Bernie's book chronicles his diagnosis of Bipolar, his acceptance of his condition, what he has learned and how he can share his education to inspire others. He believes that no matter who we are, or how much we have suffered, we can still achieve our dreams on our own terms.
Debilitated by mental illness, there was a time when Bernie was on government disability payments and incapable of working a full time job for over two years. Fourteen years on and a father to four young children, Bernie has made a point of balancing his illness along with his professional career, his family and being a positive role model.
Today, Bernie is the Managing Director of Focus Property Management, an award winning specialist property management real estate agency, which he founded in 2005. The business today manages around a quarter of a billion dollars of residential property across greater Sydney.
