I think that this show is excellent at showing people what I already know, that business is fun, challenging, rewarding and that business does not need to be stuffy. Alan himself is a great character as well and even though I don’t agree with the way the TV show would have everyone believe that business works, I think his remarks are excellent and just getting one remark makes the whole show worth watching.

His insight into why he chooses people is excellent, he may not be the best businessman in the country but there are little snippets you can pick up from this expert he has a wealth of experience that has led him to a great profit.

I said in an article a couple of months ago that a large portion of Alan’s wealth was now being made out of property investing and what I didn’t say was that I thought he is no longer really having as great a success in his other business operations as he could have. Because I felt that he made some wrong decisions when he did have market share. That said he is still one of the countries richest men and will stay that way thanks to his Real Estate ventures.

Anyway last night in the show, he said that his business interests were now mainly heading towards real estate. Which I’m sure at some point he will say that have made him more money than all of his other business interests put together.
