Looking at this photo I was just thinking about how much my sister Nicky Taylor used to irritate me with what I saw as her persnickety detail-focused, ask-too-many-questions, take-nothing-for-granted, always-inspect-the-downside ways.
Even my Mum was worried when we decided to go into business together that we wouldn’t last 5 minutes with all the bickering.
Since we’ve been in business together we’ve had to grow SO much. To be seen. To lead. To deliver exceptionally, even when it’s difficult. Especially when it’s difficult.
I am now so grateful for Nicky’s attention to detail. For her caution. For her diligence.
Thanks to the amazing Kamila Jarczak of Kamila J Photography for this fantastic photo as part of Women of Newport. We’re so thrilled to be part of it.
We’ve lived in Newport since 2016 and love it here.
We’re Co-Founders of HMO Heaven and Rent 2 Rent Success ( https://rent2rentsuccess.com/ )We started HMO Heaven in our forties and it’s now a leading HMO property management and development business.
We specialise in transforming house shares (also known as HMOs) from hellish to heavenly creating beautiful affordable homes people love to live in. And offering guaranteed rent and total peace of mind to landlords.
Things weren’t always abundant for us, Stephanie, as a teenage single Mum struggled financially and dealt with feelings of shame and low-self worth for many years.
We put off starting in business because we didn’t think that property or business was for ‘people like us’ who didn’t have the contacts, the business experience or lots of money in the bank.
Now that we’ve grown our businesses and helped hundreds of people we can see clearly that what we needed for success was always inside us. We just couldn’t see it. We didn’t give ourselves permission. For many of us, our biggest barrier to fulfilling our dreams is holding ourselves back like we did for so long.
We launched Rent 2 Rent Success to inspire others to see the potential already inside them, to Believe Bigger, Be Bolder and Be Gamechangers for Good through ethical property investment.
We debunk the myth that you need large sums of money to get started in property through our inspirational Rent 2 Rent Success YouTube channel, podcast and website.
Our passion now is to help others to realise that Yes You Can!
Yes you can create the life you love, whatever that means for you.
Whether it’s starting a business or sharing your art with the world.
You have an impact that you were born to make.
The first step is to believe it is possible for you.
Our wish for you is that you realise it before we did!
Our book Rent to Rent Success – The Ultimate Guide to Creating Consistent Cashflow, Escaping the 9-5 and Living Life on Your Terms will be published late 2020
