478 | What Happens When Money is Used to Control: How She Escaped It & Overcame Scarcity & Gender Wealth Inequality – Chat with Amanda


For our final episode in our 2024 Summer Series, we’re welcoming Amanda, an extraordinary guest who is not only a TPC listener but also an empowering qualified property investment advisor at Ben’s advisory!   

Today, she’s sharing an incredibly eye-opening and gut-wrenching story…  

Amanda grew up in an environment where…

“Money was frequently used as one of the tools on the coercive control toolbelt by my dad… There was also financial inequity between the males and females in my family growing up.”   

From battling psychological, physical and financial abuse to rebuilding her family’s life from scratch after a life-changing epiphany, we’re unpacking a tale that demonstrates Amanda’s strength and determination at every turn.   

But this story isn’t just about Amanda.   

We also get to celebrate how her inspirational supermum escapes from this abusive relationship and takes control of her future – also using property as a vehicle! 🙌🙌🙌      

This episode explores the scars that are left from financial abuse, the determination and bravery it takes to start again, and the financial disparity (be it finances, property investing or superannuation) that still exists between men and women.  


It’s a truly impactful and heartwarming story – we’re finishing our 2024 Summer Series with a guest we’re so proud to have on the couch and in our team.
