Episode 235 | Money Hacks from the Money Queen – Chat with Effie Zahos

Folks, we’re up and about today!

Because not only is our dear friend Effie Zahos… aka the Money Queen… finally back on the Couch with us (It was WAAAY back in Episode 105 that we last checked in with her)… there’s also been a bit of a rate movement this week… the first in nearly 3 years! (Well, that, and our footy teams’ played each other on the weekend and Bryce came out on top of ol’ mate Kingsley!!)

What this rate movement means is a little more money in the bank for mortgage owners, which, especially when coupled with today’s episode that’s jam-packed full of Money Hacks, means that there’s a bit of extra money on the table that you can put to work for you. Of course, it does also mean that the Australian economy isn’t performing as well as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) had hoped, and ultimately there’s a LOT to be said about this decision. So, Ben has created a video on the June RBA Cash Rate Drop, which goes into detail about all this. You can check out the new rate announcement here.

But back to the wonderful, wise and VERY money-savvy guest who’s joined us today…!

It’ll probably come as no surprise to you who the Money Queen is… but we’ll take no chances… and remove all doubt as to who Effie Zahos is!!! She is indeed the “Money” Queen… as in Money Magazine‘s finance editor for over 22 years! Well, we should say WAS the editor cos up until very recently, Effie decided to hang up her Money boots and walk in her own shoes instead… and she’s JUST released a brand new book, A Real Girl’s Guide to Money: From Converse to Louboutins!!
And today she’s sharing her best Money Hacks and financial tips so that you can stay on track of your hard-earned cash and make sure you have enough in retirement!

And, yep, if you hadn’t put two and two together yet… Effie’s personally worked alongside the likes of the Original Money Guru, Paul Clitheroe — our 200th episode’s very special guest — for a couple of, ahh, DECADES.

So you’re in VERY safe hands!

Episode 229 | How to Release Your Money Fears – Chat with Denise Duffield-Thomas

Folks, did you know that almost all of us have buried “bad feels” about money lurking somewhere inside us?? And this contributes — rather significantly — to how we spend and earn our hard earned money… whether we’re aware of it or not!

Ah-huh…. That long-forgotten moment you witnessed when you were five?? … Still remembered! The way your parents spoke about money?? Still remembered! Basically, your psych has stored all your money stories somewhere… and these little tell-tales resurface at the best and worst of times. Say, when you’re putting yet another thing on credit… or refusing to spend a single dollar more than simply surviving. This stuff is not “woo-woo” either folks — it’s legit, and it impacts how each of us responds to and values money… the devil is just in our unique details!

And if there’s one woman who knows ALL about this, it’s a certain someone who wrote a book called —let’s be honest, you’ve probably heard about it — Get Rich Lucky Bitch.

Yep!! Joining us today is Money Mindset Mentor Denise Duffield-Thomas of LuckyBitch.com — aka the woman inspiring, mostly but not exclusively, other women on their very real “money blocks” and how to ditch their fears and simply get on with creating true wealth!! She’s a savvy (but “unbusy”) entrepreneur and the well-respected author of, yes, Get Rich Lucky Bitch as well as Lucky Bitch and most recently, Chillpreneurthe latter, which lets you in on the new rules for creating success, freedom and abundance on your terms!

Now… as two middle-aged fellas who are quick to admit we don’t have all the answers, we’ve gotta hand it to Denise — she, quite literally, is on the money here!! Obviously, we see A LOT of bad money managers and, sure, we’ve got our Money SMARTS Platform to solve this….. but today’s episode is a real eye-opener into WHY people are bad managers and how we (yep… women and men) can reach our absolute potential without lingering on the jitter-bugs from our past!

And folks … you can’t beat an expert in their field who’s “smoking what they’re selling”!!! So, let’s just say… Denise is CLEAR proof of this! Soon you’ll hear just how well her money story’s working out for her … and how you can steal her secrets to success!

Before we crack open the gold, if you’re looking for Julia Hartman’s “Property Tax Pack” that we released last week, you can DOWNLOAD the full Property Tax Q & A from Ep 226 and Ep 228 HERE

Also, Denise has kindly gifted us a copy of Get Rich Lucky Bitch AND her newly-released, Chillpreneur, so if you’re keen to be the Lucky Winner of BOTH BOOKS — Tell us Your #1 Money Block Here for Your Chance to Win!

Episode 219 | How going from 30 properties to Bankruptcy shaped this riches to rags… and back again story! Chat with Julie Ann Cairns

Wow-wee does this episode contain ALL the gold… and then some!!!

Unlike a “rags to riches” story, today’s very special guest — Julie Ann Cairns — shares her personal experience living RICHES to RAGS… and how she finally managed to overcome the money pattern that kept resurfacing in her life.

Of course, today Julie’s life’s mission is to empower people to live an abundant life free from false beliefs — and in this spirit, she wrote The Abundance Code – How to Bust the 7 Money Myths for a Rich Life Now (we’ve got two copies up for grabs, see further down for more 🙂 ) And as an economist and statistician, with over 25 years of experience in the fields of wealth creation, financial market education, and financial advice… this book makes sense…

… BUT that’s NOT where her story started!

Julie’s rollercoaster ride with money dug its roots right in when she was too young to question it — her father was a successful surgeon, her parents were property investors in a position to send their kids to prestigious schools, they lived in their dream home on a lake in Canada… in fact, they were so wealthy they could even to afford to own a “couple of airplanes”!!! (Crazy, huh?)

But then her parents lost everything. And what happened next triggered a chain of events that made Julie swear she’d NEVER end up bankrupt… except that, years later, she was in an almost-identical situation herself.

So… how on earth did she end up in the same predicament? And, most importantly, WHAT did Julie discover that explained why this was likely the case???

Folks, to give you a bit of a teaser… what Julie discovered about “subconscious barriers” is a GAME CHANGER for your own financial (and personal) wellbeing!

(So much so, you’ll barely hear Ben in this podcast — **speechless**).
