On this episode of The Business Mastermind Podcast, Gavin is joined again after a long time by Jay Munoz to talk about metamorphosis after the title of Jay’s best selling book ‘Property Metamorphosis’ as well as talking about his own journey of metamorphosis. The conversation includes the thinking and the mindset involved in wanting to change your path and how you can feel confident, equipped and what you need to learn to be able to kickstart your own metamorphosis.



  • I started investing in property as a hobby alongside my career as a chartered engineer. I was comfortable and getting pay rises, but in 2014 I read an article that said “if you don’t like your job, quit it”. I didn’t like my job and who I was so I decided to quit my job within a year and a year later I was a property developer. Last year, in 2020 I wrote my own book for others to read about my metamorphosis and hopefully they can see themselves going on the same journey.
  • Every time you embark on a new journey I think about this quote: “In order to have the best life possible, you have to first know what the best decisions are and have the courage to make them.” I knew at the time that that was the time that I wanted to spend more time with my family and the people that I love rather than spending all my energy on commuting and doing my job. I now have the privilege and the flexibility to return home to Columbia to spend time with my parents, who aren’t very well as well as spending more time with my family at home. 
  • Hire a mentor. My mentor was the catalyst to get to where I am right now. But, make sure you do your due diligence on them and choose the one that will work best for your goals and that you share the same values. If you don’t share the same values move on and find someone else.
  • Once you have the right tools it’s down to you to implement them until that becomes reality to you. Every single deal that I analysed before my first HMO – my first domino – got me closer and closer, I was getting quicker at analysing deals, there was another relationship I made with a new agent that got me closer to my goals.
  • The biggest challenge for an entrepreneur is to balance your time efficiently, we only have 1440 minutes in a day, what we do with every single minute makes a difference. If you’re not careful you give it away very easily; an hour of your time is 4.8% of your day – if you don’t sleep. My AFL journal helps people with that, to write down smart goals, helps keep them accountable, helps people to review what they learn, helps with being grateful every single day because you need to write down at the beginning and end of every day what you’re grateful for. This works not only for property development, but for life.



‘One of my key values is always to learn. Ignorance is very expensive.’

‘My courage came from the fact I wanted something different.’

‘Your goals need to be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound.’

‘Once the first domino is down, that creates the momentum for your to become unstoppable.’

‘You have to turn your failures into advantages and learn from them. You are not made in a crisi, you’re revealed positive or negative. You’ve got to be relentless.’

Jay Munoz was born in Colombia and enjoyed a privileged upbringing. His parents were teachers when they met but his father became a successful doctor and his mother became involved in property development. Growing up in this environment shaped Jay’s work ethics, and his love for building.

Jay saw civil engineering as a way of improving lives; transport connections, power supplies and buildings all make a massive contribution. After a few years in the construction industry, he left Colombia for the UK.

After gaining an MSc from Surrey University, he set out to find a job. He sent out 30,000 CVs and was offered 5 jobs. He went on to work on some great projects including:

The London Underground

Construction of the Wallbrook in London

EDF new nuclear power station at Hinkley point C, worth £20billon

Then he read Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and he knew he had to have his own business. Along with his friend Liam, they set up Assets for Life which ticks all Jay’s boxes; he can share and help other people and improve lives through building and development.
