Stephen has done various things over his life. Currently, he is the managing director at ProperT Network.
What inspired you to want to go into your current field? Was it always on your mind or did you ‘fall’ into the industry?
His passion in life is helping people. He worked on financial planning for 15 years. Realizing that there was a potential that he could dive deeper into that field, Stephen got interested in pursuing that for his career.
With the concept of money, there is a negative connotation with wealth, what is your opinion on that?
It took Stephen more than 50 years to understand that. He doesn’t understand why 80% of the population has such a bad relationship with money. Growing up, there was also a negative connotation but he wanted to step out of that bubble. Money can make a very positive impact on the lives of millions if used correctly.
How can students start to learn more about a different side of money, for example investments, real estate, ect?
The standard path of life; school, university and job, is very outdated in Stephen’s opinion. He believes that school should be preparing it’s students to have different revenue streams and ways of earning money because that is the way you can maximize your potential.
If you could leave the youth with one piece of advice, what would it be?
