CREATOR OF I LOVE REAL ESTATE
Dymphna Boholt built her multi-million dollar property portfolio starting virtually from scratch. Newly divorced and pregnant with her second child, she had little other than a burning desire to be financially free. Dymphna now controls a multi-million dollar international property portfolio and enjoys a lifestyle that most other people just dream about.
Born in a small central Queensland town, Dymphna began her working life as a jillaroo. At the age of four, she invested in a cow which she bred to create her first asset portfolio – a herd. Dymphna sold her cattle to pay her way through the University at the Australian National University in Canberra from where she graduated with a degree in Accounting and Economics.
On graduation, with fifteen job offers to choose from, she decided to move to Sydney and work with the prestigious Coopers & Lybrand (one of the world’s biggest accountancy firms). She was subsequently head hunted to be financial controller for a number of companies in a variety of industries including a liquor distribution company, several mining industry companies, a stock broking firm and in the finance industry.
In 1994, she found herself ‘starting over’ after a divorce left her on her own with very little money, a young child to support and another one on the way. To get back on her feet, she moved to the Sunshine Coast and started her own accountancy practice, Active Financial Answers, which she has since sold.
Keen to escape the constraints of a solo mum with a full-time job, she decided to try her hand at real estate investment. She focused on properties that brought in more than they cost. Within just 18 months, she’d accumulated a $3.5 million property portfolio boasting approximately $1.55 million in equity and had totally replaced the income she had been earning as an accountant working 40 to 60 hours a week.
Since that time, her property portfolio has expanded into a multi-million dollar international property portfolio. Dymphna is in great demand nationally and internationally as a speaker on a multitude of topics, most of which fall under the headings of personal finance, business, taxation, asset protection, property investing or motivation and inspiration. She is regularly called on by the media for interviews or to contribute articles.
She is the author of six books specifically aimed at helping others succeed as estate investors including – Confessions of a Real Estate Millionaire, Tax Secrets of a Real Estate Millionaire, Asset Protection Secrets of a Real Estate Millionaire and 101 TopTen Tips for Real Estate Success.
Dymphna is also responsible for some of the best-selling training and coaching curriculums for rookie investors who want to immerse themselves and learn from some of the most successful mentors and coaches in the field.
Another of Dymphna’s innovations is the I Love Real Estate network, a community of like-minded investors who get together to help each other grow and achieve greater success.
The now happily remarried mother of three lives on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in what she describes as her “fifty-four acre piece of paradise”, completely surrounded by rainforest with its lush vegetation, babbling creeks and abundant wildlife. “My passion is to help people make money through real estate, but really when you break it down, it’s about helping people achieve financial freedom.”
"My passion is to help people make money through real estate, but really when you break it down, it’s about helping people achieve financial freedom."
Dymphna is the author of the best-selling book, ‘Confessions of a Real Estate Millionaire’ as well as five other real estate specific books.
I LOVE REAL ESTATE CO-FOUNDER
Jon Giaan is a self-confessed dreamer, an advocate of financial freedom, a passionate wealth seeker and a mad multi-millionaire property investor with an unquenchable thirst for self-education and knowledge. And not just any type of knowledge, but knowledge that empowers and adds value to areas of your life that are crying out for improvement. With that as his inspiration, he foundered Knowledge Source.
Now Australia’s number one education and training company, Knowledge Source brings together the best, most adept and sought-after educators in the area of property investing and self-improvement. The secret of success lies in surrounding yourself with successful people and in practicing the wise words of mentors who have blazed a trail before you.
Giaan’s own success as an investor and wealth creator came late in life. Aged thirty-six with three kids all less than three years old, no clear career path and no formal education, he realised he’d have to work fast if he wanted to start making enough money to support his young family and achieve his life-long dream of financial freedom.
“I attended every seminar out there at the time – property, shares, business, personal growth, etc. etc. I fell in love with the idea of self-education, and I quickly realised that even though I didn’t have a formal education and I’d failed my HSC, I could still achieve success.
With great determination, drive and application I started at the bottom and built a vision of what I wanted my life to look like. I remember doing a lot of personal development at the time involving vision boards and goal setting workshops. I realised that the first thing I needed to work on was my mindset and then focus on tactics and strategy.
Despite my thirst and commitment, success was elusive. I failed a lot in the early days. I tried futures trading with a small account and lost the lot within six months. I bought a property and the value stayed the same for years. I tried my hand at various businesses without success. However, one of the key things I learned from all the seminars I attended was that its ok to fail and that failing is a form of feedback that tells you what you did wrong and what needs fixing. I used that feedback to refine my strategies and reset my goals.
My game plan was first to master the area of business, make money there and use the profits to build a property portfolio. Diving even deeper into self-education, into every aspect of business, I stumbled upon the concept of direct response marketing and soon became an expert. With this skill, I rapidly became the go-to person in the area of lead generation and conversion. From there, I eventually built my own businesses in business coaching & consulting and publishing. That success enabled me to start and grow an investment property portfolio that today is valued at more than $35 million and growing.
Following my initial success, I was keen to set up a training and event business that would coach, support and motivate people to achieve their goals through self-education. Today, Knowledge Source is that business. One of my mentors said it best… "Formal education will get you a job, self-education will make you rich…”
My passion is to help people make money through real estate, but really when you break it down, it’s about helping people achieve financial freedom.
