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 see all of his books here.

To put the cherry on top of 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 on both ways of your commute!!)

Even better?

Paul shares some real life money hacks AND he’s also a ripper storyteller!

53 | The Money SMARTS System

By now, our listeners should understand the importance of good money management habits. It is the core of building a successful property investment portfolio and has been reiterated multiples times throughout this podcast.

Since episode 3, as part of the Four Pillars of Mastery, Bryce and Ben have talked in various occasions about Cash Flow Management and the flow of money in your household. This includes where money comes from, types of spending and types of investments for your surplus. In episode 41, they talked about the moving parts of cash flow management otherwise known as the money and accumulation model. This model looks at variables and assumptions to consider when you’re modelling sophisticated money and wealth outcomes.

Ep 53 Money SMARTS system - which account do I use - picOn page 58 of the Armchair Guide to Property Investing, they introduced the money SMARTS system. It’s a money management system and the name stands for Surplus, Mindset, Application, Resources, Timelines and Strategy. The book provided an overall summary of each section and also some tips on how you can set up this account structure yourself. But we’ve received some feedback that our readers would like us to explain this little bit more so that is exactly what Bryce and Ben have done in this podcast.

As an extension of the money SMARTS system, we are also sharing a “cheat sheet” on which account to use for different types of expenses. Just fill in your details below and we’ll send you the link to download it.

 

NEW Update:

Since this episode was produced, we’ve published a Free Online Platform and a Book (now a best seller) to help our community implement Money SMARTS better. If you’re interested, simply fill in the form below to create a free account and download a free e-copy of the book!
