My general rule: Never borrow money to buy a depreciating asset. Follow this rule in the first place, have a job, take an interest in where your money goes, and you’ll never need a “money coach”.

…….and have any riotact readers used the services of this mob? any good?

Which means that if you want to get ahead, you need to borrow for appreciating assets?

I certainly think so, but you do need to know what you’re doing, and how to manage risk.

You’re a very clever milkman!!!!

True, slowly but surely is the key……..and knowledge is power……and don’t cross that blurry line from investing to gambling.

This is how I have done things. The ‘get rich slow’ approach is not very exciting, but it does work.

Every investment is a gamble, with varying degrees of risk.

There is no such thing as a risk-free investment.

The difference between gambling and investing is risk management, and knowing how to apply it. All investments have a degree of risk – it is how you link that risk to return and manage negative events that counts.

From my experience, one of the challenges is a lack of patience. Building wealth (or freedom as I prefer to call it) requires patience. Like gardening. Sometimes you just can’t make a plant grow faster, but you can do a lot of damage by trying to.

I think the issue I often see (sadly) is people leaving it too late and then feeling pressured to take on un-necessary risk, when they should be reducing risk and preserving their wealth if they had put as much priority on planning and budgeting, as getting the latest car or home theatre system. Budgeting helps of course too, and services such as the one advertised here can be very useful. It’s a small investment for a long term gain. Very small in fact when you consider how much we tend to blow on stuff these days. Often stuff we don’t even need.

And like with a personal trainer, you’ll get more results from from being pushed than with a year stuffing around in a gym.

I know because I’ve been there (in all of the above examples!).

And this kind of service really adds value to society. There are plenty of services and products that cater to short term appetite but this one can really help people.

Gambling is interesting too. I am often surprised how much trading is more like sport than investing. Emotions and investing don’t mix well. That’s what pokies are for. But at least pokies guarantee a rate of loss!
