Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Advance to Go is ideal for that young person who has all the potential in the world and needs some inspiration, direction or a little push in the right way. Our most common readers also include property investors, real estate agents and the young at heart!
Q: What is the book about?
A: Little bit Aussie battler, little bit sassy entrepreneur – Kirsty’s story is truly honest, thoughtful, credible and inspiring. From the cover of BRW to Women’s Money magazine, Kirsty is being sought for comment on not only property issues but across a range of relevant and contemporary issues. This is more than a story about a young, successful business woman operating a real estate office in Launceston, Tasmania. “Anything is Possible” is a catch phrase that accurately describes this true story showing how a young girl can pull herself and her family out of a situation that almost destroyed them financially and emotionally. From absolutely nothing to owning over $3 million dollars worth of property in under four years, Kirsty’s story shows how it can be achieved.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: As a mid-teen my parents went from being my idols: having retired in their 30’s, owning successful businesses and being property investors, to divorce and bankruptcy. Advance to Go shows the first chapter in my life including how I went on from this to own my first two businesses at 15 and my own real estate agency at 21. In addition I’ve been honoured as Australia’s Youngest Ever National Young Business Woman.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: This book is my story – warts and all and there’s no other like it. If you enjoy getting to know the real story behind a business success – grab a copy.
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: These are some comments from others who’ve read the book:
Success leaves clues. Kirsty really does prove that if you’re good enough, you’re old enough. For an insight into one of Australia’s top young real estate and business minds I highly recommend you read Advance to Go – Collect $1 Million.
