‘You seriously took this picture two years ago?’
‘Yep. The place is unrecognisable isn’t it.’
‘But how did you manage it?’
‘I invited investment, with a time frame.’
‘I can see that, but how come you now have a complete town, medical centre and shopping complex?’
‘Easy. My time frame was a year to eighteen months, and the stipulation was that whatever was built, had to be funded by the investor, not me. You’d be amazed at how many Big Businesses jumped at the chance to extend or develop, not to mention if things went belly up, for them it was tax deductible. Besides, there would always be someone willing to take up the reins for a song to continue with their abandoned project.’
‘Clever. How much did you originally pay for the site?’
‘Quarter of a million.’
‘And now it’s worth…………………….?
‘Ten times that, and all the lease revenue comes to me plus a percentage of their profits!’
‘Can I join in?’
‘Sure. What do you want to build and how much do you have to invest?’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
