My life long interest has been in property and finance.
After leaving high school I worked in the banking industry for 10 years before moving into manufacturing.
The reason for choosing manufacturing was that it paid considerably more than I was earning in the bank which allowed me to achieve 3 goals:
1/ Purchase a home and repay the mortgage in full, in 5 years
2/ Purchase a portfolio of commercial investment properties
3/ Own a Glider (Sailplane)
After 13 years in manufacturing I started a mortgage brokering business which quickly grew to be one of the largest in New Zealand.
In July 2011, I sold my business and concentrated on writing a book called "Hammer That Mortgage". The book draws on my experiences in banking, mortgage brokering, investing and most importantly shows how I repaid a 25 year mortgage in full in just 5 years.
There are some excellent tips and tricks which I'm sure you will enjoy.
Hammer That Mortgage is packed full of tips and tricks for repaying your mortgage faster. It's easy to read with short punchy chapters that will leave you asking "why didn't someone tell me this years ago?".
