Introducing McCarthy Group
Sixteen years in and we are just getting started.
I’m just the guy next door, with a long held dream to become financially independent. Years ago I was fortunate enough to have a mentor who showed me the simplicity and power of property as a tool for wealth creation. Along the way my dream became my passion, and then my career and business.
In the beginning I harboured doubts about my ability to become an investor. I focused too much on what could go wrong, and I didn’t trust myself despite seeing first hand my mentor’s successes. This is how I know firsthand how difficult it is to start, and I certainly understand the concerns or fears that any investor has.
Isn’t it true that if we don’t face our fears, we are only half living our lives? What is our true potential? We will never know until we try. Little did I realise that in overcoming my fear of failure that my own experiences would pave the way for others. For many investing in property, it’s a step into the unknown, and like any worthwhile endeavour you may need a helping hand.
One of my very first decisions was to give a name to this company. After much reflection I put my family name on the door as a statement that I’d stake my reputation on our trustworthiness and integrity.
I’ve learnt a lot from my years as a property investor. They have presented me with the opportunity to learn, develop techniques, and add more expertise, helping to build my team and streamline our methods that we now share with you today.
