    TSS 22: Tiny Houses in Australia

    In this episode, I talked to AJ from The Joy Box all about Tiny Houses.

    Tiny houses are something that is growing in popularity in the USA, Japan & Canada and we are starting to see the trend here in Australia.

    AJ was only the 4th person in Australia to have a Tiny House so she is a real expert in this space.

    She has also been a real estate investor for over 20 years so she is going to take us through the financial advantages to putting a tiny house on your land as well as how it can help solve Australia’s housing affordability.

    TSS 20: Travelling around Australia with Kids

    TSS 20: Travelling around Australia with Kids

    When we work with clients we help them figure out what success looks like for them. It often doesn’t equate to having more money. Often its wanting to do more travel. 

    So when I saw that my business buddy and mentor Sean Soole was heading around Australia with his wife and primary aged kids for a year I thought this would make an inspiring podcast interview. 

    In this interview we cover:



    * What they did to prepare for their trip

    * How they dealt with school on the road

    * Their favourite places they visited

    * Sean tips for travelling in a caravan

    * Heaps more that will leave you inspired and wanting to visit a caravan expo



    If you have any questions for Sean Soole then you can ask him inside The Savings Squad Facebook community

Love

Great daily tips and tricks 👍🏼

Entertaining finance!

Thanks Adele for this podcast. It’s super relevant and important information delivered in an easy to listen conversation. I just binge listened to the whole series so far rather than a season of something on Netflix. Ha! Feeling motivated to tackle some of those jobs I’ve been putting off.
