    Ep 114 - Financial Resilience Empowering Women to Empower the Future

    Ep 114 - Financial Resilience Empowering Women to Empower the Future

    Join me for this episode as we reflect on the intricate tapestry of history to understand the evolution of gender roles and their impact on our lives today and how significant events like wars have necessitated shifts in responsibilities, altering the perceptions of men and women in society 
     
    I discuss the  temporary empowerment of women during the Second World War and the subsequent societal push back to traditional roles, examining how these historical patterns influence the modern workforce and the complex balance between professional aspirations and family obligations.
     
    In this thought-provoking episode , I turn the attention to the modern landscape of gender roles and financial equality. I share a revealing anecdote that sparks a conversation about the importance of financial literacy and the shifting paradigms of men's and women's roles in contemporary society. 
     
    The discussion also looks into the profound influence of the internet on social structures and encourages listeners to embrace innovative thinking, challenging the entrenched stereotypes that have long defined us.
     
    Concluding with a powerful argument for financial resilience, this episode implores both men and women to embrace fiscal independence as a form of empowerment. 
     
    Discover how financial autonomy can reduce strain in relationships, challenge the traditional breadwinner model, and contribute to a healthier, more inclusive society. 
     
    I leave you with strategies to examine your own money habits and inspire a shift towards a future where financial resilience paves the way for a wealthy and fulfilling life.

    Ep 113: Are you leaving money on the table with Vicki Wusche

    This week, I pulled back the curtain on my life in this industry, sharing the beats of property viewings and negotiations. 
     
    With tales of a four-hour drive to scope out prospects, and the stamina needed to tackle ten viewings in a single day, I weave a narrative of a profession that's as demanding as it is rewarding. 
     
    It's a glimpse into a world where strategy and knowledge are currency, and where every deal struck is a step closer to harmonising our personal and professional tunes.
     
    Managing a property concierge and project management service is akin to conducting an orchestra; it's about ensuring each section comes in at the right time, creating a symphony of success. 
     
    This episode reveals the art of juggling commitments, from month-long trips to the Maldives to staying plugged into the pulse of the business. 
     
     
    For those poised to dive into property investment or ignite their own sourcing venture, this episode is a mentor's guiding hand.
