Some of our favourite quotes from the show:

“Obviously, during COVID, regional Australia shot up. Property values grew. That was partly because people moved there. But I think one of the things people missed was also people not moving out of regional Australia.” – Michael Yardney

“I think I was lucky. I've learned not to try and time the market but just manage my cash flows.” –Michael Yardney

“So, if you're a pessimist, you're literally sabotaging your life. You're pushing the very people you need away, and you're left with no choice but to rely on yourself.” – Michael Yardney
