Show notes

Any experienced real estate investor that tells you they’ve never had a fail or made a bad decision is lying!

Having personally invested for over two decades, purchased dozens of properties and helped thousands of Australians by billions of dollars in real estate, I can say that most of my decisions have paid off handsomely. 

But my first investment – and perhaps my greatest lesson – was a doozie. 

$30,000 went down the sink, and whilst it was painful to experience, I’m so grateful that it happened.
