjoying life from his base in Barcelona.
But you're probably wondering why I've brought him back for a second interview. Well as I said, he's in the top 3 most popular episodes we've ever done so I know we all got a lot of value from what he had to share last time, but more than that I've been keeping an eye on Tom closely since we last spoke and what he's achieving and how he does it just blows me away.
I won't go into too much detail as I'll leave that to Tom, but he's going to be sharing a deeper dive into some of the investing strategies that are really working well for him and how he is able to run his business and do so well without working 40 hours a week.

Jim started investing in property in 1991, when he was working as a college lecturer teaching Law and renting houses to students. He realised the increase in rent he could achieve by renting individual rooms rather than whole houses, and began to specialise in acquiring and converting properties into HMOs.
He left his job a couple of years later and has since gone on to grow a phenomenal portfolio of 130 HMOs, 30 single lets, and 19 lease option properties along with a letting agency and a building and maintenance team to look after his and other landlords investments.

Howard is the director of Harvey Bowes Mortgage & Finance Brokers, offering a whole of market service but specialising in mortgages for the self-employed and business owners, as well as arranging and advising on development finance and bridging loans.
He's the host of the Cardiff Property Investors Network, proving that property and finance are genuine passions of his rather than just a way to make money, and he's also a very successful investor in his own right.

Justin left school early and headed straight to the building sites as a labourer where he developed a talent with wood and got his carpenter and joiner qualifications, but when bad times hit the building trade and the work stopped he began to rebel and get in trouble.
He made the decision to join the army and in his words this turned his life upside down.
After the army he finally found himself in the world of estate agency and quickly worked his way up the ranks before opening his own agency in 2003. He now owns the most successful agency in his area, holds one of the largest rent-to-rent portfolios in the country, and holds his family firmly at the centre of everything he does.

Harley comes from a family background of landlords and property developers, meaning he was familiar with the property world from a very young age.
With very little academic flair at college, he decided to throw himself into the world of property investing and development at only 17 years old, and with the help of his family and mentors he has had a significant influence on the direction of the family business over the last 2 years, taking it from a Buy to let landlord management role into property development and HMO conversions.
They have just completed a new-build development of 2 x 4 bedroom houses in West Sussex, they exchanged recently on their first HMO project, and have big plans for the future.

It's only been a couple of episodes that we missed but I know from a lot of you that those gaps were noticed and missed. Trust me, it felt like a lot longer than a few episodes for me.
It's funny how you get into a routine with something after only a few short months, and every day I wasn’t recording or editing after doing 70 episodes back to back was genuinely painful. But to be honest with you and with myself, I took on too much and I finally reached my limit.
The good news is that the worst of it is now passed, and I'm hugely excited to get back behind the mic and talking to more amazing and inspiring property investors.
Check out today's episode to find out exactly what we've been up to.
