“This is a break through book for the Defence Force property investor” (Joe Passione; leading builder, developer, and director of Prime Projects Construction). When I pop across the road for a surf just because the conditions are good, I still pinch myself! How did I get here? Every day of my life is now full of choices because I was a young navy recruit encouraged to invest early. Rather than just nod and smile, I made choices that got me here today. I took the plunge and did it. I kept it simple and stayed on the path, learning all the way. I’m still learning. I’m determined to give you the best possible start in your early career life by passing on what I’ve learned and giving you a framework to propel you forward. With the merest hint of determination, clearly defined goals, awareness of your current state, and belief blended with faith, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. As we work through this SOP together, I want to explore the why behind your desire to invest. I know that it isn’t motivated by money. It is always far more purposeful than money. In this Property Investment SOP, I’ll share a little bit about me and my property investment path. I’ll take you through a step-by-step process to make a better financial life for you and your future. What I am all about is seeing young Defence Force personnel get off to a great start in their working life. I understand the nomadic life that Defence is and the opportunities a secure Defence role opens up for growing wealth. By serving in the military, you are standing on a mountain of potential that you can tap into. While the military is dedicated to taking care of you now, what happens once you walk off the gangway for the last time? Imagine leaving the Defence Force with a whole range of choices open to you because you set yourself up early in your career. You need to be saving at least 10 percent or more of what you earn to invest in your future. If you don’t, you could be one of many Australians that outlive your super and be in real risk of poverty in old age. By following some simple steps outlined in this book, you will empower yourself to be in the top 5% Australians who retire above the median wage. Dream big! I’ll help you work toward living your ideal life. “My vision is that, one day, the investment and goal-setting principles covered in this SOP will be taught as part of Defence Force training and embedded before that, in the Australian school curriculum” (Marcus Westnedge, Capital Properties).
