  • Dymphna Boholt

    From a farm in Central Queensland to downtown Bangkok, Canberra University to a career as an accountant and economist; to being one of Australias most successful property investors, and leading real estate strategist and educator specialising in tax, asset protection and international investment, its no wonder Dymphna Boholt is known by many professional and personal friends as Dymphna the Dynamo! Born in a small central Queensland town, Dymphna began her working life as a jillaroo. Her first investment was a cow at the age of 4, which she used to breed with other cattle in the area to create her first asset portfolio - a herd. Dymphna sold her herd to pay for her university degree in Accounting and Economics, and graduated from the Australian National University in Canberra. Upon graduation, she had fifteen job offers and chose to move to Sydney and work with the prestigious Coopers & Lybrand (one of the big eight at that time in accountancy firms worldwide). She also did stints as a financial controller in the liquor, mining, and the stock-broking and finance industries. In 1994, she found herself 'starting over' after a divorce left her with very little money, pregnant and a toddler to support on her own. To get back on her feet, she moved to the Sunshine Coast and started her own accountancy practice, Active Financial Answers. Today Active Financial Answers is a thriving business based in Maroochydore and has since expanded to have offices in Melbourne and Sydney. Although Dymphna no longer practices as an accountant, she maintains her position as a managing partner for the company which boasts over 3000 clients Australia wide and a staff of 23. In the year 2000, Dymphna met U.S. property guru and real estate adviser to Robert Kiyosaki, Dr Dolf de Roos. Listening to him on stage, Dymphna realised she was doing exactly what he was warning against - 'trading time for money. Keen to move away from the constraints of being a solo mum who was working full time, she decided to try her hand at real estate investment. She focused on properties that brought in more than they cost her. Within just one year she had accumulated a $3.5 million property portfolio, boasting $1.55 million in equity and totally replacing the income she was earning as an accountant working 40 to 60 hours per week. Through just one property purchase, she managed to generate a passive income greater than the average Australian wage. Since that time, she has become firm friends with Dr de Roos. Her property portfolio has expanded considerably to become a multi-million dollar international property portfolio. This led her to be featured in a book in 2005, alongside the most successful property investors in the country titled Secrets of Property Millionaires Exposed. She is also a director and major share holder of Alagrow Pty Ltd, a mining company based on the Sunshine Coast with exploration and mining licenses on one of the largest and most pure zeolite ore bodies located in Australia, and potentially the world. The tested, proven reserves are in excess of 3,500,000 tonne with estimated reserves as high as 17,500,000 tonne. With an average profit margin on mining and selling zeolite at approximately $100 per tonne the potential profitability of the mine is in excess of one billion dollars. Alagrow Pty Ltd is currently conducting extensive research and development in the area of toxic and radioactive waste clean-up and prevention. The zeolite from the Alagrow ore body has recently been tested in Bulgaria for application as an environmental barrier and has been found to be the only known naturally forming ore body capable of this application. Dymphna is also the co-founder and co-director of a highly successful national mentoring program based on the Sunshine Coast called; organises events of her own, and sells educational products around the world ranging from free and low cost articles, reports and audios through to comprehensive home-study packages on a range of topics. She has also recently co-launched a new national franchise network of finance strategists called Investors Edge Finance who can source finance, but more importantly can assist investors through ongoing education and support working with clients to achieve their financial and wealth goals. Investors Edge Finance currently has franchised offices in Victoria and Queensland with a team of 17, and is growing rapidly with negotiations for further franchisees in most other states. Dymphna is also in great demand nationally and internationally as a speaker on a multitude of topics most of which fall under personal finance, business, taxation, asset protection, property investing or motivation/inspiration. She is regularly called on by the media for interviews or to contribute articles

  • Patrick Bright

    The 7 most important things you should know about Patrick Bright: 1. In 1996, working 90 hours a week and down to his last few bucks, Patrick knew he to do something fast to fix his business. He attended a business improvement workshop and got a business coach. Several months later he turned the business around to be an extremely profitable one, and learnt to work on the business rather than in it. 2. Patrick went on to run several businesses - some were started from scratch, others were purchased, built up then sold off. A number of business owners offered Patrick profit share and equity in exchange for his no-nonsense, profit-generating marketing ideas and advice. 3. He has over 14 years of practical experience in sales, marketing and business development and is highly sought after for his knowledge of business and all of its operations. He is often called upon as a motivational, team-building and keynote speaker. 4. First and foremost Patrick is an investor. All investors need cash flow and Patrick uses his businesses to create it. He invests in property because he discovered in his early 20s it's the smartest and safest wealth creation vehicle. He became so skilled in buying property that dozens of his friends and family began asking him to do it for them. That's how his real estate buyer's agency was born. 5. Patrick says, "It's the practical experience that gets you the results, not theory in the class room." He still regularly attends business and marketing training programs around the world to continually sharpen his skills and knowledge. 6. Patrick currently owns several businesses, most of which he only works on - not in. He has a passion for life and assisting others to achieve their dreams. He still works with a small number of business clients as he just loves the stimulation from being "hands-on", helping business owners achieve results, and the many lessons he derives from the work.7. Patrick values his local community and has given over 10 years volunteer service to the SES (State Emergency Service). He is a J.P. (Justice of the Peace), was Vice President of his local Chamber of Commerce for four years and is a strong supporter of children's charities.
