Savvy Aussie Business Woman Achieves Record Price For Non-Fiction Book On Ebay And Donates It All To Charity
It took Dymphna just 18 months to retire on passive income from real estate and in recent years she has toured Australia constantly, showing thousands of clients how to do the same.
Whilst many businesses are saying tough economic conditions are making it hard to stay afloat, Dymphna and her team decided to show naysayers that with a little education under your belt, anything is possible. To demonstrate they launched an auction on ebay for her book Confessions of a Real Estate Millionaire and a full day one on one consult.
Inside just seven days, the auction received a huge number of bids, with the final bid fetching $19,102, a record pricefor a non-fiction book on ebay. Bidders from all four corners of the world participated in the online auction and the ultimate winner of the auction was an Australian citizen, living and working in Dubai.
After a divorce left her as a penny-less young solo mother with two children, Dymphna started her own accountancy practice but soon realised she was trading time for money. She turned to property investing to get the passive income she needed to spend more time with her kids and within 18 months, she went from $0 to 3.5 million worth of real estate.
Since then she has been involved in numerous other business enterprises including a national mortgage broking network, and being a director and major share holder of Alagrow Pty Ltd, a mining company with exploration and mining licenses on one of the largest and most pure zeolite ore bodies located in Australia.
“People think now’s a tough time to generate an income but people need to work smarter, not harder. In this current market, there are still plenty of business opportunities and you can make property do all the hard work for you,” says Dymphna.
All proceeds of the auction have been donated to Ozchild, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to enhance the opportunities and well being of children and young people especially those who are disadvantaged or at risk. OzChild run programs across a range of areas including foster care, family services, disability, education and legal services and is Australia's oldest independent, not-for-profit, children's charity, with a history of caring for children dating back to 1851.
