How Jan Somers Built Her Empire From The Ground Up by Thinking Big & Starting Small

We’re chatting with Jan Somers, a woman and mother at the helm of a multimillion dollar empire and author of a series of award-winning books on property. Like renovating a house from the ground up, Somers will share her story and show you how you can manage your money by thinking big, but starting small!

The founder of Somersoft will discuss how she fell into property investing after a long career of teaching high school students, how she manages a plethora of projects at once and how she juggles all of this while dabbling in renovation and spending time with her family.

It doesn't mean that you have to go without buying investment property. It just means that you have to be very careful in manging your money and to not extravagant. - Jan Somers
