so what is millionaire maker, and why are we doing it?
The Touchstone Millionaire maker is a brand new competition, 2018/19 is the first year of running and you are in for a treat!
The competition will consist of 2 teams of judges, Gordon Dutfield teaming up with Aniko Smith, and Abi Hookway joining forces with Paul Smith.
The two judges teams held auditions for the competition on Thursday 1st of November, where applicants were asked to present a 10 minute presentation on their business proposal, and answer a 5 minute speed round of questions, deep diving into their business plan.
In order to enter, applicants must already be taking part in our high level mentoring programme: Platinum Property Mastermind.
Successful applicants have embarked on a journey, building their business, meeting invaluable contacts and ultimately seeking to acquire £1,000,000 in wealth.
In order for their journey to be a success, the two judges panels will each be taking the contenders under their wing, and providing one to one and group mentoring sessions to help their mentees hit the ultimate goal.
The competition will enter it's final stages in a judges house, where mentees will be invited to complete their final mentoring sessions and push their businesses to the next level.
all star judging panel teams:
These TWO teams of judges have carefully selected their chosen candidates for the Millionaire Maker Compeititon. They will personally take candidates under their wing, providing personal mentorship to conquer the challenge of breaking the seven figure barrier.

Aniko and Paul Smith have personally completed millions of pounds worth of property deals, and as a result own a lettings and serviced accommodation management agency, an estate agency, and a property education training company... You guessed it, that's Touchstone.
Paul often refers to Aniko as the brains behind the operation, as she makes sure that each new venture is executed safely, and with absolute precision, allowing Paul to practice his passion - Wealth education training, and helping as many people achieve financial freedom as humanly possible.
