Follow me on Twitter: @4_walls Hi there, My name is Vanessa Warwick and I am a former TV Presenter, turned full-time property investor/Landlady and property consultant/public speaker. I am also co-founder of a property network and a social media consultancy with my husband, Nick Tadd. You can read our investor biography here Early on in ourinvestment career, myself and Nick realised that there was strength in numbers and that "none of us is as smart as all of us". We started building a network of like-minded people to share knowledge, deals, and contacts with and through that, 4 Walls and a Ceiling was born. Prior to becoming involved in property, I was a VJ on MTV for nine years, and also a Director of Music Programming where I directed concerts and music documentaries for such artists as Motorhead, Ricky Martin, Coldplay, and Keane. When I met my husband Nick, in 2002, he proved to be a catalyst for a new direction in my life - property investing. We now have a portfolio of investment properties in excess of £5 million with significant positive cash flow from the rent. Throughout our business, we have adopted a very unique business model that has proven to be very successful, even in the challenging market conditions. To be 100% clear, we are not a property club. We aim to provide free resources to investors and foster positive change within property. Our website is part of a changing movement within property investment and the way people interact and contribute value to others on-line. 4Walls exists to spread specific ideas and ethical and transparent investing practices. The more people we can spread these ideas to, the more success we achieve. We are not building a list of subscribers to sell to - we are building a cult of supporters, each of whom will further support the cause and bring further success to all of us through the momentum of the group. A business "eco system", so to speak. Our core values: ethical practices, reciprocity, integrity, transparency, consistency, and respect. Our investing philosophy in four words: Cash flow is King! The Property Tribes Forum is our on-line community where we promote discussion, education, and networking. (Launched February 2009) Property Tribes TV is where we interview members of the property community to hear their strategies and views. (Launched 2009) Property Tribes Trading Post is the place where the tribe can trade. (Launched August 2011). Yulpa is our new tech product where the tribe can organise their property business. (Launched August 2011). Our proudest moment in property. Read my entry on WikiPedia >>> here.

"Vanessa Just wanted to say thanks once again for the support you gave me yesterday in getting set up with social media - in particular, all the women you connected me with on twitter. I have over 250 emails in my box this morning, mostly from twitter, and 47 direct messages to my twitter text, so you really made a big difference to my followers! It was a great day. You and Nick went out of your way to provide exceptional value. I feel I'm very much on track (with a lot to do, I know to get everything set up.) Thanks for suggesting the day with Nick. It has made a huge difference to me and the business. Very much appreciated. Almira"

"Vanessa is a forward thinking, inspiring and incredibly helpful mentor, friend and colleague and I am proud to have her as my contact. With just one meeting she altered my perception of many things and from her I gained confidence, inspiration and extremely good company :) Rock on sister :)"

" I had the pleasure of meeting Vanessa briefly at the "Social Media SM2 Reseller Retreat" at Warren House on the 28th of January 2010! Unfortunately there was not time for a 121, which I hope we will find time for when I come back - because I am sure that Vanessa is just as interesting a person IRL as she comes across here on Ecademy - judging from the great comments and questions she had during the seminar! With best wishes for future Prosperous Networking, "

" I am writing testimonials for all those Ecademates who have really meant something to me in 2009. Vanessa, you are wonderful and really mean a lot to me. A highlight of 2009 has been getting to know you and Nick and I look forward to both collaborating on more work projects together and spending more time with the two of you as friends in 2010. I loved putting together your community blog story for ecademy and learning about your earlier career with MTV and how you met Nick. The two of you make such a great team. You are definitely the light and flame of his life :) I have been so impressed by your blogs, your sense of community, the values and passion you put into social media tribes and property tribes. Property tribes has become a leading forum and I enjoyed your Christmas speech (like the queen). Loving your holiday let in Camber Sands having seen your video blog too! 2009, amongst other things... has seen you introduce the pioneering #theNTshow on Twitter (we enjoyed our interview immensely) and develop your social web consulting and social media tribes - it is clear why you are in demand and I recommend you times a billion!... Also your brilliant property forum property tribes has been growing so well and provides benefits to all those getting involved. Your blogs, your video blogs, your interviews, your networks, your involvement with Nick's speeches all - insightful and engaging... informative... a consistent team effort and awesome mix with the "benefit of others" in mind for sure. You are in my thoughts and prayers right now with the sadness of Nick's mum going to heaven and you have my support, as a friend who cares and in whatever I can do for you. You are genuine, humble, loving, warm, considerate, cool, stylish, "HUG" and have such a natural flair for presenting and for bringing together #likeminds and seeking innovation and change for the benefit of many. I truly value the magnificent gift of having you as a wonderful supportive friend and highly recommend you as a genuine engaging networker. Thank you for all the phone calls, skype chats, meetings and online conversations. value them all. Nick is lucky to have you and should be proud of you - a sparkling angel who lights up the room whether in person or online. I am honoured to be in your network and wish for you all that you need in 2010 to continue your journey with sparkle and gusto and keep burning that bright light which emanates from you and reaches out to others as your successes come. Thank you for reaching out to me. God Bless, with love Ces xxx email: "

"I've known Vanessa for 2 years now, initially through exploring property investment and now through developing my Social Media awareness, together with her husband Nick Tadd. Vanessa is a professional through and through as well as having depths of caring and commitment to whatever she applies herself. She has a genuine desire to expand the "Know Me, Like Me, Follow Me" philosophy and has helped me enormously with establishing and building my profile through Ecademy and other media. A great support and mentor, a valuable counsellor and (I consider) a true friend. "

Ann Moore

"I m working with Nick Tadd on a social media project and thats how I knew about 4walls and Property Tribes. I wanted some advice about renting out a property and Vanessa was amazing. Incredibly helpful and professonal - she has a lot of personal experience that she shared and masses of knowledge and contacts in the business. She knows the pitfalls and she knows the ways and people who can help you around them. I wouldnt hesitate in recommending her. "

"Vanessa is a real delight to have in your network. Not only is she exceptionally capable within her chosen specialist field of property investment, but also is generous with her time and advice as a human being. If you are looking for a property investor who's truly independent and trustworthy - look no further. I am hugely looking forward to doing more collaborative work with Vanessa over the forthcoming years. Richard "

"What can I say, there is no way I could have achieved what I have without the support of my wife Vanessa. Her understanding of business is outstanding and of property un-questionable. She has always been there to support me, but not only that to support anyone who could benefit from her advice. I know I am going to be biased but ... you would do well to have her in your network. By"

David Nunn

"Vanessa and her husband Nick are true entrepreneurs in property investment and good friends of mine. I've known them for oiver 4 yrs now and can recommend Vanessa as not only a speaker but also a "guru" on property investment. Thanks for your support at last night's presentation on "Wealth Creation & Protection" at Weybridge Ecademy. I have had nothing but positive feedback afterwards! Well done and happy networking! Cheers, David"
