The Little Book of Property:
with Perform in Property

 Steve Backley OBE and Roger Black MBE, two of Britain's greatest Olympians, are best-known for their sporting careers within track and field. What is lesser known about Steve and Roger is their passion for property investing that started many years ago - one that has since evolved into the creation of a dedicated property training brand called Perform in Property. But why property, you might ask? The most important message for you, the reader, is that professional sportspeople, just like you, are vulnerable. Lives can be broken or destroyed overnight. And regardless of whether you are a sprinter, a lorry driver, an entrepreneur working 24/7 or a retired teacher, each and every one of you reading this book can find your passion and create your own version of success through bricks and mortar. By creating passive income streams, you can stop trading time for money and live a life that offers you more choice and freedom, as well as a Legacy for your family. Steve and Roger hope that The Little Book of Property inspires you to take action and join #teampip #joinourteam. 


The Little Book of Inspiration

It's fun doing things slightly better and this book is about small ideas that can have a big impact. After all, where's the fun in being mediocre when we don't have to be?

Steve Backley, Roger Black and Humphrey Walters combined their different performance journeys to produce a simple book of real examples, that easily adapt to any environment. Slip this one into your pocket or bag and read it on a train or plane journey. Dip in and out when it suits you.
