Five questions for: Rob Moore, co-founder of Progressive Property

Progressive Property is a property investment training company that also develops, converts and lets properties.

Rob Moore,  co-founder, Progressive Property

What has been your greatest achievement?

What has been your biggest challenge?

What are your plans for hitting your targets this year?

But we think that to scale to another level would need training in other countries. This has been forged by our media channels and social media channels, which have got us global reach. So too has my podcast, The Disruptive Entrepreneur, which has been downloaded in 192 countries.

What is the one piece of advice you would give to fellow entrepreneurs?

In other areas you will need to be more service-focused, concentrating on the quality of your products and services, how much you care for your clients, your community and the good that you do for your community or the planet as a whole. Balancing these two sometimes opposing forces will give you scalability and sustainability, and meet the needs of you and your market. If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.
