Carolyn Weston has always desperately wanted to invest in real estate. Growing up in a modest family, she didn’t believe that hard work would necessarily be enough to create wealth. In her marriage, she was constantly rebuked for wanting to invest. After separating, her low income, marital status, and two young children made it extremely difficult to get a loan. But that didn’t stop her.
Not only did Carolyn make some incredibly tough decisions in order to enter the investment market, she has stuck to the task for over 10 years to the point where she is now one of our coaches at Positive Real Estate. A single mum who couldn’t afford becoming a client of PRE to begin with, to now being one of our team and a mentor and coach to so many Australians who enjoy the riches of Carolyn’s experience.
