Ellie McKay and Nathan Winch
When friendships become great business, with Ellie McKay ♥️

Spent today chilling with Ellie McKay, businesswoman and podcaster, discussing business, life, targets and holidays! Over lunch in sunny Doncaster, naturally. We talked so much about how you need to let go of the little things so that you can focus on the bigger things. We also discussed how you need to be ruthless with your time, otherwise people won’t respect it. I’ve been on a bit of a ‘sanitise’ lately, shedding all the things that drain my time and resource and give me nothing in return. Because why?

We often get dragged into the stuff that gives us the most problems and the least return, ignoring the things that take up the least time and produce the highest return. I’m certainly guilt of it. Which is why I’m stepping away (for the second time) from angel investing in start ups, moving deeper into our private equity investment activity at Winch & Co. Without sounding too cliché, Ellie also showed me that I need to focus on myself, too. As we step up the level of deals and sophistication in our business, I need to make sure that I’m not left behind – staying on top of my own personal development.

I’m also super happy to be on onboarding with Ellie as one of her investors in her property investment company, Combined Property. I don’t normally fund other people’s deals, but I have followed Ellie McKay for a while and we have become good friends over the last year with her. She is a credible property developer with lots of experience between her and her team, so it was a no brainer for me.

I’m looking forward to working with her into the future on this and other projects.
