The world’s first property investment franchise recently explained, with the help of long-standing Partner Jon Downing, why planning ahead is crucial in the corporate world.
Jon has been in the industry for a long time, and he’s seen a great deal. As a franchisee with Platinum Property Partners, he spoke for the entire estate agency and property franchise when he said that, “It’s so important to plan ahead and take control of the situation by taking steps to give yourself long-term financial independence once your corporate career ends – whether it’s forced upon you or not.”
According to Jon, “There are things you can do to build some long-term financial security so when things change, as they inevitably do in the corporate world, you have that safety net there. There’s almost a permanent cycle in corporate life where every few years businesses look to move things offshore or relocate staff, so the notion of a ‘job for life’ really doesn’t exist anymore. It’s vital to plan ahead, rather than waiting for it all to end and having no options like many people in corporate life do.”
Jon provided customers with his four top tips for planning an effective corporate exit strategy. Tip one: Don’t just wait for it all to end. Get ahead of the game, because as quoted above, a ‘job for life’ is rare in 2021. Tip two: Start with the end in mind. Plan for the future all the way from the very beginning. Tip three: Get solid financial advice from a source that you can trust. And finally, tip four: Understand who you are, and what you want. If you don’t, you won’t ever truly be able to set yourself up for future success and happiness.
If, like Jon, you think you could succeed as a Platinum Property Partner, providing advice and guidance to investors across the UK, you can become a franchisee with the company for a minimum initial investment of £300,000.
