Hello... Riding on the back of a successful winter season, my team and I have listed 60 million of properties for sale in the last two weeks alone. The market has really picked up and there is an air of confidence. It is certainly Spring Selling Season! Interstate buyers from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide visit in these warmer months and quiet often, they buy properties on the Gold Coast to enjoy all we have to offer. We are also experiencing an influx of Chinese buyers who are buying quickly to secure properties due to the Chinese Government restrictions. Sellers should take advantage of the beautiful weather and ensure that their homes are looking at their best and come to us to list them for sale. ADVERTISING ENQUIRIES Sam Kirkland m: 0498 503 970 e: email@example.com Ben Ryan m: 0432 545 955 e: firstname.lastname@example.org

MAN UP!! Have that MRI scan you need to have. WEEKEND WARRIOR OR PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE? NAGGED BY A SPORTS-RELATED INJURY, OR A LONG-STANDING, CHRONIC NIGGLE THAT STOPS YOU FROM PERFORMING AT YOUR BEST? IF SO, AN ACCURATE ASSESSMENT OF THE INJURY TO INFORM DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL FIRST STEP TO RECOVERY AND PEAK PERFORMANCE.
ccurate assessment requires the use of diagnostic technologies. Conventional medical imaging such as X-rays, Ultrasound, and Computed Tomography (CT) scans are frequently used to provide information about the precise location and extent of the injury. However, when more detailed information about the injury is required - including bone, joint and soft-tissue – Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the diagnostic technology of choice. MRI is the diagnostic technology of choice for sports-related injuries, because it allows our specialist musculo-skeletal physicians and radiologists to identify tears, and injuries to tendons, ligaments and muscles, as well as some fractures, which cannot be seen on conventional X-Rays. MRI is an excellent diagnostic tool, and can be used to assess all major joints including, the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, ankles and feet. Tears of the menisci (cartilage), ligaments and tendons (knee) or rotator cuff (shoulder) and the labrum (shoulder or hip) are well visualised using an MRI scan. MRI technology is also usually the best choice for the spine, when investigating back pain. Gold Coast Radiology (GCR) at Surfers Paradise, offers a comprehensive sports injury imaging service. GCR uses the strongest and most advanced clinical MRI system in the field, to provide superior quality, high-resolution images of all body parts; this is especially important for musculoskeletal and sports injury imaging. Image interpretation and reporting is completed by highly specialised musculoskeletal radiologists, with established expertise and experience looking after elite sportspeople and athletes. The MRI scanner used at GCR (Surfers Paradise) has been designed with patient comfort in mind. Use of advanced engineering and technology means greater flexibility and comfort for patients. Combine this with the only ‘in-room’ LCD television on the Gold Coast, where patients are able to watch TV during their MRI scans, and any concerns about claustrophobic feelings, as commonly associated with other MRI scanners, are all but gone. If you have been hesitating about that MRI scan you need, to get back to the top of your game, wait no longer! Contact one of our friendly staff at Gold Coast Radiology, Surfers Paradise.

CO R P O R AT E
MEMbERsHIPs AVA I L A b L E Membership at the Gold Coast’s ‘Number 1’ golf course and only Links layout is now open. Links Hope Island sets the standard as one of Australia’s finest resort courses with first class facilities and personal service, creating a sense of belonging. With flexible Membership options, there is a membership to suit golfers of all levels. And, you won’t have to pay a joining fee!
Contact the Membership Department for details and a Clubhouse tour 07 5530 9055 or email email@example.com Springfield Drive, Hope Island, QLD 4212 www.linkshopeisland.com.au
Links Hope Island, proudly stands the number one golf course on the Gold Coast. Located on the northern end of the Gold Coast, the Club is home to golfing luminary Peter Senior. Since opening almost 25 years ago, Links has remained a constant on the local and international golfing scene. Surprisingly, the Club is open to public every day and the team at Links are welcoming to locals wanting a Mediterranean escape right here on the Gold Coast. For avid golfers, Membership is now open and there are a variety of Membership styles to suit your golfing habits including a Mid-week membership and for those just starting out or who don’t have a lot of time but can’t do without their golfing fix, a new Twilight Membership has been released. Links General Manager, Tracey-Lea Tiley says, “The Twilight Membership captures the best of Links in what we call our golden hour when the course is at it’s most beautiful”.
Insiders Tip by
Club Professional, Evan Sinclair:
Just Like many of traditional Links courses Peter Thompson won his 5 British Opens on the secret to navigating the Hope Island Links is to stay out of our 128 pot style bunkers. These have been the downfall to many a golfers round as landing provides a chip out option only. Notably, Evan has scored a hole in one on par 3, the 17th. Evan tells us the strategy on how handle our signature hole. Usually the hole plays into the prevailing breeze so the best way to control ball flight is to take an extra club and position the ball back in your stance and keep it low.

About 19 Karen Gallery and the Director, Terri Lew After selling her successful tourist magazines, Terri Lew didn’t feel she was ready to retire. Her dream was to open an art gallery and discover new artists from all over the world, to give them a platform to showcase their talent and see them succeed in their chosen field. 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace is the materialisation of that dream and first opened its doors to the public in 2008. Nine years on and the gallery has grown considerably and cemented its position as one of the finest contemporary galleries in the country.
The gallery website is easily navigated and is updated on a daily basis, bringing you new artworks, news and information as it happens. The gallery is also available for private viewing after business hours by appointment. Terri chooses art that reflects her own personal taste. Her advice for buying art is simple. “Buy art that you love. If you can’t walk away from it or if you are still thinking about it, it means that you have already committed to it emotionally. This is what art does to you. Buy art that reflects your taste, your mood and your personality. There are no guarantees that an artist will become successful and give you a return on your investment but the joy you will receive from living with it, is worth every dollar your spend.” ~ Terri Lew
19 Karen was first established to promote and nurture emerging artists not yet represented by commercial galleries. Some of these artists have since become successful and sought after by art galleries and collectors alike. Terri is dedicated to continue discovering innovative emerging Australian and International artists with exceptional and diverse talent to shock and excite you. The gallery now represents 100 artists of various styles and genres –from Urban and Street art, to Pop art, Expressionism, Contemporary Figurative and Abstract to Realism, Surrealism and Pop Surrealism and anything in between – all enmeshed into one big white cube space in a converted warehouse – 380m2 the biggest art gallery on the Gold Coast, Australia! Adjacent to the gallery is an extensive stockroom for private viewing.

Clear connection 5 WAYS TO STOP FEELING ALONE AND CONNECT TO YOUR TRUE SELF
o you feel disconnected? Well if so, you are not alone! Many of us are experiencing a profound sense of disconnection from our true essence, our core desires, our higher self. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by Lifeline, 60% of Australians feel lonely. What’s really interesting is a large proportion of these respondents (over 80%) lived with other people. You might feel like thousands of others who are going through their daily routines, while something deep inside longs for more. Living with the sense that there is something more, that you were made for a purpose but having no idea what it is. The good news is, no matter how far you’ve strayed from your true self you can always return to your authentic core. Here are five easy and effective ways to regain your connection to your true self – no matter how busy, stressed or disconnected you feel.
Be brave, and do what it takes to fulfill your desires -right now!
FOCUS ON SELF LOVE Your assignment right now is to have compassion for yourself. To be kind to you. To love you. This is your birthright, your job, your purpose. Every time you choose to be compassionate, kind, and loving toward yourself, you are building trust in yourself and strengthening your connection to your true self.
TAKE A LOOK INSIDE In order to reconnect to your true essence you must look inside. Becoming aware of your inner world will quickly help you to get present within your body and your true self. In the moment you feel angry, sad, guilty, embarrassed, allow yourself to feel these emotions for just a few moments. Resist the urge to change them, simply notice how you feel in your body and allow yourself to sit with whatever shows up for you. This may be challenging and uncomfortable at first, but stick with it. Journal about what shows up for you. Giving your emotions permission to exist will help you to reconnect with your true hearts desires.
CREATE SPACE FOR THE NEW Sometimes our lives are so full, that we actually don’t have any space for a new perspective, insight or growth. Give yourself time off all your devices. Put your phone away, close your laptop, turn off the TV and give yourself some
REBECCA JACKSON IS AN EMPOWERMENT COACH AND FOUNDER OF HIGHER LOVE TODAY. SHE IS THE AUTHOR OF YOU’RE NOT ALONE: A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR THE AWAKENING SOUL. MORE AT www.rebeccajackson.info
space to reconnect with things that give you joy. You know that thing you’ve been telling yourself you want to do and haven’t got around to doing? Go do it! If you have always wanted to be a painter, go buy yourself some paint and a canvas or sign up for a local art class. Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument. You are worthy of having what you desire. Don’t wait one more second to live the life you want.
LET HAPPINESS IN When you give yourself permission to let happiness in, magic happens! Things begin to shift. Your energy instantly upgrades, and you start to notice the little things that make life so special. You hear the birds singing a beautiful melody and know that it’s a special gift just for you. You appreciate how good it feels to have the warm winter sun on your back. You feel the love and kindness of your lover again as he or she passes you a morning cup of coffee. Disconnection occurs when we don’t allow ourselves to be true to who we are in each moment. Give yourself permission to be the real you, and to see all the good and happiness that exists in your life. Happiness is not a destination. It is an inherent part of a rich, fulfilling, and authentic life.
ENGAGE IN MINDFUL MOMENTS Taking moments throughout your week to be present in your body will support you in feeling calmer, more balanced, grounded, and in the present. Physical activity is a great way to bring your attention back to your body. Try yoga, running, dance, swimming, boxing, whatever appeals to you. It’s extremely hard to feel disconnected to yourself when you muscles are screaming at you! If you’d prefer a more sedentary approach, try meditation, massage or read a book.

in spring,” Matt says. “New plantings, in particular will need at least some time to mature, and you’ll get a lot more value out them aesthetically if you don’t leave them to the last minute.” Matt adds: “When planning the types of improvements you’re going to make outdoors, it’s worth keeping in mind the key outdoor property features that most prospective buyers will look for – and you can then strategically prioritise your budget, time and resources. “Most homebuyers are going to want outdoor spaces and gardens that are relatively lowmaintenance, well-presented and cost-efficient.”
PRIORITISE CURB-SIDE APPEAL If you’ve got limited budget BE STRATEGIC “Starting in August or and want to prioritise a few September is optimal if you quick and key things, I’d always want to maximise your results recommend focusing on the

front garden or property entrance as this is where the first big impression on a prospective buyer is going to be made. It sets the tone for what’s to come and allows you as the vendor to get on the front foot. “One cost-effective but very impactful way to boost curb-side appeal is to incorporate verge planting into the front garden area,” says Matt. “You’ll need to get council approval first, but it’s often worth the effort because verge-planting almost always enhances the aesthetic of a front garden area, makes the property look larger and it’s much lower-maintenance and pleasing on the eye than grass,” Matt explains. “You might also consider giving your front garden a little boost by introducing some small hedges or adding a potted plant near the front door. “A hand sculptured pot in a neutral palette containing citrus, rosemary or lavender plants can also offer a really subtle and inviting aroma for potential buyers walking through the front door,” says Matt.
any outdoor space is completely remove weeds and keep all shrubs trimmed and tidy,” Matt says. “Cover all garden beds with mulch as this will bring uniformity into the garden and ensure that it looks cared for and loved. “It’s also important to trim back hedges, trees and foliage and remove any dead branches from the property,” Matt adds.
LIGHT IT UP “Many property viewings occur in evenings and afternoons, so it’s important to be able to show off key outdoor areas in their best light,” says Matt. “It’s often worth investing in some basic outdoor lighting if you don’t have it already.” “This doesn’t have to be too pricey and you don’t have to go overboard and purchase a lot of lights; a few mood and up-lights can be strategically placed to highlight the best facets of you outdoor spaces,” explains Matt.
LOVE THE LAWN “An overgrown or dead lawn screams high-maintenance to a potential buyer, so it’s really worth making sure that all of your lawns are trimmed, tidy and green for viewings,” says Matt. “You’ll also need to fertilise in the last month of winter to get it ready to go for spring,” Matt says.
MULCH AND TIDY “Similar to lawn maintenance, one of the most cost-effective and immediate things you can do to improve
PLANT FOR QUICK COLOUR “Before putting a property on the market, you’re going to want to make sure that the gardens look as lush and visually stimulating as possible,” Matt says. “This often means injecting additional colour into the garden – and there are plenty of quick and inexpensive ways to do this in time for a spring sale.” “You’re going to want to introduce plantings that will flower in time for spring – the likes of gardenias, jasmine plus some fast-growing plants like dichondra, convolvulus and Euphorbia ‘Diamond frost’,” says Matt. “Ornamental grasses and Helichrysum also grow very quickly and can easily fill and bring vibrancy to a space.” “For a safe and impactful option, you can pretty much always turn to a good-sized, wellplaced succulent. These come in
a variety of colours, shapes and textures and look great in just about any environment,” Matt explains. “Succulents also won’t require a lot of care from the vendor when they’re trying to sell, and most potential buyers won’t have any major problems with them,” says Matt. “They’re pretty inoffensive plants that people tend to like or have no real opinion on.”
POOL MAINTENANCE “For pool owners, the most immediate thing to worry about is the pool filtration system,” Matt says. “Make sure that the system is adequate and working properly and – if that’s okay – it’s about keeping the water’s pH level balanced and removing leaves and any visible algae.”
GURNEY HARD SURFACES “One of the quickest and simplest ways to improve the aesthetic of an outdoor spaces is to gurney hard surfaces to remove algae and mold so that they look fresh and new,” Matt says. “You’ll usually find algae and mold on south-facing or lowlight areas of the property – anywhere that doesn’t get a lot of sun or that has a lot of water running over it.”

FAMILY TIES WHY INVESTING IN PROPERTY CAN FAST TRACK YOUR CHILDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S FINANCIAL FUTURE.
s a parent, one of the greatest practical gifts you can give your children is empowering them to be successful through education about financial matters. Initially this should include building up savings and teaching them how compounding works. As they grow into young adults discuss the various ways they can get ahead in life, including the possibility of investing in property - either a home or an investment property, or both!
Investing in property is largely seen as a safe way to build wealth, but it is a longterm strategy. The younger you start, the more effective it is, thanks to leverage (borrowing from a bank) and the power of compounding (time). For example, if you acquire a property for $500K at age 20 and it grows by a conservative 5% per annum, it will pretty much double by the time you are 35 to $1 million. How many people have $500K of equity at this young age? And by age 50, it
will be worth 4 times what you paid for it at $2 million. If capital growth is 7%, then the property will double in value every 10 years, thus accelerating your equity build-up dramatically. If well researched, and with the right advice, a property can be cash flow neutral or positive in the current market, and may become slightly cash flow negative if interest goes up far enough but, overall, should remain quite manageable.
If you acquire several properties over time, imagine the amount of equity you can build up by the time you retire! The difficulty is the starting point, as young people rarely have enough deposit for a first property. As a parent there are many ways you can help your children kick-start their wealth creation through property.
USE YOUR SAVINGS TO HELP WITH THE DEPOSIT If you are lucky enough to have sufficient savings, you could offer to donate the value of the deposit. Most people rationalise this gift as being “an advance on inheritance”. It’s fine, if you can afford to do it, although there is an argument that you are spoiling your child and not teaching him/her the value of money.
CO-INVEST WITH YOUR CHILD This is a controversial one. It will certainly help your child get on the property ladder, but if you co-invest you are then “jointly and severally liable” for the debt, meaning that if your child does not repay the loan, you will have to.
CREATE YOUR OWN PORTFOLIO OF Here are a few: PROPERTIES OFFER TO BE This is about building WHICHEVER WAY YOU A SECURITY up wealth yourself CHOSE TO HELP YOUR GUARANTOR FOR with a view to OFFSPRING, IT IS WISE THE DEPOSIT eventually helping TO KEEP SOME FORM You can be a guarantor your children.
