On this week’s episode, I interview Jackson Millan, Co-Founder of Aureus Financial and the Wealth Mentor. He’s one of the passionate and outspoken speakers on the topic of wealth creation. He discovered very early on in his career that the traditional financial planner path wasn’t for him.

He started his career very similarly to the Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort, and created a coaching business for business owners to teach them how to get the foundations right to build wealth with ease.

He shares his own journey, pains and struggles he’s had to overcome to create financial success for himself. He now shares with business owners to help them on their journey to wealth creation.

  • Didn’t come from a family full of money
  • At an early age, he identified very acute memories about the absence of money
  • Looking back, there were a lot of instances where entrepreneurship and his ‘destiny’ towards money
  • When he was three years old, he went to his mum’s friend’s house who had two young daughters. Both playing in the front yard, he had the urge to round up his toys and walk door to door and selling his belongings
  • He could see the opportunity to exchange his belongings and currency
  • His primary passion was helping animals and wanted to be a vet
  • But it got to a point where he had a career counsellor who told him that he wasn’t applying himself in school. As a result, what he thought was going to be his future was suddenly no longer the case
  • He asked his Dad for advice but his Dad was great for giving advice but terrible for doing what he says
  • Jackson decided to get a traineeship and become a financial advisor
  • He recognised that in his teenage years and break the cycle of seeing his parents being hard workers but not achieving financial freedom. He thought becoming a financial advisor was the solution for that, but it definitely wasn’t
  • He worked for a financial advisory company called the Financial Advice Centre with about 300 – 400 reps in a hardcore sales rep environment
  • It was a predatory, toxic environment
  • What his perception of financial advice vs the reality was a stark contrast
  • He noticed that the business was doing things that was opposite to what they were telling people to do and none of their clients were any closer to reaching financial freedom
  • He realised that it wasn’t for him and he kept searching for a fit based on his perception of financial advice and couldn’t find anything
  • So he took it upon himself to develop his own Values Based Model to provide the financial advice he believes should be right. He’s been doing it for 14 years now
