As a professional real estate consultant with your private business Ayla & Associates and a mega client Hujan Asset Management corporation you have proved your sharp real estate strategic skills and high intellectual wisdom on the global real estate market. You are the legend of the South East Asia Pacific in the real estate industry.
Could you please share the key real estate perspectives which were major key performance indicators from 2019 and how did the pandemic changed the market by 2020? What do you see as the future of real estate by 2020 Q4 and 2021?
I was doing Qualitative Research from March to June and speaking to almost 500 speakers from over 100 countries in over 60 conference. Real Estate is very strategically connected to 200 industries. Its complexities need detailed understanding what is happening in the market and what does it relate to real estate. I think in any market people still need real estate. Real Estate is essential but the understanding trends and market are crucial factor and strategic in leadership level. I think people won’t travel for work and home will become more importance than ever. I think real estate residential in good area near beach or mountain price will be steady. Because there’s huge lifestyles shift. Commercial Real Estate will have drop in rental values and we need to define the instruct value to add in the estate.
Shifted lifestyle will be affected like virtual office and virtual meetings and there’s GIG ECONOMY which will force Entrepreneurship and if you are able to provide solution on rental based by shifting and following trends, technology and health then I think you should be able to survive.
You are very enthusiastic and passionate about real estate and your business growth has certainly proved that and yet you are also a very influential philanthropist and founder of WWLC, World Women Leading Change Conference which is about pushing women entrepreneurs in particular for a better future.
Please share a few key insights about the initiative, what is it and what does it stand for and what is your vision of it?
In 2014 My mom was sick for 9 months in ICU. Having a successful careers turn out its not as meaningful when you don’t add value to peoples’ live, because our lives are borrowed to us. My PHD research shows women influence decision making on estate purchase and woman’s womb is the first estate for human being. I think is important to all business people to have the real brand which is the SOCIAL IMPACT which you add to peoples’ life. WWLC vision is to empower women trough my journey in real estate with my real estate leading change inclusiveness, where I try to CHANGE real estate not just an estate but as real HOME for many women who is not as lucky as I am. Empower them not to ever give up.
I have many programs in real estate energy management and campaign about resilience in real estate in specific area such as disaster management, and leadership of mindfulness and will be duplicate everywhere.
I would like to establish a legacy that will create a social impact environment globally. WWLC was founded in December 2018, I decided to focus on women and youth empowerment causes, dedicated to my single-parent mother, Princess Tetty Yulianty.
I founded this movement and sit in Global Chair of the World Woman Leading Change for the next 3 years which is transformational from Woman Leader Indonesia Network, in co-operation with the Woman Leader International Network Global Chair with establishment in 20 countries.
My aspiration is to lead the impact and create changes of business which is striving social impact and brand incubator in the world from various sector and my focus is in real estate and technology specifically for youth and women. The woman empowerment program was established to create changes towards strategic leadership from numerous fields, such as education, real estates, lifestyles, shipyard, culture, creative ummah, technology, oil and gas, mining, farming, media, television, music, wellness, fashion, beauty and art.
WWLC which contain companies from women with 15 years experience and lead inclusiveness and world class branding towards conferences and education around the world, action like changing disable phrase to Difable Different abilities in London Oxford Dictionary and create beyond art and beyond fashion brand from children with autistic and down syndrome creating power lunch worldwide that enable women to share views and knowledge. Creating retail home based from core product. I also launched books World Women Leading Change that launch in British Parliament house of common in May 2019. With Minister and Parliament also world changer from around the world
World Women Leading Change also fighting so many issues such as poverty, youth suicide, women trafficking, rapist, child labor. Today WWLC presence with top class business women who pioneer invention and innovation and WWLC is women empowerment worldwide with approximately 3 million communities members in 25 Countries.
From a strategic and professional perspective what would you recommend to sophisticated investors who have invested heavily in real estate and are experiencing large losses in the current market? Is there a way to somehow sustain the damage or control the market drop?
Loss in the real estate is accumulated when you exit. As long as you don’t exit you don’t call it a loss. I think its time to buy, of course if you have liquidity to buy. The real estate market never drops. I think solution is needed I have few solutions under my consulting Ayla Associate. But I think for business is just stay put. Stay alive in 2020 is already kind of profit for me. If you are alive you can plan more. Market is depending on supply and demand. If you can stay put no drop sales than no market down.
Real estate it’s not 1 single industries its complete understanding of market supply and demand but as I said its time to buy. Owner are willing to negotiate but also we need to carefully choose which deal because estate deal take years to accomplish its not like trade. Estate is long term investment if you looking for short time than stock market is better option the tricks is to make your real estate always liquid.
Another point, is that Ayla Associate is using a platform as apps we are planning to launch real estate block chain by using commercial trade and sell small piece of your real estate to maintain liquidity. Using smart contract conversion or future value of real estate. This is connected to my world women leading change as incubator of business for women and youth with over 3 million member communities solving their issues of rental by buying shares in the estate as solution package for rental aggregator in real estate. Another things that you don’t actually enjoy the capital gain before you exit and with this platform small company or small people who doesn’t have access to capital market because of the difficulties can enjoy the platform.
I want to teach people how to create values and wealth using estate in their lives. Real estate is pipeline in all industries.
You inspire many entrepreneurs around the world to act fearlessly and keep pushing forward until you reach success, especially women who are your biggest followers. What would you recommend for early entrepreneurs who are just starting and have big visions and hopes by doing private business? Please share your knowledge, especially the early mistakes and difficulties that you have experienced in the beginning of your career, how do you overcome difficulties?
I think first you need to love what you do, this way you are at peace with yourself. If you are at peace with your self than you have what we call CLARITY. When you are happy and have CLARITY you can think better. Its important to have POWER IN YOU. In fact, I conducted training in Bali for this so that young people can FIND themselves first. Once you have enormous control about your Higher you than nothing can ever stop you. Not even disaster or pandemic.
If you aware Einstein never found relativity theory when he was Professor in Princeton, he found this theory in Bern at very very very early stage of his life. Only after a decade he decided to publish it. When you are at peace with yourself you understand that failure is process of your journey and accepting it as part of learning curve and process in your career.
I really start from humble beginning, and I think my relationship with Inner me is very strong so I develop strong intuition allowing myself to overcome each failure and becoming a better me everyday. Trying new way to find solutions and develop every day. Many people are even afraid to try out their ideas. I think we have only one chance one life to do what we want to do why don’t we try, instead of telling ourselves we cant do it. Try to ask how can we do it? What’s is wrong in the old strategy how can I make it better? Many people don’t have good relationship with themselves, and this is important very very very important to have peace with yourself. Because its the only way to success when you have clarity. And stay away from negative people who is very short minded take huge step back and always pause, if you don’t know ask guidelines if you don’t know than have people with more experience to guide you. Be very very mindful of peace of mind and don’t trade it with anything and don’t be afraid to tell people you don’t like them, be honest to yourself and to others because people who love you will stay with you no matter what. And there’s reason why some people must be away from you. Be fearless about your idea and be stubborn on it but be always adaptive with the way your going to pursue it. Have clarity in your vision and keep in over and over in your mind.
Also, you need to have mentor. Someone who guide you going through ups and downs of life, someone who believes in you before you believe in your capability. We are humans we distance to do greater things in life. And guide is important to have as it helps you find many answers that maybe you can’t reveal alone. Make sure the mentor is practicing what they advise you. You can only be guided by people who have been there. Not just theories – you can learn theories from books but business always have X factors that do not exist in any theories
Remember, you need to have a community of people who can help you network and I must say trusted communities. This is why I’m making WWLC to have likeminded people who lead changes using their heart. Not only using their mind. Your network is youth net worth. Because you cant never do things alone and reach far. You need to also take part in these communities – no free lunch in life. You need to also do your part. You cant expect people give if you don’t give first. I don’t believe in business there’s no such business in this life. What exist in relationship, with this pandemic rising we even need people to collaborate because we cant travel but if we have trusted network to help us do our work or business in the other part of the world then it becomes easier to leverage your idea. Be always a giver than a taker this will save you a lot. Fight for every smiling face that says thank you to you. They are powerful because they will give good resonance or frequency, and if you have good frequency then I think only greater and greater things will happen to you. But you also must take part in communities, at any given times because its shows your strength as personal.
Keep in mind, you need to be always a beginner and start up, and keep learning read books go to conferences take courses and travel a lot. Only by learning a lot you will have a lot of knowledge and have wisdom to act as business is VUCA. Maybe you can adopt intrinsic value of your industries by adapting solution from different Industry. Keep open the eyes and huge possibilities around you. Keep learning until no more degree can be enough.
Last but not least, pray and I mean it. 99 % people don’t believe in prayers but I do. Praying is another way to send resonance energy to universe. You will be surprised by the power of praying because sometimes God don’t send you answers directly instead you will be given what is suitable for you in that particular time. I think there’s always amazing journey behind every successful entrepreneur. And sometimes God removes people in your life for a reason as long as you do your part to be kind, then God will settle others things for you.
You are also very well known as a real estate business developer who can buy estate for as little as nothing and sell it as high as tens and hundreds of millions of dollars. Can you share the secret? Hahaha its a secret I only reveal it when you are my client or someone i pick to go and chase the abundance of life.
