Seminar Speaker / Investor
Malaika Aaron-Green grew up in North London with her mum and spent the first quarter of her life not really knowing what she wanted to do. Despite having had a good education, driven forward by her mum, Malaika had a fire in her belly from a young age – but wasn’t sure of her best direction or focus.
Having graduated in 1999, Malaika’s mum suggested that she do a TEFL Course in Barcelona. She was meant to go for a year. She stayed for nine and a half years. And it was during these years that Malaika’s life purpose was about to take shape. Malaika met her husband Ben while she was in Barcelona and they chose to come back to the UK as she had spent all her savings.
Whilst working full-time for a top retailer, Malaika dragged her husband along to a Rich Dad Education seminar, back in 2010. Her husband Ben had signed up for training before the two-hour event had even finished. They both ‘got’ it and were about to embark upon an adventure that would change their lives.
Having completed the three-day Property Academy weekend, they purchased their first deal on their mentorship in October 2010 and within three months, this property was cash flowing +£450.00 pcm. Within 18 months, Malaika was financially free and had left her full-time job.
Between 2010 and 2013, Malaika focused on BTL investments and has since branched out into HMO’s. At the end of 2012, Malaika worked as a crew member for LEA and started speaking at the start of 2014. Malaika would offer the following advice to anyone considering a journey of self-development and financial freedom:-
“You never know what will happen until you try. I lost so much confidence but once I was on the right path, with the right knowledge and with the right people around me, I knew… I just knew. In life, what is the worst that can happen? You fail and you pick yourself up and start again. It happens to all of us.
