Having grown up on a farm, I learnt that to be successful there are three important things you need to be. Firstly, entrepreneurial, secondly focussed and finally, hard working.
My parents had a huge influence on my life, especially my Dad, who always told me, to use my brain rather than my back to make a living. Whilst he loved farming, he encouraged me to study hard, so I didn’t end up becoming a farmer.
Straight after leaving school in 1986, while waiting for Uni to begin, I joined a Bank and quickly realised how much I enjoyed the finance industry. I therefore decided not to go to Uni, where I was intending to become a PE Teacher, and continued on working in the Bank.
In 1989, I transferred to Sydney whilst still working in the Bank to pursue a career in Rugby League. 10 years later, I left the Bank to commence Ryan Home Loans which, from a career prospective, was the best decision I have ever made.
In 2010, I commenced RHL Real Estate to compliment the work I was doing at Ryan Home Loans.
To this day, I thoroughly enjoy helping people reduce their debt and grow their wealth through property investment.
