Issue 05: Abi Oniru - The young property investor
...in conversation with PWR
During an interview call with Abi, we learnt about investing into property and why it is such a powerful resource. The information she shares and advice she imparts are not just useful but also inspiring. Seeing another young person taking control of her finances and future investments in this way truly fills us with pride. Enjoy this read, it’ll teach you a thing or two!
So, what are the two qualities that are needed to become a property investor?
The first quality is being goal driven. Make sure you’re motivated. It takes motivation and you have to be organised. Because I do work virtually I literally do it from home or wherever I am... I don’t really believe in just getting a deal and paying someone to do it because I know what I’m doing. So, when you know your workability then do it. Rather than being lazy. But of course, if you don’t have the time I totally understand, and that’s why I created the ‘Angel Investors service’ because so many investors, they have money sitting in their account and they want to put it to use, but when your money stays in your account, it’s 0.1% interest a month."
What does resilience mean to you and can you share an experience where you have had to be resilient?
"I believe resilience is when you’re driven, and you have to keep going no matter what knocks you down. And for me personally, through the obstacles I faced even getting my properties, I did it. I made sure I didn’t give up."...
Why are you motivated to help others get to where you are?
" To be honest, if there was someone like me, I’d be so happy. Nowadays you just see people that just talk talk talk, and they want you to pay 1k, 2k, 3k and they’re giving you some rubbish documents and you’re thinking that money is literally someone’s savings. And so, it’s a thing where, I’ve always been a person to help people and so I love teaching people as well, I love stuff like that."...
...There could be times where you feel like nothing’s possible, but now I believe when there’s an obstacle there’s a way. And the whole point of an obstacle is to challenge you."
