But after two years they had lost their sparkle. They had become “puppets”, in Shona’s words, and very unhappy. So DJ secretly enrolled them in one of Dymphna’s courses. The first Shona heard of it was when someone called to check their credit card details.
But they took the opportunity for what it was and threw themselves into Dymphna’s “university”. For three and a half weeks, Des and Shona immersed themselves full-time in the materials, the CDs and DVDs, rewinding and going over sections to make sure they hadn’t missed anything.
The Cannons had left Victoria with no retirement plan and just $110,000 in savings. Within 18 months of joining the Ultimate program, they had built a million dollar portfolio that delivers $100,000 a year in passive income.
With their own futures provided for, the Cannons have turned their attention towards making a real difference in the remote communities they call home. They’ve even given up the rent on one of their properties so it can be used as a church and training centre.
Having started the whole ball rolling, their son, DJ, is now also in on the game, with two properties (at a total monthly mortgage bill of just $291 a month) to his name and on the hunt for a third.
