Create you own luck


Create Your Own Luck

I recently celebrated my 30th Birthday. I think 30 is one of those Milestone birthdays that makes you stop to reflect on your life to date and think about your future.

Upon reflection, I feel incredibly blessed to live in a beautiful home with an amazing husband and two beautiful children! From a professional and financial perspective, I am also really proud of what I have achieved. When I started my property investing journey at the age of 18 I had a clear vision to achieve financial freedom through property investing and 12 years later at the age of 30 I can comfortably say that I have achieved what I set out to achieve and more. At the time, my friends were wasting all of their spare cash whilst I was saving and investing mine. No one around me understood what I was doing or why, and it can be difficult and often lonely to stay focused when people around you spread negative energy simply because they do not understand or appreciate your vision. There have been plenty of hurdles and learning experiences along the way but I am really proud of myself for not allowing any distractions to interfere with my ultimate goals. Throughout my journey I have learned so much. I have renovated, subdivided, developed and with every experience my knowledge has grown to a new level and so has my love and passion for property.

Some people look at me that think I am lucky. But I do not believe in Luck! I believe we all create our own Luck! Because of my commitment and focus towards my goals I now have a substantial property portfolio I can be proud of and a thriving mortgage broking business, which allows me to spend every day doing what I love and helping other Australians to achieve their financial goals through property. This has been the direct result of many years of hard work, determination, persistence, dedication and focus.

My reflection also made me realise that I want to dedicate the rest of my life to helping other people achieve financial success through property in their lives, which is why I really appreciate the opportunity to contribute to this Blog. As I continue my journey working towards achieving my new goals, I look forward to sharing my experiences with you through my blogs with the hope that I will inspire you to achieve your property goals. Each of my blog entries will leave you with a message from a lesson that I have learnt through my journey that I hope will help you with your journey.

So for today my message is…

Have a clear vision of your goals, and through hard work, dedication and commitment you will achieve your goals if you do not give up!  Create your own Luck!!

She saved up her first deposit while still living at home with her parents and bought her first property.

She now runs her own mortgage broker firm in Adelaide, along with her husband and, still at just 30 years of age, she is only getting started.
