About Ben

Meet Ben Pickard, a 24-year-old Software Developer from Melbourne and a close mate of Jason’s from their days at Telstra. Ben’s investment journey is a mix of crypto ventures, speculative shares, and his game-changing partnership with Dashdot.

His Dashdot success story began in Bunbury, where his maiden property skyrocketed from a 6.8% to an impressive 8.1% yield. A savvy trickster, Ben cleverly increased his property’s rent by $40 a week, defying norms.

Not one to hesitate, Ben even leveraged his Dashdot equity to buy a car within a year of his first property purchase. This sparks a lively debate on achieving goals while enjoying life.

Eager for more, Ben’s on the hunt for a second purchase, fueled by his property’s remarkable growth.
