According to Veda (now Equifax), one in three Australians have bad credit. Just one default on your credit report, or some missed repayments can mean having to fork out thousands more in home loan interest rates and upfront application fees. It is of utmost importance when starting your wealth creation journey that you not only understand your credit report, but that you know how to protect it or fix it if it’s not looking good. Knowing this could be the difference between you and your family creating wealth or being stuck in the rental market for years to come.

Learn about:

  • Learn what is your credit report and score
  • Learn how to improve or fix your credit report and score
  • Get on track with better finance options

How to accelerate your wealth through property

Date & Time: 12pm (60mins) Thursday 17th March 2022
Location: Live Webinar

Presenter: Emma Allen – Director of Active Property Investing (scroll for bio)

Women are creating wealth in many facets of life that are not necessarily measurable in dollars. We are living longer and accumulating substantially less superannuation so it’s no surprise that we are taking money matters into our own hands.

‘Financial literacy’ increases your awareness and empowers you to make smart decisions. It’s about being resourceful with what you have, so you can influence what you want your future to look like.

The journey of a property investor is therefore, not one big leap of faith. It’s a thought process encompassing many small steps and decisions to achieve an optimal outcome and accelerate your wealth creation. The key is that you get started because time in the market is more powerful that trying to guess the market. This session is the beginning of that conversation.

Learn about:

  • How to get your foot in the property market
  • The 3-things you need to start investing
  • Key questions to ask when selecting a property
