About the School Of Renovating
Welcome to The School Of Renovating- a community that helps aspiring renovators create an income and a life they love through renovating & property.
My name is Bernadette Janson and I am living my dream life.
I indulge my addiction for renovating producing a minimum profit of 100,000 per project.
I am also a mentor, writer and speaker… but more about that later
From Hobby to Renovator
I did my first renovation as a 13 year old, on a farm in central Victoria. I made over my room in the latest 70’s style. It was one of those life defining moments. I had worked hard to learn new skills to transform my surroundings. In the process, I totally transformed how I felt about myself. I felt like a rockstar.
The power of renovating is not just in the physical change in the home or the money you make, it is in the energy and sense of self worth it builds in YOU.
From that point on, I was addicted to taking old ugly unloved properties and breathing new life into them.
Luckily, I married Stephen who shared my passion.
He has the added benefit of a building background. He helped me negotiate the established and sometimes misogynistic attitudes of the building industry particularly in the 80s.
It has been on renovating that I have built a marriage, a family, friendships and a successful business.
I found that while renovating is still a very male dominated area, as a woman I was naturally good at it. Women have an inherent sense of how a home should look, feel and work.
By renovating, we are taking home-making to a whole new level.
As a mother, wife, partner, daughter, friend and employee it’s easy to lose yourselves in the agendas of those you care or work for.
In renovating, you will be doing something for yourself that benefits everyone around you. Renovating is a skill that builds your worth in every way.
This has been the driving force of our business.
Why The School Of Renovating
Renovating can be quite lonely. I also knew that lots of women around me looked on my life with admiration but didn’t realise that they already had what it took.
By building the School Of Renovating, I am surrounded by people who share my passion.
I have the privilege of being able to help others how to transform their lives through renovating and property by:
- Supporting them in fulfilling their goal of making profit from renovating .
- Sharing my journey and learnings so that they can to avoid the pain of trial and error.
- Showing how they can leverage their existing resources and natural born skills.
To create an income and life they love through renovating and most importantly to share their joys and challenges along the way.
