Does the thought of achieving financial freedom for you and your family drive you the most when it comes to escaping the rat race?
On this week’s episode of Escape The Rat Race Radio, I’m very pleased to welcome former special forces captain in the Swedish marines, now turned serial entrepreneur, mentor and successful property investor, Fredrik Sandvall.
Our main topic of discussion this week is Entrepreneur funding, and why so many people starting out in business, in fact generally, find it so difficult to talk about money.
After leaving the military, Fredrik spent over twenty years gaining experience within management and consulting, working at senior levels within the world’s largest organisations to create growth. During this time, he raised many millions of pounds worth of finance for different companies, and he realised the power in learning how to use other people's money through funding.
After so many years within the corporate world, Fredrik decided to focus on his own business, and along with his brother Mattias, they decided to work closely with the Property Investors Network (PIN) in the UK, transferring his knowledge of raising finance in business, to working with other investors and establishing a property portfolio with a value of over £5m within the first 12 months.
Fredrik has since focused on his love of helping other individuals to achieve their own financial goals by mentoring other aspiring entrepreneurs, with several having gone on to raise multiple millions in less than a year!
In this episode you’ll learn… Why having a strong discipline can help you to tackle problems head on and move you forwards towards your goals Why there is no such thing as a ‘self-made millionaire’ The huge benefits that come from gaining good quality training in the area you want to build your business, and why the peer group that comes with that is so important Why you do not necessarily need to be the one with the money in order to begin investing in property Why working with a business partner can help you to develop your business faster, especially if they have complementary skills to you The property strategy that Fredrik and his brother Mattias used to acquire £5m of property within 12 months using other people’s money The key to raising money is always to find out what you can do for the other person, not what they can do for you What one of the major reasons why people in business do not achieve success as quickly as they should do The many different sources of funding available today, and why banks can still be one of the best How the biggest investment you can make, is the one in yourself
‘How can we learn about money, when we can’t talk about it?’
‘I love the term self-made millionaire, but it is completely flawed. I don’t think anyone would make unless they work with other people’
‘Pick your partners carefully, and the same with your mentors and teachers’
‘If you don’t dare to ask anyone, you will never get anything [money] at all’
‘What holds people’s success back is they don’t dare to ask [for money] in the first place’
‘The key step to ‘act’ on what you already know that you should do, that is the gamechanger’
Don’t lie in bed in the morning, get up!
