“I needed to set something up so it’s essentially on autopilot and I’m protected from myself.”
Brendan Gale and his partner Marrissa have an unusual way of running our Money SMARTS system that we think is pretty cool. At first, this unorthodox twist made us go “Woah, what?!” and we kinda struggled to wrap our heads around it (we’re old school, folks)! But as you’re about to hear…. this surprise twist to the Money SMARTS system STILL works… and they’re trapping more surplus than ever before (just like they would if they were running it our ol’ simple way.)
Even better? Since running their “version” of Money SMARTS, they were able to….
- Afford their dream wedding in the Greek Islands (yep! Not a cheap affair folks — and there’s a bit of story about an unexpected cost that came up here, eek!)
- Invest in property
- And still have their own cash to spend!!
And the craziest thing is of all?? Before all this… Brendan was living paycheck-to-paycheck!
So if you want to hear from someone who has been running Money SMARTS for some time now… and you’re curious to hear about the spin they’ve put on it, which might actually work for you… then hit play on another great ep from our Summer Series 😉
Pssst…. yes, they’ve got the same name… but today’s guest is NOT the Richmond Football Club President, ha!
