A former research scientist who has gained national recognition building an imposing investment portfolio over the past decade believes people look in all the wrong places for financial freedom.
Xenia Ioannou says setbacks such as the Global Financial Crisis and a natural skepticism about making money without working in the traditional sector means many people never explore all their financial possibilities. Instead of making their money work for them, she says, people work to make money without actually using it properly.
Ioannou says there is great scope both in the share market and property market for investors to generate a strong and reliable income but it requires knowledge too many are not prepared to gain.
“People dream about financial freedom but when they get the chance to achieve it, too many don’t have the courage to step out of their comfort zone,” she says. “If they did step out of it, they’d realise there was enormous earning potential they’ve never known before.
“The only thing that stops people from achieving financial freedom is not knowing how to.”
As principal of Wealth Zone Education, Ioannou is next month conducting an information evening to give would-be investors the opportunity to take control of their financial situation. The event will feature renowned investment adviser and Global Wealth Mentor George Fokas, who will speak on dealing with the stock market in any climate and creating financial freedom through renting out shares.
“About 10 years ago, when I started investing and building a portfolio, I had to fly interstate and overseas to gather information,” she says. “I’d have loved to have been able to just go to a local information evening and get started but credible financial speakers rarely came to Adelaide back then. The information being offered at this evening is priceless for anyone who genuinely wants to take control of their financial future.”
The Wealth Zone Education information evening will be held at the Adelaide Royal Coach, 24 Dequetteville Terrace, Kent Town, at 6.30pm on Thursday, February 10. Interested persons can register online at www.thewealthzone.com.au or contact Xenia Ioannou on 0412 437 582.
