422 | “I Lost My Safety Net”: A Tale Of Overcoming Loss And Finding Your Own Security – Chat with Jack


As our LAST Episode before Christmas, we’ve got a super heart-warming money transformation in store! 🎄🎅🎁  

Meet Jack: a 29-year-old teacher who grew up on Sydney’s northern beaches. 

From happily living at home, spending his days teaching and in his spare time surfing, his world was turned upside down at the age of 25.   

As this special Summer Series Guest says,   

“I felt like I’d lost my safety net.” 

Suddenly with no backup plan and no clarity about his financial future, he knew he had to make a change.   

Tune in to hear how Jack took control of his finances, from starting his dream small business to his first investing experience…. during a pandemic. 😲 

And did we mention…there’s a failed transplant, a touching list of mentors who have helped Jack along the way, and much, much more?!  

Folks, today’s episode is an extraordinary tale of overcoming loss, having grit and saying, “if it’s to be, it’s up to me.”  

A truly awesome episode that brought a warm feeling to our hearts, a massive thank you to Jack for your sharing your story with us.
