Episode 224 | Turia Pitt – From Burned Alive to Investing in Grit, Triumph and Property

Folks, it’s likely that today’s guest — Turia Pitt — needs little or no introduction!

Chances are, her name’s familiar to you… and that’s because Turia became a household name when, at 24, her life was turned upside down when she became trapped in a grass fire while competing in a 100km ultramarathon.

And not only did she manage to SURVIVE the severe burns to 65% of her body… she’s also gone on to absolutely THRIVE in an ultimate story of triumph!

Indeed, Turia has well and truly beaten the odds and is inspiring others all over the country to never lose sight of their goals, dreams or who they are with her 7-step coaching course, School of Champions – a guide to getting unstuck, ditching your excuses, overcoming all kinds of barriers and making things happen. Plus, she’s gone on to deliver some truly brilliant speeches across the globe and is the author of several books, including the newly released The Good Selfie as well as Unmasked and Everything to Live For.

On top of that, she’s also an ambassador for Interplast Australia & New Zealand and to date, has helped raise almost $1 million dollars in donations and $3 million dollars in awareness. Her humanitarian doesn’t stop there, Turia has also been busy working on Haapii, a foundation with the overall aim of providing kids in developing countries with the best educational resources possible!

So, yep… she’s a VERY inspiring lady indeed!

And obviously, we’ve got her on for a few reasons…

  1. Her story is jaw-dropping
  2. Her mindset tips break the Richter scale — (next level lessons to help you here!)

Episode 57 | The Headwinds are Coming

The whole idea for this podcast is to help others become successful property investors (or perhaps avoid them becoming unsuccessful property investors). But Bryce and Ben know that the more successful you become, the more likely you are to be criticised. Unfortunately, it is far easier for people to share their thoughts on what you are doing wrong and when something does turn up a little haywire, you would get the usual , “I told you so”.

Now, this is probably very different from the usual topics that we talk about in this podcast but Bryce and Ben have both gone through this journey. In fact, they are still facing these situations occasionally. So in this podcast, they are sharing some of their experiences and also some positive mental attitude tips that helped them along the way. To have a successful property portfolio, you’ll need to make sure you are ready for it and it’s not always about being financially ready. It’s also about having a strong mental attitude. In addition, they will also be sharing what they think are the traits of successful people as opposed to the unsuccessful ones.


Some of the motivational speakers mentioned in the podcast:

  • Zig Ziglar – more
  • Tim Ferris – more
  • Tom Panos & John McGrath – more
  • Trevor Hendy – more
