    163 - Bernadette Janson Talks To Lucy About Why Your Own Home Is A Good Place To Learn About Renovation

    Renovating for profit can be stressful. A lot of things can and do go wrong. Lucy is one of our rising stars whose renovating journey started by accident. She renovated her own home, fell in love with renovating, and sold her home in order to start building up a property portfolio. She said:

    “Renovating your own home is an awesome way to start because it's safe and you can take your time with it.”

    Lucy is one of our Wonder Women rising stars. From the moment I met her I got the sense that she is destined for greatness in the renovation business. She is the kind of person who decides she wants something and then really goes for it. I invited her to chat to me on a live broadcast of She Renovates about how she started renovating for profit. Listen to her inspiring story.

    159 - Looking Back At The Wonder Women Class Project

    We put out the call to see who would be interested in contributing and getting involved in a renovation that we paid for in cash. Out of twenty applicants we ended up with a team of fourteen wonderful, dedicated team members who all pulled their weight.



    It was a project full of challenges - some due to the pandemic but others were simply examples of the things that can, and do, go wrong during a renovation project.



    Three of our team members joined me to look back over the project to discuss the highs and lows, and everything they learnt working as part of a big team. Listen to my chat with James Burgin, Christine Boundy and Sheree Lamb.





    EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:


    [01:15] The idea behind the Class Project
    [02:23] The value of the large group
    [07:14] The few natural roles that came out of the Class Project
    [08:17] James Burgin ended up being the Roof Guy
    [9:35] A project requires intense research
    [11:37] The strategies for sourcing trades in the face of the pandemic
    [13:27] The nasty surprises
    [16:18] The advantage of using a buyer’s agent
    [16:37] Wow factor
    [19:00] Sheree explained the importance of having a vision
