476 | From $30k Debt to a $2.78M Portfolio: How He Rebuilt His Finances and Confidence After a Failed Business Venture – Chat with James

 

Imagine waking up to find yourself $30,000 in debt with a restaurant business turned bad and a great deal of self-doubt left in its wake.

Now fast forward a decade or so to find… 

You’ve amassed a $2.78 million property portfolio; you are now confident on your path to helping others and you are financially empowered.  

This is the rollercoaster ride of James, today’s articulate and inspirational Summer Series guest. 

From growing up “material poor but experience rich” in the heart of Canada (You’ll have to tune in to find out how this Aussie family found themselves in the remote province of Manitoba) to running a successful bar business that ended in disaster, we’re tracing the peaks and troughs in James’ career and financial life. 

Together, we unpack how he snowballs out of this debt, the advantages that come from having a wonderful accountability partner and wife, and his passionate pathway to self-development. 

Plus, we’ll dive into that heart-dropping moment that this self-professed “enthusiastic amateur” realised HE was working alongside spruikers 😮  

Yet another fantastic story that highlights the importance of smart money management, resilience, the power of financial education and so much more!  

Thank you for coming to the couch to share your story, James! Listen now folks.

465 | How This Family Can Afford their Year-Long Holiday While Building Their Portfolio

 

We’ve always said that property investing is a process not an event but…

How does one successfully match this process with ongoing family, life AND travel goals to achieve it all?!? 🏡🌟 

Folks, in today’s episode, we’re revealing how it’s possible through two real-life case studies!   

In our first case study, “Scratching the Itch”, we’re exploring how a young family who is looking to spend a memorable year travelling with their young ones can achieve this while continuing to work towards buying their forever home.  

 In the next case study, “Older Demographics Need Help Too!”, we chart the path that Linda, a 54-year-old Zookeeper can take to achieve her dream retirement without sacrificing her current lifestyle.  

We’ll be deep-diving into the problems and life-changing epiphanies each of these brave investors have had, along with the exact steps and plans we created to help each of them achieve it all.  

From the power of prioritisation to seeing what is possible, we’re highlighting the many advantages of seeking professional advice.  A seriously motivational and practical episode for all, give it a listen now!
