Women’s Investment Circle

By

I am truly inspired by the wonderful women I come across who are as passionate about property as I am. A couple of weeks ago I decided to canvas interest amongst my work colleagues and friends in starting a women’s property investment circle.  The idea was to meet up now and again and exchange ideas and strategies for the common goal of educating and supporting each other in our investment journey. 

I sent an email to my like-minded female friends (who contacted their friends and so on) to gauge interest. I created a Facebook Group for those who couldn’t meet up but could still contribute and feel included on an ongoing basis, especially important for those who didn’t live closeby or had other commitments.  Those of us who enjoy social media now have a great place to chat and run idea’s past each other and share photo’s of renovations we are involved in.

We had our first catch up last Sunday in Rockingham and it went really well.  Newby investors learned a lot from the more experienced members and those who have been in the game for a while were re-invigorated by the enthusiasm that comes from sharing an interest and different personal strategies.

If you reside in WA (or want to invest in WA) and are interested in joining the group please send the ‘Group’ a private message (PM) on Facebook advising your property investment interest/experience and request to be added. Please include your email address to assist in the add. Called ‘WA Women’s Property Investment Circle’ the Group is ‘closed’ meaning only members can see posts as we discuss our personal situations and strategies. Only genuine interest please from those ladies who are actively investing in WA or about to do so.

It can be difficult sometimes in our everyday lives to find people who share our interests and the group is a great way to satisfy those needs for me. Of course we are in the very early stages and a couple of women left with assignments to come back to the group with. It was a lot of fun and something that I encourage anyone in any state to start up with like minded friends or work colleagues.

    Good on you Lisa, this is a great concept and I'm really pleased to see you are using your experience and knowledge to help others. The property market is full of pitfalls and misinformation, as you are well aware, so having a group like this should give others confidence to take control. To those looking into joining Lisa's circle, I can tell you that I have been looking after Lisa's tax affairs for many years now and I assure you that Lisa's experience has been well earned.
