Shukri Barbara is the founder and principal advisor at Property Tax Specialists, and with 100% of his reviews on Google being 5 stars, it’s safe to say he’s great at what he does! Barbara immigrated to Australia from Sudan with his family when he was 13 years old, and after studying commerce and marketing at university— and impressing his professors so much they became his clients!— he is now a CPA with over 30 years of experience in tax and accounting. Join us on this episode as we discuss his childhood in Sudan and how he adjusted to life in Australia, at an age that is turbulent enough as it is. He tells us about the best thing that ever happened to him at a time in his career when he didn’t even know what an invoice was, the practice he started with no brains but a lot of balls, and how an ad he saw in 2000 changed everything for him.
