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.
