“I worked hard my entire life and I had nothing to show for it…” 


Folks these are the words from today’s super special guest before she began her complete financial and self-described personal transformation.   

Born into an amazing family with terrible money management…Jessica learned the value of being financially independent from a young age.  

So how did she end up selling the first house she built…with multiple debts…and “walking away with nothing…”?! 

Tune in to find out now and discover the amazing, breathtaking journey she’s been on since then. 

From a lucky break with her first property to borrowing her mum’s life savings to building half a house, today’s multi-chaptered saga is truly a nail-biting, heart-warming tale with lots of laughs along the way.  

A true inspiration to investors everywhere – A huge THANK YOU to Jessica for sharing your story on the couch today.
