Hi {:firstName},

Have you heard the story of 'The Crow and the Pitcher'? It's a classic from the book Aesops Fables and the story goes like this...

In a spell of dry weather, when the birds could find very little to drink, a thirsty crow found a pitcher with water in it.

But alas, the pitcher was high with a thin narrow neck, and no matter how hard the crow tried, he simply couldn't reach the water.

He tried, and he tried, and just when it looked like he would need to give up in despair, he had an idea – he was going to use the pebbles on the ground.

So, one by one, he carefully took the pebbles and dropped them into the pitcher. With each pebble, the water rose a little higher and higher again until it was within his reach.

At last! The water was near enough so he could finally take a drink. And drink he did.

This story reminds me of the journey many people take towards financial freedom. Many try to pursue a life of abundance and often give up hope because they lose the desire or persistence to succeed, or because they don't think outside the box. In fact, most opt to fly away and never return.

Now think about this. Imagine you're the crow, the pitcher is the property market and the water is your financial freedom. What would you do to get your drink?

You see for me, the pebbles represent the different opportunities (or strategies) you can take advantage of to get closer to your financial freedom.

Each pebble you drop inside the pitcher becomes your investment and serves to strengthen your commitment to achieve a life of financial abundance.

Plato perfectly summed the moral of the above story when he said, 'necessity is the mother of invention.'

But remember, you don't have to be an inventor to make an 'invention'.

In fact, I know of an 'invention' that offers you the opportunity to gather your own 'pebbles' without having to spend a dime.

It's the 'Buying Distressed Property + Asset Protection' property education event, and its free.

This complimentary full day training event is being presented by property entrepreneur and legal expert Dominique Grubisa, and she'll be revealing to you her little-known strategies for helping regular people make instant capital gains by buying property at a discount.

But you must be quick. As in right now. This dedicated 5-city national tour of Live events kicks off in less than a week and there's only a handful of seats remaining.

Claim a complimentary seat for you and a friend by clicking here.

Now is the time to finally start collecting your 'pebbles to success'.

Get educated now!

3 Core Beliefs To Financial Abundance

A friend once said to me, 'everything that can be invented has already been invented'. It made me laugh because in my opinion, we've not even scratched the surface of what's possible. Here's my 2nd of 3 core beliefs to financial abundance.

What Reno TV Shows Aren't Telling You

Have you ever thought that reno's seem so much easier on TV shows than in 'reality'? I've found that in some cases, the costings they've used can be really underquoted and that makes it hard for everyday renovators to estimate their budgets.

Marketing Your Development Project

The process of 'marketing' a development project should start as soon as contracts are exchanged – not when works are nearly completed. So what are the essential steps you should be thinking about? Do you aim to pre-sell? Who should you target?

The Rise Of Distressed Properties

Economists refer to it as 'Pig in the Python'. The banks call it 'Distressed Properties'. Dominique Grubisa calls it 'Opportunity'. Latest news suggests distressed sales and delinquent residential mortgage debt are on the rise. Dominique explains why.

Winners, Losers and House Prices

How can house prices be good and bad at the same time? John reports from the outskirts of Brisbane where he's been researching the local market and asks what drives house prices and what impact does new housing developments have on pricing?


Michael from Sydney attended the Ultimate Property Conference and was amazed at the quality of experts, content and work that had gone into putting together such an incredible event.

Ben from Port Macquarie came to the Ultimate Property Conference thinking "here we go again", but walked away feeling inspired and ready to put into action lessons from the weekend.

Danielle from NSW shared this beautiful post on Facebook after attending my Ultimate Property Conference event last month. It's another reminder that whilst I think we do good, meaningful work, none of what we do would be possible without the support of our amazing clients, community and attendees who are so open to the education we offer.

'Aesops Fables' by G.K. Chesterton

Aesops Fables is a collection of tales from the Greek storyteller Aesop, who is believed to have lived in ancient Greece as a slave.

Aesop was known to be a keen observer of both animals and people with most of his characters in his stories being animals, some of which take on human characteristic and are personified in ways of speech and emotions.

However, the majority of his characters retain their animalistic qualities; tortoises are slow, hares are quick, etc. Aesop uses these qualities and natural tendencies of animals to focus on human traits and wisdom.

Each fable has an accompanying moral to be learned from the tale.
