Are you lucky? How important is luck in your success in property investment, in business or as an entrepreneur? 

We often think success comes as a reward to the hardest working, most focused, and most talented individuals.

But is that really the case?

Believe it or not, luck may play a bigger role in success than you think.

Some of the things we discuss:

  • Why people may have difficulty seeing opportunities
