Rhonda Madden on maintaining a healthy work-life balance...
"My business is virtual so I'm lucky I have a home-based business. I balance my business fairly well; if I want a day off I can plan to have a day off.
I have other companies that I work with from time to time so if I get extremely busy or I need a day off they'll take a Friday out and sell property for me.
One of the opportunities is offering people international opportunities for a property investment from the company I deal with in Spain.
The people that I deal with overseas are fantastic I was one of the first in Australia to contact them, out of the whole of Australia would you believe

On the endless demands of running the business...
"I have some pretty good resources available to me. I have a virtual secretary who doesn't even live in my state but it works extremely well. I don't know how we'd survive without the internet."
On harnessing the power of the internet...
"It's just something I really took to and I really understand websites. But finding a decent IT person who can develop a website is not easy.
"Listing properties, organising webinars, talking to developers, sourcing property that's going to be suitable for our investors... Believe me it's always a big day, there's always plenty to do."
