We love sharing great tips on how you can best manage your finances. We have teamed up with a number of partners and financial service providers to connect you with the right solutions.
We had a great chat with Rebecca Mitchell from Awesome Lending Solutions, a financial service provider on our panel. Following she shares a bit about her story and some cool tips for you.
1. Tell us a little about yourself
I've been a broker for nearly 10 years but some people would call me somewhat of a veteran, as I have been in the industry for over 20 years. I work in a small brokerage called Awesome Lending Solutions which I started with my business partner and best friend Albert Waldron in 2014. We have one other broker and support staff. I thrive on finding the most appropriate solution for clients and even if I can’t help them straight away, I keep going till a solution can be found. I split my time between being a broker and looking after my Autistic brother, so life is never dull.
Rebecca's Specialties: Credit policies, Accounting, Asset Protection, Financial Planning, SMSF, Trusts, Home Loans, Commercial, Business Finance
2. How long have you been in the industry?
I have been in the industry longer than I would like to mention, I first ente
red the finance industry at 18 and I have just recently turned 42, so 24 years argh… Of those 24 years I have covered all aspects of the finance world starting in settlements, moving to credit, BDM roles and finally brokering in 2008.
3. What are your top 3 pieces of advice?
- Start small for your first purchase – you can always renovate or upgrade in the future – I wish I had done this with my first purchase
- If you are in a position stay at home with your folks for as long as possible and build your portfolio with investment properties.
- Save, save, save and save some more don’t go the instant satisfaction of buying something on a credit card – you won’t appreciate it as much as when you have saved for it.

Being nominated as Best Newcomer and Best Finance Broker in the Inaugural Better Business Awards
