      A Surfer's Guide to Property Investing

      How to achieve your financial goals and lead your best life through investing in property

      by Paul Glossop

      A Surfer's Guide to Property Investing is about how to achieve your financial goals and lead your best life through investing in property. Paul Glossop believes the mark of financial success isn’t about getting bigger, better, faster or more. To him, success is freedom – freedom to spend more time with his family, or giving back to his community, or just more time to go surfing. Paul initially studied architecture before transferring his focus to education. He started working as a teacher in one of the roughest, toughest schools in the UK. A series of fortunate events brought him back to Sydney where over 10 years investing in property, Paul amassed a portfolio which has been focused on capital growth, development opportunities and cash flow. The success of his portfolio gave Paul the financial freedom to take a calculated risk to walk away from a successful corporate career and start something that he was truly passionate about: helping his family and others change their lives through investing in property.
