Tony van de Kerkhof Launches Self-Development Guide for Success

Tony van de Kerkhof, renowned Finance Strategist, Self Development Author, and visionary entrepreneur, released his anticipated book, “You Are Your Biggest Problem, and That’s FANTASTIC!” on May 16, 2024. This transformative guide is designed to empower young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs with the knowledge and tools needed to achieve personal and professional success.

Tony, (only his mum ever calls him Antonius, and only when he’s in trouble!) has led a remarkable life filled with diverse experiences that have shaped his expertise and insights. At the age of 19, Tony left his home in Australia to embark on a transformative journey in China, where he lived for four years and mastered Mandarin fluently. This international experience broadened his perspective and laid the foundation for his global approach to business and personal development.

Upon returning to Australia, Tony’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to venture into the finance industry. After four successful years at NAB, where he rose to the role of Branch Manager, Tony co-founded Jacobson and Kerkhof Finance, a thriving financial services firm known for its innovative strategies and client-centric approach.

Driven by a passion for empowering individuals and businesses, Tony expanded his entrepreneurial ventures to include Finance Family, which has now subsumed Jacobson and Kerkhof Finance, boasting a team of 15 dedicated professionals. Additionally, Tony seized an opportunity to enter the conveyancing business, leveraging the existing partnerships in the finance businesses and combining them with the exceptional service and expertise of an existing conveyancing business, creating the Conveyancing Family.

Tony’s commitment to sharing knowledge and inspiring others led to the creation of Victor Delta Kilo, a platform focused on helping professionals enhance their businesses through technology and strategic insights. Tony’s speaking engagements at national broker events have earned him recognition as a thought leader in the finance industry.

Thinking about the legacy he wanted to leave his two young children, he wrote “You Are Your Biggest Problem, and That’s FANTASTIC!” Tony distills his years of experience and expertise into clear, actionable steps for personal and professional growth. The book is tailored for people who are beginning their journey in self development. Whether young (his sons are 10 and 14 respectively!) or old, the book breaks things down into super clear and achievable steps, with “red flags” at the start of every chapter to help people identify their own areas that need improvement.

Readers can expect to uncover transformative concepts such as IFTTT (If This, Then That), the Dichotomy of Life (Yin and Yang), and the aforementioned Red Flags that can assist in guiding them toward a fulfilling and successful life. Each chapter provides practical advice, real-world examples, and actionable strategies, making it a valuable resource for anyone looking to make positive changes.

Tony van de Kerkhof’s mission is to inspire individuals to take control of their lives, make informed decisions, and create the future they desire. With “You Are Your Biggest Problem, and That’s FANTASTIC!”, Tony invites readers on a transformative journey towards personal empowerment and success.
