“The truth about developing property in your spare time…”
Many people think property development is complicated – but can it really be done in your spare time?
Meet Simon Boyden; good friend and business partner of Ian Child, who plots his journey from being a complete property novice buying a plot of land on a whim during his very own ‘sliding doors’ moment, to completing multi-million pound developments over a quarter of a century (and over 50 builds) later, with all of it being done in his spare time whilst juggling a day-job.
Simon reflects on his journey and gives us great insights into what struggles are encountered when you literally start with no knowledge whatsoever. Petrol-heads of a more sensitive disposition may wish to avoid the section at 8:13 where he recounts how the younger Simon was literally a few minutes away from taking delivery of a new sports car (spoiler alert: something rather life-changing happened instead).
