Corporate life to property developer
I have the pleasure of speaking with Amanda McEwen today, who, out of a desire to spend more time with her three children, transitioned out of her corporate job to become a small-scale property developer. In less than 8 years, she has created over $33 million dollars worth of property, built over 66 homes and generated a six figure profit each year. Now she teaches other Aussies the art of small scale property development.
Amanda’s story serves as an incredible inspiration for anyone seeking to take control of their financial future and create a life of freedom and abundance through property development. In this episode, Amanda shares her journey into property development, realising that the traditional property investment strategy wasn’t actually enabling more freedom, but rather creating more debt and tying her to her job. This realisation is what prompted her to seek alternative solutions and explore the world of property development.
We talk about Amanda's first small scale development project and how this experience taught her the importance of keeping an open mind and having multiple exit strategies for each project.
As a female property developer, Amanda acknowledges that the industry can sometimes be perceived as a boys' club. But, she doesn’t let that slow her down. We talk about the importance of building a strong network and how she has surrounded herself with a team of knowledgeable professionals, including a finance broker to secure funding and real estate agent to understand market demands and facilitate sales.
With property development having such a profound impact on her life, Amanda also mentors others to help them achieve financial freedom through property development. She shares an inspiring story of one of her students who had no prior experience in the industry and paid off her mortgage with Amanda’s guidance. This is just one of many examples of people paving their own way into financial freedom.
I love Amanda’s passion for empowering other women and men to pursue their dreams of property development. Make sure you check out the amazing resources on her website!
