Growing up we’re taught about a lot of things. But there’s one thing people missed gaining a good understanding of…. Financial Education

I’ve seen it often go wrong with people who manage to create some wealth. By not having a solid foundation, they find themselves sinking back instead of rising further.

To help you avoid this roller coaster, I’ve brought in the author of this amazing book, Money School. Lacey Filipich joins me as we go through the ins and outs of financial education. 

But wait there’s more because in Part 2 coming out next week, we’ll be covering asset selection, whether you should prioritise cash flow or growth assets, whether you should pay for the advice of a specialist, and how you can achieve financial independence sooner.

Make sure you’re building the wealth that will last, so get into this episode now!
