  • A Genuine Property Plan
    A Genuine Property Plan
    Selecting the right investment property as part of your overall wealth building strategy is critical to your long-term success. All too often I see people making poor decisions based on short-term thinking, and a focus purely on numbers. The numbers are a critical aspect but they don’t create desirability - a quality property and a walkable community that becomes a tightly held blue-chip area. They are just numbers and all too often that’s all people see, partly because the property…

  • Why Do We Experience Stress?
    Why Do We Experience Stress?
    What are the 5 main reasons we experience stress? 1. We do not clearly define what is truly most important to us - our highest priority or priorities - and focus our attention on what is most meaningful and productive in our lives and we end up having to put out fires all day doing lower priority tasks and other people's agendas. 2. We set unrealistic expectations on ourselves and others by expecting ourselves or others to do actions that…

  • The Secret of My Success
    The Secret of My Success
    Often people ask me what the “secret to my success” in life or business is. Ultimately they hope there is a special ingredient, a special sales technique or some secret magic pill they can take. This is actually half true. Let me explain why. To achieve anything of value (be it health, financial freedom, creating a successful life coaching business etc.) you need persistence. Long-term persistence can't happen if it's attached to something that changes often such as: other people's…

  • Australia’s Top 10 Boomtowns And The Realities Of Investing
    Australia’s Top 10 Boomtowns And The Realities Of Investing
    I read some data recently which highlighted investors’ psychology when buying property, with 80% of investors saying they are buying for the long term - yet within 5 years, 50% have sold out. That’s not even one market cycle; forget long term, that’s not even short term in my books. Short term is 10 years minimum, and long term is 30 years plus. The average life expectancy is 79.5 years, so what about building wealth beyond your own life? That’s…

  • Where Does Money Fit Into The Big Picture of Life?
    Where Does Money Fit Into The Big Picture of Life?
    It is a story we all know well, when man first came into existence, he created families and the families started to multiply and create communities. As communities emerged and numbers grew, we formed cities and it was here that we started to differentiate classes of society based on skill level and assets.   The history of money spans thousands of years and in the beginning money had no meaning, in fact there was no money, but rather an exchange…

  • The Power of Intention
    The Power of Intention
    Before you start anything in life it is very important to remember that everything begins with your intention. So the first question you should learn to ask yourself is, "What is my intention?" Keep in mind that intention without action is a delusion so make sure every intention you set is followed through with focussed, educated action. Intention allows you to do two core things; focus our energy on that which you desire most and influence the nature of your…

  • Is The Market Too Hot?
    Is The Market Too Hot?
    We are without a doubt in the middle of a strong property boom, with Sydney and Melbourne leading the way. For those of you that were with me three years ago, you will recall me saying what is coming. The hard thing for investors is to trust the data and buy when everyone is holding back, but if you look at the pricing many people bought for three years back, it seems like an obvious thing now. The boom isn’t…

    10 Inspiring Business Lessons
    1. Confidence Trap When you’re busy you often accomplish and create much more. The more intensely you’re focused and active and the longer you maintain such a focus, the faster your accomplishments. Time spent on doubt, fear, or low-priority actions slows down your accomplishments. When your mind is focused on your dreams, you don’t have time for the many self-doubts that block them. 2. Raise Your Standard Anything you do takes time. To maximise the value of your time, prioritise…
