Following our latest Get Up Give Back (GUGB) achievement where over 100 of our Property Entrepreneurs walked over 100,000,000 steps and raised over £100,000, I was reminded of where we started with this and how following the blueprint has enabled us to smash our target yet again. So here is an insight to this methodology we use at Property Entrepreneur with our YPN article of July 2019. #ThrowbackThursday
Success and failure are both very predictable, and having recently launched PPN UK’s new charity initiative Get Up Give Back, we used what I call the Property Entrepreneur Methodology and Blueprint. Starting with only a vision and a journal, we raised £75,000 in 13 weeks, smashing our target and setting a new world record in the process.
It’s mindblowing what you can achieve in just 90 days. All you need to know is what to do and then have the discipline and execution to get your head down and do it.
Get Up Give Back (GUGB)
Founded in 2018, GUGB is the charity initiative of PPN UK and Property Entrepreneur™.
GUGB strives to achieve two clear objectives:
- To promote the mental and physical wellbeing of entrepreneurs
- To raise funds for charitable causes
‘Get Up’ represents our drive for fitness, discipline and accomplishment.
‘Give Back’ represents the motivation and charitable focus of our initiative.
Operation Smile UK
Every year GUGB selects a charity to partner with, and in 2019 our charity of choice was Operation Smile UK.
In the UK, you do not see many people with cleft palates and similar, as the majority are treated within three months of birth and are free of charge on the NHS.
However, this treatment is not available everywhere, due to lack of finance or availability. Children and young adults who remain untreated often suffer the social stigma and health issues from being forced to grow up without a smile.
Operation Smile is an international medical charity who has, to date, provided more than 240,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
GUGB Target 2019
GUGB’s target was to raise enough money to pay for 365 life-changing operations for children around the world, providing a smile a day for an entire year.
Having committed to our cause and announced our aspiration and lofty target, and along with 60 property entrepreneurs, we put our heads down and trainers on to get fighting fit. We ran the Birmingham 10k and half marathon, with the goal of raising £54,750.
Nothing is ever without its challenges. But we drafted our plan, recruited our team and executed relentlessly against the Property Entrepreneur Methodology. After we ran the race, we beat our target and closed the books having raised over £75,000. It was enough to pay for 480 operations, and we broke the world record for the largest single corporate donation in the 28-year history of Operation Smile UK.
Success and failure are both far more predictable than you think.
I will break down the Property Entrepreneur Methodology into five elements to implement in your business. I’ll be using GUGB as a case study, to show you how it’s executed in practice.
The Five Problems
As a property entrepreneur, there are only five problems you will need to overcome. These are:
- Lack of clarity

- Lack of capacity
- Lack of leads

There are three levels, four seasons and five core competencies you need to understand and master.
We are going to focus on the five core competencies, and how to ensure you are getting these basics nailed in your business from today:
