Episode 210 | John Hartill – How to Recover from Making Every Mistake Possible in the Investing Game

Folks, our Summer Series continues with ANOTHER ripper guest! And not only is today’s guest a very special TPC listener (!!) but also…. he is a REAL LIFE INVESTOR!

But there’s a problem…

John Hartill has learnt a lot of things the hard way. Unfortunately, he made mistakes along the way that, if we’re being completely honest, have cost him a small fortune. Over his property investment journey (expanding a couple of decades now) John has been spruiked to, sold to and, sadly, bought really bad properties.

The fact is… He’s tried every property investment strategy under the sun — buying house and land packages, developing property, renovating, investing in positively geared property — you name it folks!

And as a result, John’s had to learn the true cost of holding property and what’s at stake if you get your advice for free, buy Off the Plan or jump in without the correct education to support you.

And he’s here to share his personal story so that YOU can avoid making the same mistakes.

 

Here’s the gold…

Episode 201 | Money Lessons for Kids

Today’s show is a special shout out to our parent-folk out there (and for those who might one day be one)! Heck, if you just want some foundation money management tips, you’ll find some golden nuggets here too!

What we’re about to unpacked is a framework-stacked episode featuring THE Money Lessons for Kids — more specifically, how to teach your kids about money! Because, let’s face it, money makes the world go ‘round… so if our young folk aren’t given a proper head start as to how it all works, their futures will be impacted. It really is as simple and as straightforward as that.

So, how do you work out when and how to teach them?

Well, with 2 young boys each, we’ve asked ourselves the same thing. We get it — trying to run a household, manage your own money AND make sure your kids grow up to be respectable, decent and bright humans is no easy task. Adding to that the necessity of teaching them about money so that they can, not only survive in the big wide world but actually thrive in it… well, even we could do with some insights!

That’s what we want to give YOU today (if you’ve got more tips to teach our own kids too, we’d love to know!)…

 

Before plunge into the murky waters of Money & Kids 101, here are a few bits of housekeeping and the free resources we mention in today’s show…

Oh, and because kids learn A LOT just by watching what you do (so the way you manage your own money really matters), here’s a shameless plug for our new book, Make Money Simple Again!

As Bryce mentioned, his TV show Escape from the City premiers on the 3rd of January 2018! So make sure you spare some time between the cricket to check it out! Just a heads up, he’ll personally be appearing on the show a few weeks later on the 31st January 😉

 

Here’s what you’ll learn from today’s episode…

 

 

Episode 200 | Paul Clitheroe – Timeless Wisdom from the Original “Money” Guru

Folks, it’s finally here…… our 200TH EPISODE!!!!!!!!!!

Pheeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuuuppppp!!!!

(This is as close as we can get to a Party Horn sound.)

And, boy, do we have a legendary episode for you!!! To give you an idea folks — when we locked in today’s guest, Ben was cartwheeling and high-fiving all over the joint. And for good reason… because joining us today is none other than THEMoney” man himself, Mr Paul Clitheroe!!!

Look, we probably don’t need to tell you that from 1993 – 2002, Paul Clitheroe was indeed a household name — appearing in people’s lounge rooms as he hosted the wildly successful show Money on the Nine Network. Yep. Almost one in two households were watching his show, so if you’re like us, and you’ve got a bit of “salt and pepper” in your hair, chances are you were one of the folks watching!

For those Gen Y-ers who might not know Paul, he (along with his uni mates) founded the leading investment research and advisory company ipac, back in 1983. He’s got more than a handful of books to his name — Money, Marriage and Divorce, Making Money, The Road to Wealth, Free Yourself from Debt, Make your Fortune by 40… and this isn’t even all of them! You can stalk all of his books here.

To put the cherry on his very successful career, Paul’s gone on to dedicate his professional life to serving others, having been an active advocate of financial literacy for DECADES and championing ASIC’s MoneySmart Schools. To give you an idea, he’s Chairman of the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board and Financial Literacy Australia, as well as the Chairman of InvestSMART. Oh, and he’s also Chairman and chief commentator of Money magazine.

Yep. Doesn’t get much better folks!!

Well, maybe it does… because we’ve got him for over 1.5 hours of rock-solid gold!!! (Yep. You might need to listen to both ways on your commute!!)

The even better bit?

… Paul comes with real life money hacks AND he’s also a ripper storyteller!
