Entrepreneurial from a young age, Jodi bought her first investment property at the age of 19, and built up a portfolio of six investment properties by the time she was 25. Jodi’s self-taught property and investment expertise led to a career as a mortgage adviser in Auckland and, later, London. Having garnered recognition for her knowledge in the industry, she became a sought-after speaker at seminars, teaching people how to be successful in property investment. In 2008, Jodi published Young & Singles Guide to Property Investment, a book for first-time buyers that gained attention across New Zealand.
As Jodi’s career progressed, so too did her focus on business. She completed an MBA in 2013, specialising in sustainable customer experience strategies. In addition, she undertook study in applied cognitive neuroscience in the field of leadership. Jodi applied her understanding of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology in real-world scenarios, delivering outstanding results. The tools and frameworks used throughout her leadership career ultimately became The Pocket MBA - her new book in bookstores across the globe.
Now living in Australia, she has established a high-performing business within the world’s largest aesthetics franchise network, Laser Clinics Australia. Jodi's business has won multiple awards including Franchisee of the Year in 2021, Clinic Manager of the Year in 2022 and her business was a finalist in not one, but five categories at the Tweed Business Awards in 2023!
