Do you know what steez is? If so, how do you express your steez?
I do, but only after I began frequenting this site on a daily basis. My steez is expressed through the lifestyle I have been able to create for myself and others due the unique approach to investing espoused by myself and others at Knowledge Source.
When you were younger what was your dream occupation?
Every time I tried to envision a dream occupation, I kept coming up with the kind of professions that would offer the opportunity to quickly be freed of professional responsibilities. I wanted to pursue a lucrative career, but I also wanted to be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor.
Who/What inspired you to get into your current field?
A lot of my initial inspiration came from a desire to provide for my family through investing, and the inspiration for Knowledge Source came from a desire to help others do the same.
What is one current trend that excites you?
The property market is on the rise in Australia and elsewhere, and I believe the real estate market is set up nicely for a long period of substantial growth.
What would you consider your biggest accomplishment?
Starting an investment portfolio from scratch that is now worth over $35 million is a point of pride, but I think my biggest accomplishment is the help I provide to others.
What do you think of social media? Has it made an impact on your professional career?
Social media is phenomenal in so many ways, and every time I see a limitation to one of the platforms it is almost immediately addressed.
If you were ever to start again, would you do anything differently?
I would have studied up on investing much earlier than I did, but I certainly cannot complain about the way things have worked out in the end.
What do you see for the future?
I am looking forward to more time spent mentoring aspiring investors while continuing to run Knowledge Source and manage my own investment portfolio.
What’s one piece of advice you can tell our readers?
There is no limit to what can be accomplished as long as you are willing to commit yourself to constant self-improvement.
