About the Author
Joseph Chou is one of Australia’s leading property investors, having created a multi-million dollar lifestyle for himself from starting with nothing at the age of 29. He came to Australia in 1991 with just $4000 in his pocket and a desire to create a new life for himself. Born in Beijing in 1962, he studied at the prestigious Peking University and then in the US, enjoyed the role of diplomat in his homeland, only to lose the title and prestige by migrating to Australia. He first delivered pizzas for $7 an hour, then underwent door-to-door sales, insurance, and finally property investment, each time elevating his position, personal wealth and reputation as a determined, brilliant businessman. Today he teaches and speaks to thousands about property investment and business principles and is the CEO and founder of a leading property investment company, Ironfish, with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Shanghai (China).
He has a firm belief that anyone can make it in the property industry as long as they do one simple thing: play by the rules.
