An accomplished investor who has taken it upon himself to educate others as well, Jon Giaan founded Knowledge Source, a company he continues to serve as managing director. With its status as the premier training and education company in Australia, Knowledge Source has earned its perch atop the industry due to its ability to provide access to a vast educational resource that also offers the assistance of a supportive network of experienced and accomplished property investors.
Mr. Giaan, a self-educated multimillionaire property investor, built a property investment portfolio from the ground up after diligently researching the subject on his own by attending seminars and reading as many books and articles as possible. Now worth over $35 million, the immense success of the property investment portfolio Mr. Giaan put together not only provided life-altering wealth but also inspired him to use the knowledge he had acquired to help others change their lives for the better through a highly effective approach to property investing.
In addition to founding Knowledge Source, Mr. Giaan also authored a book titled, “The Millionaire Phenomena.” Recognizing the opportunity to reach a wide audience, Mr. Giaan has continued to write articles on a wide range of subjects he believes are helpful to his readers as they work to achieve their personal financial goals through property investment strategies.
A study in the virtue of resilience, Mr. Giaan learned how essential it is to be able to learn from one’s own failures and misfortunes. Instead of despondence, Mr. Giaan reacted to his early failures by extracting valuable feedback from his missteps and returned with a renewed sense of vigor and determination to succeed. While it is certainly the case that the educational opportunities inherent in every success and every failure have served as a key component in Mr. Giaan’s lucrative investment career, the role of Knowledge Source is to ensure that aspiring investors begin their investment endeavors with all the information they need to avoid the challenges faced by Mr. Giaan as well as the other property investment experts that offer their support through Knowledge Source.
