FRANCHISE HEROES Five minutes with...


Steve Bolton, founder and chairman of property portfolio franchise Platinum Property Partners


"I've lived in Bournemouth most of my life and followed the local team ever since"


How did PPP come about? From 2004 to 2016 I bought 20 properties in Bournemouth, which provided high- quality, affordable shared accommodation for 80 tenants. From this, I secured fi nancial independence, my pension was guaranteed and a fi nancial legacy was created for future generations, and I wanted to enable others to achieve this, too.


Why franchise the business? My real passion is mentoring, training, forming partnerships and sharing experiences and success – franchising is based on long-term, mutually rewarding and profi table partnerships so it seemed the natural step!


How do you relax? I developed the PPP model so that I could enjoy time freedom. My own portfolio helped me achieve my goal of taking three months’ holiday a year to travel the world with my family. Despite running the franchise, I still do this! I also relax by going out on my boat or to the Juicy Oasis health retreats hosted by my friend, Jason Vale.


What lies ahead for PPP? In 2017, I achieved my goal to make shares available for Franchise Partners to purchase. We want to continue to expand the engagement and involvement of our


98


Franchise Partners in helping us moving the business forward. I also have a personal mission to end homelessness, which many of our Franchise Partners support.


What team do you follow? My dad was a semi-professional footballer, so it’s a sport I've always followed. I’ve lived in Bournemouth most of my life and followed the local football team ever since. In 2015, they were promoted to the Premiership so the last few seasons have been especially exciting!


Your fantasy dinner party guests? John Lewis; Andrew Carnegie, the billionaire industrialist and philanthropist; Mother Teresa; Nelson Mandela; Gandhi; and Elon Musk.


Who’d play you in the fi lm of your life? My three boys – Nathan, 28, Charlie, 16, and Jude, 9. Each one could have a role at different stages of my life.


How would you like to be remembered? As a man of integrity and trust who made a positive and lasting difference to thousands of people around the world, but who still remained a regular, likeable bloke.
