  • Fiona Jones

    Fiona Jones was born in Gosford, New South Wales, in 1970. After completing her post-graduate degree in medical ultrasonography at Sydney University, Fiona spent 14 years in a very fulfilling and enjoyable career doing ultrasound examinations in obstetrics and gynaecology. She worked at specialist Obstetric practices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Fiona spoke regularly at conferences and was an invited speaker to medical students at Bond University on multiple occasions. During this time Fiona purchased multiple investment properties in Sydney and on the Gold Coast. She has completed numerous renovations and gained her certificate IV in real estate. One development involved project managing a block of five apartments with five separate owners in Mosman, Sydney. This led to a substantial increase in the propertys value. Her first renovation resulted in a 300% profit. After moving to the Gold Coast and seeing a gap in the market, Fiona and her sister opened a specialist waxing salon. After 15 months Fiona bought out her partner and went on to exponentially grow the business and after two years from conception sold it debt free for a phenomenal profit. This gave Fiona a taste for entrepreneurship. Fiona currently has three boutique property developments in the pipeline and trades covered calls in the share market for cash flow. Her skills have all been developed through attending seminars and reading a large volume of books on various strategies. Fiona is involved in volunteer work at a local organisation where she is currently the treasurer. Her work involves writing grants for the not for profit organisation. Through grant writing Fiona has developed an awareness of philanthropists and the amazing opportunities that they give to the community. This has led her to further her interest in successful people and take on her next project as author of the Millionaire series. Fiona lives on the Gold Coast in a waterfront property with her husband and two children. In her spare time she enjoys yoga, boating, swimming, reading and is currently learning to horse ride.

  • Phil Jones

    Phil Jones was born in Auckland in 1967 to a middle-class family. He and his brother tried various business ideas in an effort to improve the familys struggling financial position; some worked, some didnt, but through the process Phil learnt the value of investing, money, business and hard work. At 16, Phil left school to become an electrician. After falling through two ceilings, getting covered in grime and realising he wasnt achieving the financial results he wanted, he decided to move on to another challenge. He joined a struggling telecommunications company, which was losing $5,000 a month, and in the following years built a reputation as the companys corporate troubleshooter and change agent. Nine-and-a-half years later, his boss decided to sell the business and take a $13.5 million pay cheque. A stark reality set in: not only was he going to be out of a job, but for nearly ten years of his life he had been building wealth for someone else! He had nothing. It was in that moment that Phil made the decision to never be an employee ever again. He was determined to find a way to take control of his own financial future and become the author of his own destiny. Today Phil, with his wife Corinna, operates an international group of companies, including Richmastery, New Zealands largest real estate education business. They have featured in dozens of newspaper and magazine articles, as well as on television and radio. Phil has been involved in the negotiation of hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate purchases, is the author of six books, and is a highly-respected business and property public speaker.

  • Hans Jakobi

    Hi, my name is Hans Jakobi. If you have even a remote interest in becoming wealthy through real estate, you have probably heard my name, read my books or seen me interviewed on television. If not, let me refresh your memory. Over 150,000 people around the world have read my book “How To Be Rich & Happy On Your Income”. However, what really qualifies me to teach people how to achieve financial freedom through real estate, is the fact that I walk my talk! I’ve got more than 28 years of “in the trenches”, “hands” on experience in both residential and commercial real estate. My first real estate investment was a $40,000 warehouse in Lavinia Street, Athol Park (Adelaide) when I was in my first job. After three and a half years, I used this property to leverage into another warehouse which was under construction in Perth. Later on, I bought a warehouse in Melbourne . . .My first residential investment was a two bedroom unit in Allawah (Sydney) when I was 26 years of age. It cost $33,000 to buy at the time, and I still remember the struggles I had with the bank to get the finance. I was newly married and they would not take my wife’s income into account in assessing our ability to service the loan because she might get pregnant and not be able to work any more. My family still owns this unit today and it earns us $275 per week in rent. It is now worth close to $400,000! Thirteen months later, we bought a house because my wife did get pregnant. The people in the units above us, slammed the windows and cupboards closed in the middle of the night in anger when our little girl wouldn’t stop crying and we figured it was time to move. I’ve owned a studio apartment in a high rise building in Sydney, land, warehouses, houses, town houses and villas in NSW, SA, WA and Queensland and I’ve researched the real estate market in Canada, the USA and New Zealand. At the moment, I choose to invest mostly in NSW and Queensland. Because of the range of properties I’ve owned in various states over the years I know lots of the pitfalls and benefits of owning certain types of properties. All have their good points and all can have challenges if you don’t know how to manage them well. I know this from personal experience, - not because I learnt it at a seminar somewhere. Even though I’m not a developer, I’ve been closely involved in building and renovating several houses and factories. I’ve probably had a more diverse exposure to real estate both in Australia and overseas than many other property gurus around these days. I am Known As "Australia’s Wealth Coach®" Because I Teach Ordinary People - Like You and I - How To Take Control Of Their Finances and Create Wealth. What sets me apart from most other financial educators is that I do NOT have a vested interest in your investment decisions. In other words, I am independent and do not stand to profit from your investment choices. I am proud of my long-held reputation for independence and honesty. I don't sell real estate or shares. Therefore I don't stand to earn any commissions or kickbacks from what I teach. (There are many people claiming to provide investment education when in reality they are running seminars as a spruiking tool for their wares. Don't be fooled by these people!) My mission is to teach ordinary people how to take control of their finances and build wealth. I believe that YOU are the only person you should trust with your money and therefore I suggest that you should learn as much as possible about managing your money and making it grow. The idea is to make the transition from working for money to having your money working for you so that it supports the lifestyle of your choice. Some seminar presenters seek to impress you with claims of instant riches, expensive jewellery, clothes, mansions and flashy toys. Who knows if they actually own these things or whether they are on lease, rented or highly geared? These things are... Not a Real Measure Of True Wealth In My Book! While I do own a nice car or two, I don’t promote this and on most days I drive a 4WD farm ute (pick up truck) with genuine cow manure on it. (No Bull!) Since it’s a work vehicle, it’s even got a few dents and scratches on it. I drive a vehicle to suit my needs, not to impress. I would rather impress you with what I know and can teach you, than with a whole bunch of expensive toys. I’m more interested in substance than gloss, glitz and glamour. Apart from financial wealth, I measure true wealth in terms of relationships, health, happiness, your family and your spiritual connection. The time you have available to pursue the things you love to do also ranks highly for me. You see, most people think that financial independence is all about having lots of money. It’s not! It’s about time. My mission is: To Live and Teach the Principles of True Wealth. As such, in addition to addressing the matter of financial wealth I also cover areas such as values, attitudes, belief systems, health, balance, lifestyle and personal choice. I often use the quote: "Rich people are not rich because they have money. They have money because they are rich" I enjoy life on a 335 acre country estate with my family: I live here - west of Sydney, Australia - and travel the world teaching ordinary people just like you how to manage their money better and create real wealth. With my books I support people in need throughout the world to achieve a better life and to learn to help themselves. As an example, I have licensed an organisation in the Philippines to publish my books and the proceeds from these book sales go to support the Foundation for the Rotary Soup Kitchen, Food Bank and Training Centre, Inc. and the Mission for Special Children Foundation, Inc. based in Manila. I am happily married with three wonderful children. I believe in fun, success, personal happiness, making a difference in our world and discovering and living up to our true potential. Each of us has the seed of greatness within us. Each of us has an incredible power to choose the way we want to live our lives. On the formal side of things I have a degree in Economics and Accounting and am a chartered accountant by training. I have run several successful businesses and am an established property and shares investor.
