Are you thinking about building a property portfolio but not sure where to start?  Getting the foundation right is pivotal and can be achieved through a streamlined process developed by Max Phelps, author of ‘Getting your money $hit together’.

Max draws from his extensive experience in finance, building his own international property portfolio and many years advising clients on how to build their portfolios.

Using the Five-2 Money Diet as a starting point, Max focuses on helping people to stop worrying about money, retire young and enjoy their life along the way.

“Most people don’t realise that achieving their financial goals is not about getting the next promotion or salary increase. 

It’s more important to get clarity and control over your finances, as well as enjoying life”, said Max.

In the book, Max covers off his Five Ps for financial freedom :

  • prepare for a first home by being awesome at saving, while enjoying guilt-free spending
  • plan to buy strategically for a lifetime of changing property needs and leapfrog your peers
  • purchase a first and second home confidently, despite how scary and exciting it can be
  • build a property portfolio like a pro, while managing risk
  • pay down debt, retire young and give back to help others.
