472 | “We’re Moving to Kalgoorlie!”: Sacrifices, Savings, and Three Investment Properties Later – Chat with Amy

 

This week’s episode is about many things… 

💎 The boundless rewards that come from delayed gratification,
📚 The enlightening power of financial empowerment, and…
🧑‍🌾 Getting out of your comfort zone by heading to the outback.  

Meet Amy, today’s brave and resourceful Summer Series guest!  

Growing up with “tangible money values”, Amy would spend her early 20’s prioritising life experiences over financial gain until the age of 26 when she made 1 life-changing decision…  

This would completely change her financial future and allow her and Sam, her wife, to leap onto the property ladder in less than a year.   

Tune in to hear what this revolutionary decision was, their experience moving from the East Coast to the Outback and their diverse property investing journey.    

From their first hands-on property investment to the land purchase near Byron Bay to the joint venture with her parents, Amy’s story has many chapters full of laughs and good lessons along the way.  

An episode for those who are willing to get outside their comfort zone to get into the property game, listen in now! 

 

 

P.S. Did we mention…Amy’s been a Property Couch listener for 9 years?! What an honour to talk to a long-time listener 😊🌌✨
